Blindarte contemporanea is proud to present Passage, a group exhibition curated by Simon Keenleyside, which includes eight artists who live and work in and around London: Ross Chisholm, Susan Collis, Sigrid Holmwood, Simon Keenleyside, Greg Rook, Noah Sherwood, Alexis M Teplin and Will Turner.

La Blindarte contemporanea è lieta di presentare Passage, mostra a cura di Simon Keenleyside, che raccoglie otto artisti che vivono e lavorano a Londra e dintorni: Ross Chisholm, Susan Collis, Sigrid Holmwood, Simon Keenleyside, Greg Rook, Noah Sherwood, Alexis M Teplin e Will Turner.

Brought together by the artist Simon Keenleyside - Passage engages with the current transitory nature of contemporary practice, stressing the experience of wondering in time, space and mediums. This multidisciplinary show presents the figure of the artist as a traveler whose passage through our cultural times suggests a multitude of possible alternatives to a single route. Through the diverse formats of expression and communication, Passage looks to reflect a contemporary understanding of mobility.

Riunito dall'artista Simon Keenleyside, il gruppo di artisti di Passage affronta la natura transitoria della pratica artistica contemporanea, evidenziando l'esperienza del viaggio nel tempo, nello spazio e nei mezzi. Questa mostra multidisciplinare infatti presenta la figura dell'artista come un viaggiatore il cui passaggio attraverso i tempi della cultura suggerisce una serie di possibili alternative ad un percorso unico. Attraverso diversi formati d'espressione e di comunicazione, Passage sembra riflettere una moderna comprensione della mobilità.

Ross Chisholm's practice is characterised by an exploration into the language and temporality of painting, through a reconfiguration of the medium's conventions, and the creation of composite worlds, where time, place and memory collapse. Using source materials from disparate points in time, such as society portraits from the 18th century, along with found photographs and slides of familial imagery, Chisholm's practice collapses histories and conventions. Forms of portraiture, photorealism and abstraction are investigated to leave the works as objects with an intrinsic temporality, around which webs of meaning and context continually shift.

La pratica di Ross Chisholm è caratterizzata da una esplorazione del linguaggio e della temporalità della pittura, attraverso una riconfigurazione delle convenzioni legate a questo medium, e la creazione di mondi compositi, dove tempo, luogo e memoria collassano. Utilizzando materie prime provenienti da contesti diversi nel tempo, come i ritratti della società del XVIII secolo, insieme a fotografie e diapositive di immagini familiari, la prassi di Chisholm condensa storie e convenzioni. Forme di ritrattistica, di fotorealismo e di astrazione sono studiati per lasciare le opere come oggetti con una temporalità intrinseca, attorno al quale le trame di significato e il contesto cambiano continuamente.

Susan Collis's work combines a drawing process with installation and sculpture - often creating environments that at first confuse and then delight the viewer. Her practice brings together extremes: the cheap and throwaway with the highly precious, the casual and instantaneous with the meticulously laboured. Her installations at a first glance may seem half-finished or nothing more than the neglected aftermath of a previous show. Only a closer look can reveal that, for example, the screws left in the walls are made of solid gold, and the relevant anchors are made of precious turquoise or that the leak of white paint is inlaid with mother of pearl. The precious materials she uses have no symbolic value but raise the status of everyday objects, reproducing the old "trompe l'oeil" trick that had never been employed for such menial things.

Il lavoro di Susan Collis combina un processo di disegno con l'installazione e la scultura, creando spesso ambienti che di primo acchito confondono, ma che successivamente dilettano lo spettatore. La sua pratica congiunge gli estremi: materiali usa e getta a basso costo con quelli di grande pregio, il casuale e istantaneo con il meticolosamente lavorato. Le sue installazioni a prima vista potrebbero apparire finite a metà o nient'altro che le conseguenze trascurate di una mostra precedente. Solo un esame più approfondito può rivelare che, ad esempio, le viti lasciate nelle pareti sono fatte di oro massiccio, i loro tasselli di prezioso turchese o che la vernice bianca versata è un intarsio di madreperla. I materiali preziosi che usa non hanno un valore simbolico, ma elevano lo status di oggetti di uso quotidiano, riproducendo l'antico trucco del trompe l'oeil che non è mai stato utilizzato per cose così umili.

Sigrid Holmwood's paintings of rustic scenes stem from her interest and participation in historical re-enactment groups and are made using authentic techniques from the early modern period (late 16th c). Her research often involves trawling through ancient archives, consulting with biologists, chemists and historians. The farmers, the main subjects of her works, are historic "re-enactors" according to Holmwood whom she identifies herself with: just like them, the artist tries to be as true as possible. The identification with and re¬enactment of peasants are integral part of the project of each painting.

I dipinti di Sigrid Holmvvood che ritraggono scene rurali originano dal suo interesse e dalla sua partecipazione a gruppi di rievocazione storica e sono realizzati con tecniche originali del primo periodo moderno (fine XVI sec). Il suo lavoro comporta spesso una ricerca a tappeto in antichi archivi e la consultazione con biologi, chimici e storici. I contadini, il soggetto principale delle opere sono per Holmwood "rievocatori" storici cui si identifica: come loro l'artista cerca la maggiore autenticità possibile. L'identificazione con e la rievocazione dei contadini sono parte integrante del progetto di ogni quadro.

Simon Keenleyside works within the tradition of British landscape painting; he explore the familiar surroundings of Essex, where he grew up and where he continues to live. In a recent move the artist has returned solely to two specific locations; the backwaters and tributaries of the Thames. Having endured numerous trips to just two sites the artist questions the ontological understanding of place and though references to the landscapes remain rife in the artists work, in the last year Keenleyside has further investigated the possibilities of painting; it is as if he asks, What else is there to discover? as the paintings are pushed further towards abstraction.

Simon Keenleyside lavora nell'ambito della tradizione della pittura paesaggistica britannica; egli esplora i dintorni familiari dell'Essex, dove è cresciuto e dove continua a vivere. Di recente l'artista è tornato solo in due località specifiche, le lagune e gli affluenti del Tamigi. Avendo compiuto numerosi viaggi in soli due siti l'artista si è interrogato sulla comprensione ontologica del luogo e sebbene i riferimenti ai paesaggi rimangano prevalenti nel lavoro degli artisti, nell'ultimo anno Keenleyside ha studiato ancora più nel dettaglio le possibilità della pittura; è come se, nel momento in cui l'artista spinge ogni dipinto verso l'astrazione, egli si chiedesse cosa ci sia ancora da scoprire.

Greg Rook looks at survivalism in its modern context, in terms of families choosing to disengage and act 'as if'. Through culture-crafting and story telling they are anticipating the collapse of society and constructing 'off grid' lives. There is a link between this survivalist culture-crafting and Levi-Strauss's idea of 'bricolage', and a parallel with the position of a contemporary painter working within our expressive pluralism.

Greg Rook guarda al movimento "survivalista" nel suo contesto moderno, e cioè alle famiglie che scelgono di disimpegnarsi e di agire "come se...". Mediante culture-crafting (costruzione di una cultura alternativa) e racconti essi stanno anticipando il collasso della società e stanno costruendo stili di vita "fuori dagli schemi". Esiste un legame fra questo culture-crafting della sopravvivenza e l'idea di "bricolage" di Lévi-Strauss, e un parallelo con la posizione dell'artista contemporaneo che lavora all'interno del nostro pluralismo espressivo.

Noah Sherwood chooses potentially inert material, from studio debris to found objects and industrial ready-made items to make his work. His manipulation techniques involve an intense process of transformation to develop complex sculptural and architectural freestanding forms. Sherwood's forms are not fixed, hinting at a keen interest in collage and assemblage and of wider perceptual and phenomenological concerns about the nature of space and objects.

Lo scultore Noah Sherwood sceglie, per realizzare i suoi lavori, materiali potenzialmente inerti: da frammenti di studio ad oggetti ritrovati, a prefabbricati industriali. Le sue tecniche di manipolazione comportano un intenso processo di trasformazione che sviluppa complesse forme scultoree e architettoniche autoportanti. Le forme di Sherwood non sono fisse: accennano a un vivo interesse per il collage e l'assemblaggio e a più ampi interessi percettivi e fenomenologici sulla natura dello spazio e degli oggetti.

Alexis M Teplin's practice focuses on an exploration into the aesthetics and politics of seduction through painting, sculpture and performance. Within her practice, Teplin offers abstraction as a central theme, drawing from historical painting movements, the eroticism of the Rococo period, the Impressionists, early Modernism and Abstract Expressionism. Adopting the styles and subjects of her forebears through vigorous brushwork and animated colours, Teplin creates a cross pollination of historical applications and depictions, whilst questioning the positioning of the figure and the figurative.

La pratica artistica di Alexis M Teplin si concentra sulla esplorazione dell'estetica e dell'etica della seduzione attraverso la pittura, la scultura e la performance. All'interno del suo lavoro Teplin propone l'astrazione come un tema centrale, attingendo ai movimenti della pittura di storia, all'erotismo del periodo rococò, agli impressionisti, al primo modernismo e all'espressionismo astratto. Con l'adozione di stili e soggetti tratti dai suoi riferimenti storici, attraverso pennellate vigorose e colori vivaci, Teplin crea una commistione incrociata di applicazioni storiche e nuove rappresentazioni, mettendo in discussione il concetto di figura e di figurativo.

Will Turner seeks to imbue the everyday with magic and otherness of more innocent times in our lives. It is about the simple pleasures of consumption and about themes of belonging, a gentle and romantic nostalgia for teenage pastimes and hobbies. They are images with an appeal to a certain demographic, but also with a universal validity. The images in his collages and drawings are held in a figurative mode of expression with intense colours and a great level of detail.

Will Turner cerca di permeare il quotidiano con la magia e l'alterità dei tempi più innocenti della nostra vita. Si tratta di semplici piaceri di consumo e di temi di appartenenza, una dolce e romantica nostalgia per i passatempi dell'infanzia e gli hobby. Sono immagini che richiamano un determinato pubblico, ma anche con una validità universale. Le immagini nei suoi collage e disegni presentano una modalità espressiva figurativa, con colori intensi e un elevato livello di dettaglio.
