"The human condition gives me the greatest sense of inspiration, providing an interest in how people communicate, relate and interact with one another, ultimately studying coping mechanisms, strategies, and patterns within life - experimenting with how we manage to learn and adjust with the constant changes that we will experience over time, finding ways to improve or rebuild our lives under given pressures. My main focuses are seen and developed from everyday materials, surroundings and subjects that have been exposed to the elements of life itself. I look for unusual colours, patterns, textures and forms within my subjects using these to bring awareness and a connection with what we tend to take for granted, ultimately to brighten up our own lives. On a personal level it is a productive way to cope with my past and ongoing stresses - using my feelings/emotions and memories to work theraputicaly within my practice, thus constantly re-evaluating myself within my given landscape and mind frame working in whatever expressive context I choose to work in."

"My creative workings continually allow me to become stronger and gain more confidence within life itself. It has been, is, and always will be a channel for me to voice lightness and darkness through my past, present and future experiences. I choose to work this way, and I do so as it allows me to cope, persecute, destroy and ultimately to be perceived and understood."
Leon Jakeman.

Eye Candy

Contemporary Craft at the Kitchen Gallery

You are warmly invited to a Private View of Lisa Ashcroft
at the Kitchen Gallery

3rd Septmber 1.30-4.00pm

The Kitchen Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of art
work by Lisa Ashcroft. Lisa was selected from twenty-two finalists to be the
first winner of the Kitchen Gallery Open; meet her at her solo show Eye Candy at
the private view on Sunday 3rd September 1.30-4.

Lisa says of her work:
"I use non-traditional materials including glitter, plastic
figures, hanging air fresheners, toys, magnetic letters typically thought of as
garish and crass to create intricate and delicate works.

I use kitsch to incorporate the commonplace to question
society's morals in a formal way embracing popular culture.

My interest is how I merge urban culture and perception: the
way we look at the world, building up an image of the whole from different
fragments of travel (looking and reacting to culture) and humour (universal
language). I try to embrace, yet challenge aesthetic traditions and their
critical interpretations.

Everyone absorbs influence I chose mine carefully then my
style developed as part of my personality. Each painting is created by the
obsessive labour of stitching. The viewer is drawn in by the sublime, found in
the sparkle of glitter, the sumptuous textures and vivid colours in which, the
'cute' layered appearance camouflages the crude and seedy (mimicking our own

"Silent Sound is Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard's most ambitious work to date, it is a performance and installation and will be presented as part of the Liverpool Biennial of contemporary art.
On Thursday 14th September 2006 Forsyth and Pollard will stage a uniquely emotive experience which explores the mind's susceptibility to subliminal suggestion.
The performance will take place in the Small Concert Hall in St. George's Hall in Liverpool.
The artists have joined forces with two uniquely talented collaborators. Jason Pierce, leader of the critically acclaimed band Spiritualized, has written the musical composition and will perform the piece on the night with a string quartet and supporting musicians."
