“Artist-in-Residence Kirstin Wood is hosting an exhibition of her paintings at Gatton Hall, Reigate. Alongside Kirstin’s colourful semi-abstracts and contemporary pet portraits will be a series of collaborative sculptures created by the Art Club which Kirstin runs with students from years 7, 8 & 9. This is her first exhibition since starting at the school and Kirstin has challenged herself to produce one painting per week in the six months leading up to the actual day. Kirstin works spontaneously and intuitively using photographs as inspiration and she loves the
work of Turner, Monet and Klimt and you can see their influence in her paintings. Original paintings and prints will be available to buy at the exhibition plus the chance to win a signed framed print.”

Layers of Identity
Bozena Czyz, Michal Cabaj and Lukas Kasprowicz
6-12 April 2015
Private View: Thursday 9 April 6-9pm
This exhibition focuses on the subject of human identity and how the unique character of each individual can be expressed through the form of art.
The complexity of human emotions, our individual experiences, beliefs or even changing moods, can all influence the artwork whilst it is being conceived. These elements, amongst others, contribute to what’s considered our identity.
Three Polish artists – Bozena Czyz, Michal Cabaj and Lukas Kasprowicz – present their works at Espacio Gallery exploring how the artist engages with their individual piece of art depending on the emotional state at the time of work. Their attempt is to capture some of these intense moments.
In order to achieve this, the working process is often treated by the artists as a guide rather than a fully controlled approach, allowing the spontaneous decisions to take over the control. The highly diluted layers of paint applied one upon another in some of the works or quick and decisive brush strokes in others, create the sense of space and depth.
All three artists find the emotional element as a critical ingredient in creating a narrative and therefore making a successful artwork following the words of Mark Rothko: “I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on.”
