Exhibiting with Vic Moreton at Spike Island Open 04 – 06 May in Studio 105

Download the Spike Island guide here

VJ Moreton’s photomontage and collage is grotesquely frank and stark. Each monochromatic landscape or portrait, a painstakingly constructed hybridisation of cultural and political references. “Refusing to bland out the picture” with Photoshop, he meticulously builds and photographs the scenes under precise lighting conditions. The resulting images simultaneously poignant, and in and out of tune with today’s visual culture.

VJ Moreton studied at Meadow School of Arts, Dallas, Texas and has exhibited widely, gaining many awards. Collections include Arts Council England, The Lisson Gallery and private collections in the USA, France and the UK.

Constructors Gallery Showcase

South of The River 2018 800 x400cm Archival pigment print

Underneath the Wren church St Mary Le Bow on Cheapside – a showcase of work by artists currently being exhibited at the Constructors Gallery, an external visual arts space at the southern end of Blackfriars Bridge.

The showcase features work by Rupert Hartley, Sophie Horton, Laura Moreton-Griffiths, Katrina Russell-Adams and Caroline Underwood.

The Constructors Gallery is a collaboration between Transport for London, Better Bankside, local developers and to create an outdoor gallery space on the hoardings by the southern side of Blackfriars Bridge.

Artists, living or working in the London Borough of Southwark, were invited to create artwork inspired by the theme of Construction. Eight artists were selected by a panel of judges representing Transport for London, Better Bankside, Southwark Council, a local developer and representatives from the local community.

Conversations between women artists

The Fine Arts are notorious for their lack of representation for women. With female artists less likely to have work sold through a gallery or achieve the highest sums at auction. The situation is changing and Her Art-Story celebrates the achievements of successful women working in the arts.

Her Art-Story is a series of intimate conversations between invited female artists and curators intended to provide inspiration to negotiate your own path in the art world or at the least have a greater understanding of female practitioners breaking new ground. All the artists at the forefront of their field share how they developed their practice and professional career and offer straightforward advice.
