Recent work by Elie Salt and Andrea Sinclair with live music by URI, indie folk singer/song writer.
Andrea Sinclair‘s work largely features drawing, whether it is drawing in space with embossed and coloured pieces of copper or drawing using thread by hand and machine. The bleak yet subtle landscapes of the Thames estuary provide inspiration as do the textures and tiny figures seen on nearby Hackney Marshes.
Elie Salt bases her work around wildlife, using direct observation, field sketches and recording as a starting point. Drawing on the rich tapestry of urban wildlife and habitats across greater London (and sometimes beyond). Most of the work on display in this exhibition is from two observational exercises of some of our more common urban species – the stretch of river between the Blackfriars and Westminster Bridge.
URI is a London based indie folk Singer/Songwriter whose expressive and melancholic tones captivate his audience, encouraging each listener to take a risk and visit the deep and sensitive sides of their emotions. Originally from Tel-Aviv, and taking inspiration from an eclectic range of artists, URI creates a strong intimacy through his engaging story telling, whilst delivering a powerful and emotional vocal performance.
Exhibition runs 2nd – 28th Feb
