Lon­don based Cana­dian Nancy Cogswell trained at Wim­ble­don Art School and gained her MA from City & Guilds Lon­don Art School.
Her most recent work is a response to thoughts about our per­cep­tions of time — the mea­sures we apply to time pass­ing, to decay and the sub­lime — and to the inter­play between fig­u­ra­tion and abstraction.

BLACK COUN­TRY

Sep­tem­ber 12 — 5 Octo­ber 2013
Open­ing 11 Sep­tem­ber 6:30pm

Curated by Nancy Cogswell
 
This exhi­bi­tion by seven artists from the UK and Ire­land, presents works that broadly relate to the term Black Coun­try, a term more com­monly used to refer to an area in Eng­land that was known for met­al­work­ing and the extrac­tion of iron ore and coal dur­ing the indus­trial rev­o­lu­tion. The use of the term here, as an idea, has more to do with a res­o­nance and an asso­ci­a­tion with ques­tions about mem­ory, uncer­tainty and con­fronta­tion through a phys­i­cal, metaphor­i­cal or psy­cho­log­i­cal frame­work – an explo­ration of the dark sub­con­scious, a duplic­i­tous unnerv­ing, and the buried and hid­den. 
 
Rob Brown’s works exam­ine the way vir­tual real­ity con­t­a­m­i­nates the ‘real’ world. 
Nancy Cogswell’s paint­ings involve sce­nar­ios with objects such as tables and draw­ers that are given an emblem­atic char­ac­ter to pro­duce uncer­tainty and intrigue through abstract­ing the fig­u­ra­tive.
Julia Hamilton’s ‘deci­sive’ paint­ings have a solid­ity that coun­ter­points per­sonal mem­o­ries and evoke a nos­tal­gic long­ing. 
Chris Hanlon’s works of pared back frag­ments of objects and spaces engen­der a still, enig­matic atmos­phere and a sense of some­thing lost or for­got­ten.
Richard Hoey’s works explore an under­cur­rent of con­flict between sex and reli­gion through the manip­u­la­tion of images from the broad pool of pop­u­lar cul­ture. 
Reece Jones’ process dri­ven, dark draw­ings carry an intense and absorb­ing psy­cho­log­i­cal charge that have a fic­tion rem­i­nis­cent of cin­e­matic loca­tions. 
Gillian Lawler’s paint­ings explore ideas con­cern­ing archi­tec­tural unease, ref­er­enc­ing imag­i­nary, fic­tional land­scapes that explore a dystopian science-​fiction terrain.
