EllyMental

EllyMental

Jewellery Showcase

03 February 2018 until 17 March 2018

EllyMental Jewellery is the transformation of Elly's little illustrations into lovingly and meticulously hand crafted pieces of resin jewellery. Elly is inspired by designs based on an interest in fun nostalgia, victoriana and animals. She incorporates her drawings with found ephemera such as 1950's books, Victorian newspapers and delicate home-made papers.  Items are multi-layered with metal and coated with resin to create a strong and robust end piece.

Material Presence: Zoe Preece

Material Presence: Zoe Preece

A domestic scene

Main Gallery

31 March 2018 until 19 May 2018

Zoe Preece is drawn to thresholds, to transient spaces, to the in-between. Taking notice of moments that might go unseen, she contemplates the meniscus on a spoon filled to the point of tipping, or the precarious balance of two cups stacked one on top of the other on a kitchen surface, each on the brink of something. She recognises an uncertain beauty here and a longing that is resonant of human experience. The white porcelain clay she uses becomes a metaphor, its movement from one state to another embodying aspects of human being.

 

Roger Cecil

Roger Cecil

Main Gallery

02 June 2018 until 21 July 2018

Roger Cecil (1942-2015) has been described as one of the great abstract artists of his generation, yet in his lifetime he was little known outside a circle of fellow painters. He turned his back on a Royal College of Art scholarship in the 1960s to return home to Abertillery to paint on his own and without influence. This exhibition will show his extraordinarily beautiful paintings alongside jewellery and 3d work which has never been exhibited.
