Stockroom exhibition at Cambridge Studio Gallery and Mixed Media work of Ness Alexandra.

Stockroom exhibition at Cambridge Studio Gallery and Mixed Media work of Ness Alexandra.

Paintings, drawings and collages. Ness Alexandra’s art practice is an exploration of the female psyche. Part of that exploration has seen her focus on domestic objects, creating a collection of Still Life’s that describe the interior of a woman’s world.
With this current exhibition, SHE IS…, Alexandra is delving into the realm of female expectations of body shape; commenting on the pressure mass media and the beauty industry places on women today. She has created body shapes that combine flat collages of magazine advertising with textural paint; over-laid nude paintings with dress patterns; and moulded beauty products with plaster to form bronzed mirrors.
With this exhibition, Alexandra is pushing the boundaries of how women are expected to conform to body image. She also produces beautiful still life’s and classic ink drawings that touch on her own psyche – one of discontent…
“We need our discontent in order to feel and enjoy our desire, and if events do not conspire to make us feel dissatisfied, we will arrange our own privations.” 

Stockroom Selection Exhibition 

From August this year Cambridge Studio Gallery is starting the first of our new stockroom exhibitions. We have selected works from artists that have had a history with the gallery as well as promoting some interesting new artists. There will be an eclectic selection of paintings, sculpture, jewellery and a few surprises!

While the gallery’s business model still represents artists by providing space for their exhibitions, we will be value adding to the viewer experience by dedicating the upstairs gallery space to the Stockroom Selection. Works will be displayed in a less formal “salon-hang” that allows clients to purchase and take home works on the day.

Kathy Siganakis was one of the participants from this exhibition and is of course a member of the Out of the Box group of Artists.

Here are two representational painted images where Kathy has responded to the title of the exhibition ‘Love, Life and Laughter’.

The third image was a response to our group name where each member made or painted a box.

The Out of the Box group are currently meeting and discussing our 2015 exhibition titled ‘Seven’.
