Summer Exhibition – Robin Stemp

Why not pop in and see our Summer Exhibition on now until the 4th August? With works from both new and old faces there is something for everyone! Take for example Photographic Artist Robin Stemp…

Originally a painter, Robin Stemp was seduced into photography in the mid 1990’s. However, she still thinks in that way and so her images are intentionally quite painterly. This is quite marked in the interiors, which came about when the American poets, Debora Greger and William Logan found a dolls’ house on a skip and immediately thought of Robin. Because she likes large, almost empty rooms to photograph and she lives in a small house, she has to create her own and these have to be in miniature. By being sparsely furnished (if at all) they can evoke a mood – which mood is up to the viewer.

‘I line up objects on a shelf in my studio and watch the light move in through the open windows, with light and objects sharing an equal part in the composition. Maybe my interest in domestic subjects was forged when, as a working artist and mother of three, I had to multi task and could not go off in search of inspiration, and so found it in the things immediately around me.’

As a painter Robin exhibited in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, New English Art Club, Royal Watercolour Society and in many solo shows in Cambridge and elsewhere. Robin’s photographs have also been exhibited widely and are in various public and private collections. Working as an art journalist, meant that she was in contact with every kind of visual art and this has opened her eyes to all possibilities.

Celia Bartlett – Ailec Photography

Celia Bartlett has over thirty years of experience in working with photography, and currently works under the name of Ailec Photography and shortly, also Ailec Design. She has a BA Hons Graphic Design from Cambridge School of Art at Anglia Ruskin plus a Post Graduate Certificate in Book Arts from London College of Communication.

“I first began an interest in photography around the age of fourteen when I was able to borrow assorted basic or old cameras. After receiving a brand new Pentax SLR for my twenty-first birthday, I swiftly went on to develop a passion for the art. I was fortunate enough to achieve recognition for my images early on at a local level, confirming that my eye for a picture was a skill worth pursuing. From there I went on to capture landscape and documentary images throughout the following years of world travel and also during every-day life.”

The transition to digital photography began in 2000, with the full switch to a Canon DSLR coming in 2007. Since then Celia ventured into informal portraiture and wildlife photography. She was fortunate to be part of a Canon delegation to Kenya in 2009, and coupled with a trip to Tanzania earlier in 2009, it provided her with the resources for her exhibition.

Noel Myles

Widely established photographer Noel Myles is one of the artists exhibiting in our Summer Exhibition here at i2 Art Gallery. Throughout his work there is a persistent aim to extend the still photographic image beyond the single moment and the static viewpoint. The intention is to evoke the perception of accumulated experience. His photographs establish a form of depiction that refers to moving film and single-frame photography but which is independent of both.

“The prints in this exhibition are all PALLADIUM PRINTS. Palladium along with platinum and gold comprise the Noble Metals. I make light-sensitive salts with Palladium and coat artist’s pure cotton paper by hand. The negatives are then exposed in contact with the paper to make the image. Each individual rectangle in these pictures corresponds to a complete (uncut) negative. Many dozens of negatives are sorted before the final image is composed. They can be taken over the period of several weeks.”

 “I want to liberate my still photographs from the static viewpoint and the single moment. They do not record a fixed position in time or space. They are composed in the studio not in the camera. I hope they encourage prolonged contemplation that moving film does not provide and that these accumulated compositions present and extended sends of experience in a still image that a single-frame photograph does not achieve.”

Myles’s pictures have been shown in solo and mixed exhibitions that include the V&A Museum, National Museum of Photography, Film and Television, National Portrait Gallery, Contemporary Art Society, Royal College of Art, Royal Academy of Art, Royal Photographic Society and the Serpentine Gallery. Noel has been Artist-in-Residence for Rowe and Maw, Shaftesbury PLC and ITN.

“I had one print exhibited for a year in the V&A’s History of Photography display. During the past 2 years, my pictures have been shown in the Art Fairs in New York, London and Amsterdam.”

Morning Bloggers! In our LandMarks exhibition, Tony Worobiec is our featured photographer.

Tony Worobiec studied fine art at The University of Newcastle upon Tyne and spent 18 years as head of a large design faculty in Dorset. He has won awards for photography in the UK and internationally, and has had work exhibited in London’s Barbican Gallery, Bradford’s National Museum of Photography and The Fox Talbot Museum Lacock. He is a founder member and current chairman of the prestigious Arena Group of Photographers.

A passionate traveller, Tony (together with his wife Eva,) has made frequent visits to the USA, documenting the depopulating areas of western Nebraska, North and South Dakota and south-eastern Montana. The culmination of this work has been the much celebrated book “Ghosts in the Wilderness; Abandoned America” (published by AAPPL,) which shows numerous haunting images of deserted communities and homesteads, a graphic illustration of the American dream backfiring in a hostile land.

He is a fine art photographer with work in the permanent collection of The Royal, The Fox Talbot Museum and in numerous private collections here in the UK, in Europe, Japan and in The States.
