You're so lovely by M.M. Kizi


Harefield Hungry Hare and ReBeat galleries from 22 August until October 2016


Still I like you by M.M. Kizi
Still I like you by M.M. Kizi

M.M. Kizi was one of the participating artists for the Secret Rose auction. Her pictures explore narratives that connect the seen, the sensed and the dreamed. We will be exhibiting the of her themes: 


  • Twotions: Tweeted notions. These are visual whims – flights of fancy the artist posts daily on twitter. 
  • CHUWS: Chronicles of an unreliable woanderer (the word woanderer references the physical wandering and the mental wondering together at the same time). CHUWS are images made from mixing up news items of the day- thereby unreliably chronicling.
  • PIFS: pictures inspired by films- Artists from Warhol to Wylie enjoy film as an inspirational source of material. 

To mark the launch of her exhibition 'You're So Lovely' in Harefield, the artist will visit the hospital and speak to patients, drawing their story in one small picture, a sort of secular ex-voto.

Jennie Ing 

 

The Bistro, behind Fulham Wing, Royal Brompton Hospital

 

National Gallery | Jennie Ing
National Gallery | Jennie Ing

Jennie’s work is inspired by an interest in architecture, a fascination with the way space is taken up in our cities and what it is that gives a place its identity. This, combined with her love of the patterns, repetitions and colours found in the built environment, lead to her colourful layered linocut prints. Much of her work is of London’s iconic buildings, but some is of lesser known views and of landmark buildings in other cities.
 
She works in relief print, using the reduction method to achieve her layers of bold colour.  This involves printing each colour separately, with the successive cutting away of areas from the surface of a flat block of lino, inking the remaining area and printing from this onto paper, continuing until the finished print is achieved. All of this is done by hand, with the printing taking place on her Victorian albion press. With the reduction block there is no going back and the whole edition must be finished at the same time. 
 
She is a member of Greenwich Printmakers, Southbank Printmakers and the Fountain Gallery at Hampton Court, and shows work at various galleries and art fairs including The Battersea Affordable Art Fair, The Landmark Arts Centre Art Fair, the Urban Art Fair in Brixton and the Brighton Art Fair. She has work in collections at Johnson Matthey’s London office, BNY Mellon (Brentwood) and the London Councils office, as well as having work in other collections in both the UK and abroad. Recently Blue Island Press published a range of her cards which are now being sold in central London Paperchase stores.

Oliver Knott - 1000 Cranes for CF

 

Main foyer - Royal Brompton Hospital


1000 Cranes
1000 Cranes by Oliver Knott

A thousand origami cranes or 'Senbazuru' is conidered a powerful benevolent charm and is often associated with prosperity, long life and recovery from illness. Japanese legend states that if you fold a thousand origami cranes in one year your wish will be granted.

'When I folded my 1000 cranes I wished for a cure for cystic fibrosis. I was inspired by my friend Kate, who has lived with cystic fibroisis all her life, but her double lung transplant at Harefield means she still has time to smile!


"The process of folding the cranes and hand-sewing them to the mobile was time consuming, but I am pleased with the results and hope to use the mobile to raise awareness of cystic fibrosis.'
