Emma Neuberg’s latest iteration of Drapes, called, simply, Drape, shows at Craft Central UK, in East London, until 5th February 2019, alongside a collection of large pastel drawings. The series on show presents a new iteration of the large scale works unique to the industrial gallery space, The Forge.*
The show is called Memory of Colour and the works grouped represent a collection of pastel drawings and fabric prints from the period 2014 to 2018.
“Drapes is an immersive forest of 20 fabric folds patterned with brightly bold and textured foliage, bringing the outside world in. Totems to the natural world, this installation subtly breathes in the space as the geometric artworks softly flutter in the breeze and move the viewer’s eye from the artworks’ surface to their abstracted depths.” Saff Williams, Curator at Studio 7 Projects, London (2018).
The large pastel drawings show the immediacy of working with gestural motions, recollections and memories in order to arrive at new, colourfield-inspired forms of thought. Each piece (paper and canvas) informs the next in a continuous cycle of progression, development, meaning and culture.
The exhibition is open to the public, Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, by appointment, at The Forge, Craft Central, London E14 3AE.
Please contact the studio for an invitation to the PV taking place 6 – 9pm on 31st January 2019.
