The Garden Gallery - Summer Exhibition Truth to Material Until 18 July on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 11 - 5, or by arrangement. 100 years have passed since the death in the trenches of WW1 of the outstandingly talented sculptor Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, at the age of 23. Influenced by Jacob Epstein, Gaudier-Brzeska was an early exponent of the practise of direct carving, originally introduced by Brancusi. Direct carving adhered to the doctrine of truth to materials, allowing the innate qualities of the stone, marble or wood to show through simple forms, respecting the block, and often polished to bring out the colour and grain. Discussing Mexican sculpture, Henry Moore said, “Its 'stoniness', by which I mean its truth to material, its tremendous power without loss of sensitiveness, its astonishing variety and fertility of form-invention and its approach to a full three-dimensional conception of form, make it unsurpassed in my opinion by any other period of stone sculpture.” Moore also observed of truth to material, “the artist shows an instinctive understanding of his material, its right use and possibilities.” Barbara Hepworth said, “The sculptor carves because he must.” Whether an artist carves or models he/she is, presumably, inspired by the medium of choice and works with it to create pieces which emphasise form? It may be stone or wood, but it could be glass and its prismatic reflective qualities, the modernity of steel, the classicism of bronze, or the malleability of clay. Truth to Material is an opportunity for some 50 artists, through their work, to ‘talk’ about their chosen medium and how it expresses their ideas and creativity. Participating RBS members are Shaun Brosnan, Sioban Coppinger, Sally Fawkes, Richard Jackson, Charlotte Mayer, Jason Mulligan, Rosie Musgrave, Peter Newsome, Suzanne Redstone, Colin Reid, Shelley Robzen, Helen Sinclair, Guy Stevens, Johannes von Stumm, Almuth Tebbenhoff and Patricia Volk.

This series of exhibitions of sculptural installations has been curated by artists and lecturer Denise Bryan. It is an opportunity to bring works made by three London based artists and RBS members, Denise Bryan, Joanna Sands and Silvina Soria. The three installations to be shown are large scale and share certain formal qualities; all the pieces are assembled from separate elements or units. By using this method of construction the exhibiting artists create a kind of spatial geometry to explore their ideas. Each installation has been created as a site-specific work, the first two exhibitions in the series are pieces that are being given a second life in the Central Space; the third installation has been created specifically for the Central Space. Der Spiegelsaal, 19 Princelet and Rooting, each ask questions about how sculpture relates to the architecture in which it is placed and how site-specific installations can be transformed when they are recreated in alternative spaces.

June 1st at 6.30pm. ForumArts is visiting Denise Bryan during her exhibition at Central Space Gallery where she will be presenting The Mirror Hall and other Berlin stories. Bryan will talk about the work that she made whilst carrying out a residency in Berlin which resulted in her returning in 2014 to create a site specific installation in the Pavillon am Milchhof. In this talk, part performative lecture, the artist will give you an insight into the research and development process of a large scale project and the difficulties of creating work in a foreign country and how a residency can change your practice and lead to new works, In addition she will give you some insight into how the work has changed now that it has been re-sited in Central Space Gallery.

Dick Onians' new piece “The Still Centre of the Turning World” commissioned for New Capital Quay, Greenwich Reach, descends from a line of sculptures that explore overlapping forms. The spherical shape is a reference to the globe. The form of the piece with its equator, longitudinal features and tilt allude to the work’s location near the Greenwich Mean and Greenwich’s historic role as a centre for navigation and worldwide trade. The title highlights the idea of mystery at the center of things and our ability to see our own reflection on the inside implicates us in the central mystery.

This large scale mirrored glass installation has just been given by Donna MacMillan to the Palm Springs Art Museum for their permanent collection. It consists of 100 large sealed bottles suspended down 3 floors in their main entrance to the collection. Each bottle contain a work/message by another artist who I invited to participate in the original project commissioned by Ha gamle prestegard for Stavanger 2008 - when it was European City of Culture. The work was originally installed in a 6 story lighthouse and recalls the classical story of Zeus and Danae, where in order to have her he turns himself into a shower of gold.
