Zoomorphic

Zoomorphic

The half world between human and animal

The zoomorphic transformation of humans taking on animal form has been part of folklore and religion for millennia, from native American skin walkers, Egyptian gods and the creatures of European fairytales. These hybrids explore the imagery of fantasy and magic but also the essential animal instinct behind all human nature. The work in this exhibition explores the half world between human and animal through ceramics, textiles and print.

incorporating One Year On

Featuring the work of this year’s top graduates in the applied arts.

LGAC have travelled the UK to select the cream of this year’s graduates in the applied arts, searching for those who are pushing the boundaries of applied art whilst maintaining and developing the traditions of their craft. These are the makers and designers destined to lead and shape the next generation of applied artists.

This year we have also decided to expand our ‘One Year On’ section of the exhibition where we have handpicked a number of last year’s graduates to show how their work has evolved and progressed since they finished their degree courses Shannon Bartlett-Smith, Klara Capouskova, Laura Coles, Julie Heaton, Leah Jensen, Rhian Wyn Jones, Chrisoula Konstantakou, Rachel Lovatt, Victoria Radcliffe, Christian Vaughan Jones

Shared Vision

Shared Vision

The Collaborative work of Matt and Amanda Caines

Matt & Amanda Caines have both pursued their own fine art practices for many years, Matt as stone carver and Amanda as jeweller and mixed-media artist. In 2012 they relocated to Wales and started a process of uniting stone, wood, antler, metal and textiles. Their work binds together disperate mediums in a shared vision. This will be the first major exhibition of the couple’s collaborative work.

Trans Iberia

Trans Iberia

John Selway’s fifty years of painting the Peninsula

Part of a golden generation at the Royal College of Art that included the fledgling Pop Art luminaries Derek Boshier, David Hockney, Alan Jones, R. B. Kitaj and Barry Bates – John Selway immediately set about pursuing his own artistic agenda. Always working from memory, he has often ventured far and wide in search of suitable subject matter. An influential tutor at both Newport and Carmarthen Art Colleges, whether flirting with abstraction, drawing inspiration from literature or responding to a landscape, his primary concern still remains as always, the human condition.
