The Periodic Table of Emotions

The Periodic Table of Emotions

Aidan Moesby

Main Gallery

11 February 2017 until 25 March 2017

The Periodic Table of Emotions, Sagacity, is a live application which was designed to capture the mood of a city. It is based on sentiment analysis of live feeds or those who tweet directly to the application. By assigning a unique hashtag to an event, exhibition, organisation the applications become wider within more specific target groups. It can also operate within purely geo-located parameters. Sagacity is ultra responsive in that an emotion can be illuminated within 30 seconds of it being sent and being represented on screen in full hue.The colour fades with lack of use over time.

Craft Showcase

11 February 2017 until 25 March 2017

Working from her spare room by the sea, Lucy Brasher’s work focuses on the animal form incorporating the human element. 

Her work has a touch of whimsy with a darker undertone, much like the fables and folklore that have influenced them. All of Lucy’s work is created by hand and machine using predominantly reclaimed and re-purposed fabrics.

Jewellery Showcase

11 February 2017 until 25 March 2017

After studying a degree in Jewellery and Silversmithing at the School of Jewellery in Birmingham Jodie moved to London to pursue her dreams and spent seven years working for fashion jewellery designer Scott Wilson creating collections for trade shows including London Fashion Week and one off commission pieces for major fashion houses and celebrities including Pringle, Swarovski, Robbie Williams and Kylie.

Jodie returned to Cardiff and in 2008 set up her own business establishing herself within galleries and shops throughout the UK with her Ribbon and  Equilateral Collections. 

The Ribbon Collection is her signature range, inspired from the moment you unravel a roll of satin ribbon, it twists and loops, as you lift it a knot forms. She manipulates the metal creating a light wearable adornment that looks beautiful from every angle.

The half world between human and animal

Main Gallery

03 December 2016 until 28 January 2017

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.

Oriel Cafe Gallery

03 December 2016 until 28 January 2017

As a textile and print artist Monmouthshire based Penny Turbull's primary interest is in collage and the layering of texture and colour to create her image. Her work involves the use of an embellisher allowing her to combine fabrics and colour in a painterly way, giving more scope to mix and fragment colour producing an interesting background to further develop with stitch.

Free machine embroidery using a black thread gives a sketch like quality which is further worked with hand stitching to add detail and movement.

Penny works from her studio in Monmouthshire.
