Secret Postcard 2022

    @ Sprout Arts       

Tuesday 25th January to Saturday 5th February 2022

Opening Hours: 11am to 5pm daily

SP2020 Sprout 

Secret Postcard Exhibtion - Mini Art on a Postcard for £5 each

Opens tomorrow 25th at 11am
‘Secret’ because you aren’t allowed to pick up the postcards, you don’t know who the artist is until you’ve purchased it - it could be a well known artist, a local student, an amateur artist or your neighbour! All proceeds go towards the running of Sprout which is non-profit, for the community and run entirely by volunteers.
A huge thank you to everyone that has donated postcards - they are wonderful and we have really loved opening them as the mail arrives each day.
Please come along to look at the range of cards and buy a few - we have amended the format so they are able to be written on and posted as normal postcards if you wish.

Marion is a non-figurative painter, whose paintings are made up of thinly stained and saturated coloured layers. The structure is developed through the divisions of squares and rectangles. Process and intuition also play a decisive role.

She has exhibited in a wide range of venues including the Royal Academy and the Cello Factory and was selected for The London Group Open in 2017 and 2019.
She was long listed for the Jacksons Painting Prize in 2019 and will be taking part in The Beep Painting Biennial in Oct. 2020.

MARGO RANDOM

'Random Elements'

24th May - 4th June 2022

Open Tuesday - Sunday, 11am – 5pm

Private View - Tuesday 24th May, 6-8pm

 

Margo Random

I am interested in exploring different colour palettes and unusual compositions to impart a mood or feeling.  I hope that all my work, whether it be a portrait or a bowl of fruit contains some emotional undertones.  I also like to make art viewing the composition as a whole and not get too bogged down in detail.  In this way, I hope to engage the viewer in a two way conversation that leaves room for their own feelings and interpretations.

MR A Dream of ObjectsMR Bird Pot and Tulips

MR Frog in Leaf LitterMR Pots and Peony

 

Margo’s work encompasses landscape, still life and portraits with an abstract sensibility and a love of colour.

‘There is a wide range of subject matter and technique in this exhibition as I am inspired by lots of things! Faces, rockpools, fruit in a bowl; they all grab me and then the question is, what technique will be the best to portray them? And then, how about trying to investigate the same subject in a different medium or in a more abstracted way? So many possibilities! So here you will find collage, oil on canvas, monoprint, woodcut prints, ink with watercolour and charcoal drawings with acrylic.
The choice of colour pallette and the composition can help to convey different moods, from limited Old Master colours to the loud primaries; from a zoomed- in perspective to a grand open space. I also try not to be overly concerned with detail so as to encourage the viewer to form their own feelings and interpretations about what they are seeing.’
Though originally from New York, Margo has spent her adult life in her adopted city of London. Following a career as a musician, songwriter and actress, she has finally found art to be the perfect means of expression. She studies at Putney School of Art and recently Morley College and for the past thirteen years has been passionate about making art. Margo has shown her work at Putney School of Art, Sprout Arts, Wandsworth Artists Open House, Jonaquest Art, Urban Art Fair, Uthink Festival, Streatham Art23 and Parsons Green Art Festival. Her ‘Tooting Bec’ limited edition prints were acquired by London Transport Museum and ‘Beach at Carbis Bay’ was longlisted for the Jacksons Painting Prize 2021. Her painting ‘Big Fruit at Night’ was included in the Mall Galleries’ Figurative Art Now exhibition 2021.
