Wondrous Boat Ride: Solo Show by Everly Dark

Posted in events, Triple S Gallery, Wondrous Boat Ride with tags , , , , , on February 12, 2010 by jerforceone

OPENING NIGHT 18th FEB 7-9PM **** ALL WELCOME****

Beautiful, morbid and touched with an aching sense of innocence, Everly Dark’s phantasmagorical paintings weave a magical wonderland of bleeding hearts, puking rainbows, belching stars and an abundance of weird and wonderful characters.

Formerly known as Dead Girl, artist Everly Dark has always felt an outsider. To cope with her unease and isolation, she has found inspiration in anything unconventionally beautiful and her paintings are portals to a dark, dream-like world where anything is possible and time stands still.

Everly Dark’s Solo show ‘The Wondrous Boat Ride’ is at Triple S Gallery from 18th to 28th February 2010. Gallery open Wed to Sun from 10 AM.

Triple S Gallery, 200 North Street, Bedminster, Bristol

’10 Point Plan’

Posted in 10 point plan, events, Triple S Gallery with tags , , , , , on February 2, 2010 by jerforceone

Opening Night (Sponsored by Spotted Cow) for 10 Point Plan, solo show by H.Ren 4th february 7-9pm at Triple S Gallery.
**10 POINT PLAN: 4th February to 14th February**

Through painting, the quaintrelle H.Ren formalises her interest in the dichotomy between the numinous and the authentic.

Inspired by the tenacity of thoughts and daydreams; magic and maths; time travel; journeys into the micro world; or the universal in the particular, the painter H.Ren structures each series of work to encapsulate discoveries into the unknown.

Occasionally this crusade spills off the canvas becoming performance art or sculpture.

During 10 Point Plan, H.Ren will exhibit examples from the painting series Module Loop Proceed, new works in oil paint and will deliver a series of live performances.

10 POINT PLAN runs at Triple S Gallery from 4th February to 14th February 2010 with the following events during that time:

Thursday 4th February 7-9pm
Opening night and Live Self Portrait Red

Cut the Nose off the Dog !…

Posted in Cut the nose off the Dog, Triple S Gallery with tags , , , , , on January 29, 2010 by jerforceone

Thursday night i took part in a crazy (drunken) drawing game at the Triple ‘S’ Gallery !…

It was hosted by D*FROST who have their work on show in the gallery at the moment !…

Any way the game goes like this … One person starts the game off by drawing something (and it could be anything) and numbers it  #1 then that same person draws something that puts drawing number #1 in peril and numbers  that drawing number #2 !….

(i.e.  no. #1 is a Dog and the dog is put in peril by no.#2 A 10 Ton weight about to drop on it !…)

Then the next player has to draw something that will divert , prevent or avoid the peril and number it  #3  (i.e. a flock of birds grab the 10 ton weight and fly off !…) then the next player  has to draw something that puts  no. #1 back into peril  and so on and so on ,numbering each picture as they go !…

if the game ends on a odd number then the thing (number 1) that was in peril is saved , but if it ends on an even number the thing (number 1) dies !…

Here’s some photo’s of the event  !…

Here the finished games and the stories to go with them !…

After a 10 year abscence from the South Bristol art scene, D*FROST returns. Bringing back together Jef Row and Andrew Stott in a show celebrating old and new work with new perspectives on techniques and mediums.

D*VOLVE includes the first artwork they made in 1997 for the exhibition ‘Sole’ at Eat the Beat record shop, original fridge doors painted between 2000 and the present day as well as new large scale collaborative work. Their social/political commentary on consumerism and waste often poses questions and provokes thought. As the pair say, “we are compelled to paint, as artists we feel we are beholden to make commentary on what’s happening around us … by whatever means”
