Artists, Statements and Events

Fanchon Fröhlich

Venue/Event; Gallery 1:
" Beryl Bainbridge, a friendship"
18.09.2010 - 29.09.2010

"This exhibition is to commemorate Beryl Bainbridge in paintings and drawings of her, her husband and her babies. Also, featuring drawings of my husband, Herbert Fröhlich and a painting of myself in the 'Beryl period'. We were a group of people, Beryl Bainbridge, I - a philosopher from Oxford and later an abstract painter, her husband - Austin Davis, a painter who has just done a huge painting of "Dejeune sur l'herbe" (...) and my husband Herbert, Professor of Theoretical Physics. (...)” For 'All our yesterdays'.
Fanchon Fröhlich (nee Angst) was a philosophy student at the University of Chicago, where she worked with Rudolf Carnap (formerly of Vienna, and the founder of the Vienna Circle) and Oxford, where she studied with Sir Prof. Peter Strawson, doing a doctorate in Primary and Secondary Qualities. She studied at Liverpool College of Art, then moved to St Ives to work with Peter Lanyon. Later she travelled to Paris where she worked with the sculptor Szabo and finally studied at Stanley William Hayter's etching atelier, Atelier 17, all of the time preserving her faith in Abstract Expressionism. Her artwork unites philosophy of science and art.

Venue /Events: Gallery 2:
“ Capturing Threads of Light”
18.09.2010 - 29.09.2010
“ Meet me at Sunset 2010 “
06.11.2010 - 30.11.2010

“Capturing threads of Light”, is a revelation of colour vibration and light filtering screens that welcome you to take a journey of meditation and peace. Abstract painting and site specific installation.
Artist and curator born in Romania, and based in Liverpool. Since an early age, Nicole Bartos (Maria-Nicoleta Bartos), has experienced art in many different forms with great dedication and a thirst for discovery and experiment. Her best artistic achievements are in the field of mixed media and experimental art ("Structures and Geometries" - experimental research), site specific installation, abstract painting, experimental drawing, photography and ceramics sculpture.

"The rhythm and vibration of my work is determined by the levels of energy and the waves of thought. By allowing space, energy and irrational expressions, of the subconscious mind, to take form through the tip of each brush or painting knife, meditation follows; I relax and certainly heal. These exercises coming from an awareness or 'mimicry' of a certain feeling are mostly performed in silence or, accompanied by classical music. (…) I am fascinated by abstract art as I acknowledge it as a mirror expression or open door towards the inner and higher self of the artist. An amazing experience to engage into and reflect on, wonder…"

Gisele Nzolameso

Venue/Event; Gallery 2:
“ Left To Die“
16.10.2010 - 27.10.2010

Gisèle Nzolameso is a Congolese born and a UK based contemporary visual artist. Her practice explores the themes of identity, gender, poverty, exploitation and genocide.
She invites her audience to confront rather than escape the reality of socio-political issues.
In an ambiguous manner at times and other times in a more direct style of representation, she aims to give the viewers subject for thought and discussion. Gisèle Nzolameso works in a wide variety of media including, but not limited to, digital photography, collage, clay, photo etching and time based media.

“Left to Die” - Video Installation Double Screen.
The video screens represent a transparent window onto the world of a captive character. As a matter of course, Gisèle Nzolameso seeks to implicate the viewer with moving and intrusive imagery while stressing universal values and emotions: pain, compassion, distress, hope, altruism, exploitation, fear, greed and courage.The intriguing performances address the notion of "one's body is one's property" in an environment where the lack of law and order makes the concepts of identity, worth, ownership and privacy obsolete.

Christopher Moutoh

Venue/Event: Gallery 2:
“ Conscious Nature“
02.10.2010 - 14.10.2010

I specialize in painting expressive art as well as portraiture, using my personal identity and emotions as a tool for subject. The media I use vary from ink to graphite and biro.
The topic I am currently focusing on is dreams and thoughts. What they mean to me and how they effect me as a person. "Art is a way I could express myself, how I am feeling and my likes and dislikes from pen to paper."
“ Chris Muotoh is a talented young artist, who enthuses in exploring the ideas of ‘dream’ and ‘nightmare’. A cycle of mixed media painting on wood will introduce you to details from the artists’ dreaming

Kaety Moore


Venue/Event: Gallery 1
“ Mucky Daughters”
02.10.2010 - 14.10.2010

Kaety Moore's background is in fine art, music and writing. Her work weaves in and out of drawing, movement and song.
It reflects emotional and physical landscapes and is inspired by storytelling, mythology and nature. Kaety works with soft sculpture, installation and performance to explore political questions posed by
feminism, motherhood and the process of making/caring.

Jenny Wynne

Venue/Event: Gallery 1
“ Mucky Daughters “
02.10.2010 - 14.10.2010

Jenny Wynne is a painter, specialising in oils whose working practise is strongly underpinned by drawing.

My work is a combination of two styles, the hyper-real and a more spontaneous and gestural way of mark making, into finished images that hint at the mechanics and materials of workmanship.
Drawing feels very physical, re-tracing the body as an image. The movements of a charcoal line follow the pits, pores, swell, blush and life of the human anatomy. Mud as paint is like flesh- it has a rich and tactile quality and is a perfect material to suggest the human form. It is the uniqueness of every mark and of every person represented as visual image which fascinates me- it is like a fingerprint.
‘ Mucky Daughters’
“ Remnants from a transient art work along the Mersey. The silt of the river describes the encounters between the artists and the environment.
Kaety Moore and Jenny Wynne are two artists connected by the Mersey estuary. They collaborate in this temporary work which is a departure from their usual practices. Wynne typically works with oil paint and Moore with calico and cotton. ‘Mucky Daughters’ is the name of a poem by Moore, which is a call to the wild; and an opportunity for both artists to get out of the studio and play with their work. They substitute the matter of paint with mud and material with sand. Mucky is wild, free, unconfined and an exploration of childbirth, motherhood and belief.” jennywynne@yahoo.co.uk

Ada Villa
Venue/Event: Gallery 1
“ Natures”
16th Oct - 27th Oct 2010


Ada Villa, Italian artist based in Pescara, combines painting with creative thought and writing. She has collaborated with artist and curator Nicole Bartos during 2008 Liverpool Biennial. This time she will back to exhibit her paintings through Gallery4allarts, as part of \ "Meet me at Sunset 2010\" project.

Ada has made Abruzzo her adopted country. For many years, she travelled around the world (Europe, South America and Canada), but it was only in the Abruzzo countryside that she found the serenity that permitted her to devote herself entirely to painting.” Ada has exhibited widely through many group and solo exhibitions in countries such as: Italy (Pescara, Florence, Chieti, Ferrara, Pesaro, Francavilla al Mare, Lazio and Molise, Frisa, Perugia (“The 8th Award Biennial of Contemporary Art Torre Strozzi”), etc; Holland, (Deen Hag), UK (Liverpool), France (Paris) and has also, participated as a poet to a variety of art and poetry related events.

The series are called 'Natures' and this wants to represent both the time passing, leaving signs on the bodies, in the souls and environment.

“The man attacks the nature and the nature attacks the man.”
This in synthesis is the thought that the artist wants to communicate through her paintings.
You imagine that don't reveal only the unstoppable one to flow some time, the to wither of the youth or of the beauty, but they represent more and more also the deep connection among the great tied up tragedies to the frequent cataclysms and the environmental disasters caused by the man. The black tide caused by the oil losses or the environmental pollution and the toxic refusals by a side and the floods, the fires, the droughts, the volcanoes in eruption from the other, are two faces of the same medal. This pain, this incapability to understand and to justify such condition, materializes him through the pictorial work of Ada Villa that has wanted not by chance to call 'Nature' this series of works, to lines also hard, where the unconditional love for the nature reveals him and manifests him through the colour and the hope.'
