Penumbra \;is the inaugural art exhibition of young curatorial collective VERB. This show wi ll present a selection of 11 emerging artists&rsquo\; work that demonstrate s the beauty\, vitality and contradictions inherent within transitional sta tes. The exhibition will run from 1-18 May 2014 at A.P.T Gallery in Deptfor d\, London\, and will be followed by a publication. The public events progr amme includes tours\, artist talks\, performances\, a panel discussion and curatorial workshops for children.

Penumbra

\n

noun. \;An area in which something exists to a lesser or uncertain degree. A fringe region of half shadow. An outlying surrounding region\; a periphery.

\n
\n
\n

Penumbra \;will explor e liminality\; the moment of transition from one state to another. This unc ertain state has long been associated with danger\, but also contains the p otential for a positive transformation. Liminality has been a buzz word in the art world for years\, however its continued relevance to artists indica tes a greater importance than mere trendiness. \;

\n
\n

The artists were selected from an open call on the subject of the uncertain\, which received over 300 applications from across the UK and beyond. The current phenomenon of the young taking longer to re ach a position of stability can be seen as a defining feature of our age. E merging artists caught in this extended transitory period can offer an insi ght into the potential of uncertainty as well as its struggles. The present ed works are diverse in both materials and approach to the subject\, displa ying a multiplicity of perspectives on the in- between\; forming an intrigu ing and cohesive collection of innovative\, quality works. The show will fo cus on three strands of liminality: spacial\, temporal and transformative. However\, as befits a show centred around the &lsquo\;in-between&rsquo\; an d the ambiguous\, many works bridge the divide between these areas.

\n

Artists

\n

The artists exhibiting in \;Penumbra& nbsp\;are Megan Broadmeadow\, Anton Burdakov\, Greta Eacott\, Elizabeth Hud son\, Anna Hussey\, Lydia Julien\, Helen McGhie\, Alex McNamee\, Clare Pric e\, Collette Rayner and YuYu.

\n

A major ne w commission by internationally renowned\, London-based artist Alek sandra Mir. The project Drawing Room res ponds to the exploding energy of the fast-developing London skyline and exp lores drawing as a collective activity.

\n

Taking over the gallery as a production space\, Mir and her team of ten assistants will create a live drawing installation\, using only &lsquo\;Sha rpie&rsquo\; marker pens.  \;The work will be based on the architecture of London\, and include expansive street scenes and intimate interior view s that invite you to enter these spaces. Working directly onto a specialist canvas backdrop\, commonly used in theatre\, the resulting mural will be 4 metres high and will extend to over 24 metres in length. After completion\ , the resulting installation will remain on exhibition for an additional si x weeks.

\n

Mir says: &lsquo\;It wil l be a collective live drawing extravaganza resulting in one mural sized wo rk\, choreographed by me and performed together with a group of assistants who will be working with me in the gallery space in full public view. \ ; My objectives are to push drawing beyond the confines of the small-scale\ , manageable sheet of paper towards a larger unruly reality\; at once a sta ge set\, a choreography and a performative act. It will blend many art form s into one continuous process and activity where a lot is determined before hand\, but as much left to the energies and personalities of the people who will occupy the space and the daily goings on there.&rsquo\;

\n

Working with a team Mir seeks to foster an et hos of shared achievement while creating an analogy to the collective life of the city. The process of collaboration and the use of atypical materials &ndash\; in this case the &lsquo\;Sharpie&rsquo\; marker pen &ndash\; are similarly integral to the artist&rsquo\;s working practice. Mir has drawn w ith the &lsquo\;Sharpie&rsquo\; pen on a large scale for many years\, trans forming this popular everyday marker pen into a tool for experimentation. S he manages to achieve complex patterns and painterly effects with the fadin g marker\, creating works that are imbued with intense energy and remain a record of the physical labour required to make them.

\n

&lsquo\;I simply love the medium of drawing for its bru tal honesty&rsquo\;\, Mir says.

\n

This is Aleksandra Mir&rsquo\;s first collaborative drawing project in Lond on and one of her most ambitious drawing projects to date. For Drawing Room this is the first presentation of large-scale drawing made in situ by an a rtist.

Annely Juda Fine is will be exhibiting David Ho ckney's \;series of 16 \;iPad drawings\; The Arrival of Sp ring. These bold and striking iPad drawings have been printed on paper in a n edition of 25. A further four prints have been printed in large format an d \;mounted on dibond in an edition of 10. \;

In addition to the iPad drawings the film&n bsp\;Woldgate Woods\, November 26th \; 2010 \;will be shown: 9 digi tal videos will be shown synchronised on 9 video monitors showing a slow pr ogress through a snowy wooded landscape in East Yorkshire.

Showing on the 3rd floor gallery will be a group of charcoal drawings showing 5 seperate views:

I decided to do an arrival of sprin g in black and white (and greys) at the beginning of 2013. A change from th e color I had used in 2011. I almost gave up on them a few times\, but pers evered with them\, and finished about the end of May 2013. The Chinese say black and white contains colour\, and so it can.

\n

They are five separate views of Woldgate\, and with each one I had to wait for the change s to happen. Some were too close to the previous ones and I realised I was being impatient. I had to wait for a bigger change. I thought it was an exc iting thing to do. It made me look much harder at what I was drawing.< /span>

\n

The totems were drawn immediately on my return from my exhibition in Cologne in November 2012. I drove out on Woldgate and noticed it had been deliberately sawn through. A bit before this I was sent photographs of graf fiti that had been painted on it. Annoying but I thought the winter would t ake them away. I was at first very sad and went to bed for two days a bit d epressed by the vandalism. Then I decided to draw it. I had had a very mino r stroke that had kept me in London\, and the first drawing after it took m e two days to draw (the days are a lot shorter in November).

\n

Th e minor stroke only manifested itself in my speech. I found I couldn't fini sh sentences\, and although it came back after about a month I find now I t alk a lot less. But it did not affect my drawing\, I think it even made me concentrate more. I thought\, well I'm OK so long as I can draw\, I don't r eally need to say much anymore\; I thought\, I've said enough already.

\n

When I sent the drawings to California Gregory said straight away h e thought there was a difference he could see. Anyway all I did for the nex t six months was draw with charcoal. I made about twenty-five portrait draw ings that took two days each to do\, and kept up The Arrival of Spring draw ings\, which I was very keen to show in San Francisco in my Bigger Exhibiti on at the end of last year.

\n

The color prints are from the iPad. These were drawn in 2011 and first shown at the Royal Academy in 2012\, an d so I have made just small editions of them. Some took two or three days t o draw\, and they were all drawn knowing they would be printed bigger. They were deliberately made for printing.

Bartha Contemporary is delighted to announce the Cologn e based painter Stephan Baumkö\;tter&rsquo\;s (b.1958) fourth exhibition with the gallery. Recent paintings and works on paper sh owcase the artist&rsquo\;s continued exploration of human perception. Pleas e join us for the private view on Thursday May 8th from 6.30 to 8.30 PM.

Stephan Baumkö\;tter is one of the leading German abstract painters of his generation\, working in Cologne and teaching at the University of Arts in Bremen he has been ins trumental in establishing a contemporary discourse within a traditional med ium.

\n

The paintings shown in this exhibition at first appear monochromat ic\, slowly revealing a constantly shifting colour space\, which both expos es and in turn conceals a wide spectrum of colours. Teetering on the edge o f conscious and subconscious awareness\, these works continuously engage th e viewer and elevate the experience into an ambiguous play between the phys ical presence and the perception of colour.

\n

Carefully crafted\, Baumk&ou ml\;tter&rsquo\;s paintings tell of the artist&rsquo\;s unique ability to m odulate a painted surface that at once appear uniform and monochrome but sl owly allows the eye to perceive shifts from colour to colour. These changes yield the movement of daylight\, as altering light conditions subtlety mod ify the painting's appearance.

Recent works on paper\, here set alongside a small selection of pain tings on canvas\, expand the artist&rsquo\;s practice\, which includes work s on supports such aluminium or porcelain as well an ever increasing body o f site-specific wall-drawings. Conceived through a process characterised by a series of predetermined methods of controlled chance\, further evolving through mechanisms that underlie the creation of the artist's paintings. Hi ghly pigmented pastel paint-sticks are allowed to roll or fall over the art ist's hand. The marks left on the paper are idiosyncratic traces of this pr ocess. Set within predetermined parameters that include choice of colour\, starting point and positioning\, their intimate nature is surprisingly rais ed by the drawing's enigmatic composition and immense presence.

This exhibition aims to reveal a r elationship between paintings on canvas and drawings on paper. Two until no w largely independent bodies of work that are developed separately from eac h other. Here the two genres are for the first time considered in a unique juxtaposition that will re-examine their detached conception.
< br />Coinciding with this exhibition works by Stephan Baumkö\;tter will also be on view as part of two Group-exhi bitions in Germany:
