REDWING

Arts and Community Hub

 

Peerless Land. Woodcut. Peter Fox 

Redwing is a not-for-profit social enterprise which aims to represent art and artists excluded from the mainstream commercial art world. Redwing was founded by the artists Peter Fox and Roselyne Williams and has been popping up in Penzance, Cornwall since 2011.

Redwing's arts and community hub is at 36A Market Jew Street, Penzance, Cornwall.

At Redwing there are two floors of exhibition, performance and rehearsal space, an open access non-toxic printmaking and book arts studio, affordable artist's studios, a second-hand book shop and Cafe de Cuba, a vegan Cuban coffee shop.

                                  

Work by David Axtell, Paul Broad, Lucy Brown, Marc Craig, Peter Fox, Rebecca Jazwinder-Leest,  John Sheehy, Alan Streets and more.

IMOGEN ALLEN Living Roots 

 


The debut solo exhibition by nineteen year old artist Imogen Allen. The title of the show is 'Living Roots.' This is a phrase in a Seamus Heaney poem, titled 'Digging.' For Imogen, this phrase seems to encapsulate a running theme throughout the works she has chosen. This theme is broadly the imagination, and the roots of thoughts, emotions and perceptions within the mind. Our internal, physiological states as human beings fascinates Imogen, and how painting can bridge the gap between the internal and the external even more so.
Essentially, the paintings aim to express something primal about humanity and experience which is therefore universal. 
So, living roots questions in various ways 'what are we?,' and perhaps even 'where do we come from?'
