28th of January – 14th of February 2015
Curated by Charlotte Meddings.
Lacey Contemporary is proud to present a collection of new works by artists Arthur Lanyon, Sarah Shaw, Sadie Weis and Tahnee Lonsdale, marking the first in a series of fascinating group shows scheduled for the gallery in 2015.
Inspired by the word Wanderlust, the four artists explore both physical and spiritual journeys. The collection of paintings, sculptures and installation are an invitation to join them on their visual quest.
Sarah Shaw graduated from Falmouth College of Art in 2001 with a first class honours degree in Fine Art. Sarah has been shortlisted for both the Saatchi and Beers-lambert competitions and was a finalist in the National Open Art Competition. In 2014 her work ‘Hearthold’ was selected for the prestigious Threadneedle Prize at the Mall galleries, London. Her work resides in many private collections, most notably Rolling Stone’s Ronnie Wood.
Tahnee Lonsdale completed her Foundation and BA at Byam Shaw school of art in 2007. She has been shortlisted for a number of awards, making the final for 100 Painters of Tomorrow and shortlisted for The Dazed and Confused Emerging Artist Award at Whitechapel gallery. In 2013 Tahnee was selected by Saatchi Online Curator Rebecca Wilson, as one of the ’12 Artists to Invest in Now’.
Arthur Lanyon, born Leicester, 1985 descends from a well-known painting dynasty with his father the eminent artist Matthew Lanyon, and Grandfather the late great Peter Lanyon. He received his BA in Fine Art from Cardiff School of Art and Design and now works from his studio in Cornwall.
Sadie Weis is a multi-media artist based in Berlin. She has exhibited extensively in London, New York, and Berlin since graduating from the University of Kansas in painting, in 2005. For Wanderlust, Sadie will be using sculpture, installation, painting and printmaking to transform the lower ground floor of Lacey Contemporary into a fantastical new world.
