    Caroline Walker

    Caroline Walker

    Talk Art is back for SEASON 13!!!! Woohooo!!!
    We meet leading artist Caroline Walker.
    Walker’s paintings reveal the diverse social, cultural and economic experiences of women living in contemporary society. Drawing on her own photographic source material, Walker provides a unique window into the everyday lives of women. 
    Blurring the boundary between objectivity and lived experience, Walker highlights often overlooked jobs performed by women and the psychologically charged spaces they inhabit. Walker explains: “The subject of my paintings in its broadest sense is women’s experience, whether that is the imagined interior life of a glimpsed shop worker, a closely observed portrayal of my mother working in the family home, or women I’ve had the privilege of spending time with in their place of work. From the anonymous to the highly personal, what links all these subjects is an investigation of an experience which is specifically female.”
    Caroline Walker was born in 1982 in Dunfermline, Scotland. She lives and works in London.
    Blurring the boundary between objectivity and lived experience, the artist highlights often overlooked jobs performed by women and the psychologically charged spaces they inhabit.
    Previously encompassing locations such as Los Angeles, Palm Springs and the UK, Walker’s scenes hint at the complexity of her subjects’ lives whilst completely avoiding narrative resolution. Recent works have seen Walker cast her eye to her immediate surroundings in East London, reflecting on her wider community and the significance of encounters with anonymous individuals who are nevertheless integral to our daily existence. Often exploring the notion of ‘women’s work’, the artist captures specific spaces such as pharmacies, tailors, beauty salons, laboratories, bathhouses and modernist apartments.
    Walker presented a new body of large-scale paintings at the historic Fitzrovia Chapel in February 2022. The works were created following her residency at University College Hospital's maternity wing, during which the artist shadowed female midwives, nurses, doctors and cleaners. Sketches from the series were displayed by UCLH Arts at Street Gallery, London and the project was accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.Examples will also be included as part of a two-person presentation with Laura Knight at Nottingham Castle in March 2022.
    KM21, The Hague hosted ‘Windows’, a significant solo exhibition of the artist’s work in August 2021. An expansive show of Walker’s preparatory studies and large-scale paintings titled ‘Women’s Work’ opened in May 2021 at Midlands Art Centre (MAC), Birmingham, UK. She features in the Hayward Gallery touring exhibition ‘British Art Show 9’ in 2022. Walker’s first solo show at Stephen Friedman Gallery, London will take place in April 2022, focussing on the artist’s sister-in-law Lisa and her experience of motherhood. 
    Walker obtained an MA in painting from Royal College of Art, London in 2009 and a BA (Hons) from Glasgow School of Art in 2004. Walker is also represented by GRIMM, Amsterdam / New York and Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh.

    Hew Locke

    Hew Locke

    Talk Art series 13 continues!!! We meet British sculptor and contemporary visual artist Hew Locke. The artist shares the inspiration behind his decades of work and reflects on the process of making his new and exciting large-scale installation 2022 Tate Britain Commission, The Procession.
    A procession is part and parcel of the cycle of life; people gather and move together to celebrate, worship, protest, mourn, escape or even to better themselves. This is the heart of this ambitious new project. The Procession invites visitors to ‘reflect on the cycles of history, and the ebb and flow of cultures, people and finance and power.’ Tate Britain’s founder was art lover and sugar refining magnate Henry Tate. In the installation Locke says he ‘makes links with the historical after-effects of the sugar business, almost drawing out of the walls of the building,’ also revisiting his artistic journey so far, including for example work with statues, share certificates, cardboard, rising sea levels, Carnival and the military.
    Throughout, visitors will see figures who travel through space and time. Here, they carry historical and cultural baggage, from evidence of global financial and violent colonial control embellished on their clothes and banners, alongside powerful images of some of the disappearing colonial architecture of Locke’s childhood in Guyana.
    The installation takes inspiration from real events and histories but overall, the figures invite us to walk alongside them, into an enlarged vision of an imagined future.
    "What I try to do in my work is mix ideas of attraction and ideas of discomfort – colourful and attractive, but strangely, scarily surreal at the same time." Hew Locke.
    Locke was born in Edinburgh, UK, in 1959; lived from 1966 to 1980 in Georgetown, Guyana; and is currently based in London.  He obtained a B.A. Fine Art in Falmouth (1988) and an M.A. Sculpture at the Royal College of Art, London (1994). In 2000 he won both a Paul Hamlyn Award and an East International Award.
    His work is represented in many collections including those of the The Government Art Collection, The Pérez Art Museum Miami, The Tate Gallery, The Arts Council of England, The National Trust, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, The Brooklyn Museum, New York, 21c, The New Art Gallery Walsall, The Victoria & Albert Museum, The Imperial War Museum, The British Museum and The Henry Moore Institute, Leeds.
    Follow @HewDJLocke on Instagram and visit his official website: http://www.hewlocke.net/
    Visit his galleries PPOW Gallery in New York and Hales Gallery in London. Learn more about his new installation at Tate, it's free to visit until 22nd January 2023: https://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-britain/hew-locke

    Tracey Emin CBE

    Tracey Emin CBE

    Talk Art season 13 continues with an art icon!!! We meet leading artist Tracey Emin to discuss her return to her hometown of Margate, her new art school, her current solo exhibition in the town's Carl Freedman Gallery as well as a further new solo show in Edinburgh at Jupiter Artland.
    'A Journey To Death' is a comprehensive solo exhibition of new prints, large-scale monotypes and bronze sculptures. The show runs until 19th June 2022 and has been widely critically acclaimed. Free entry, and we strongly recommend visiting Margate for this extraordinary exhibition of new works.
     
    Tracey Emin’s first Scottish show since 2008, 'I Lay Here For You' opens on 28th May and runs until 2nd October. It offers an intimate encounter with love and hope set against the domestic architecture and informal woodland of Jupiter Artland. Imbued with connotations of both warmth and vulnerability, resonating with Tracey Emin’s belief of the ‘personal as political’ the exhibition will feature brand new work by the artist reflecting on the possibility of love after hardship.
    Tracey Emin’s participation in Jupiter Artland’s 2022 season begins with the unveiling I Lay Here For You, a six metre bronze sited personally by the artist in an old-growth beech grove. Larger than life, powerful and at ease, the sculpture presents a radically different view of woman’s place in nature, as well as creating a dialogue with the new work presented by the artist across Jupiter’s indoor gallery spaces.
    Tracey Emin, CBE, RA is a British artist known for her autobiographical and confessional artwork. Emin represented Great Britain at the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007 and was appointed Professor of Drawing at the Royal Academy of Arts, London in 2011. She was awarded the honour of Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire for her contributions to the visual arts in 2012. Tracey Emin’s art is one of disclosure, using her life events as inspiration for works ranging from painting, drawing, video and installation, to photography, needlework and sculpture.
    Emin reveals her hopes, humiliations, failures and successes in candid and, at times, excoriating work that is frequently both tragic and humorous. In 2020, a major solo exhibition entitled The Loneliness of the Soul, opened at the Royal Academy of Arts, London. The exhibition then toured to the new Munch Museum, Oslo in Summer 2021 to critical acclaim. This summer, Emin will unveil her largest artwork to date, The Mother, a permanent public commission for Oslo’s Museum Island. I Lay Here for You at Jupiter Artland will be Tracey Emin’s first solo exhibition in Scotland since her 2008 major retrospective at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh.
    Tracey Emin was born in 1963 in London. She currently lives and works between London, the South of France, and Margate, UK.

    Mary Moore & Hannah Higham on Henry Moore, presented by BMW

    Mary Moore & Hannah Higham on Henry Moore, presented by BMW

    Talk Art SPECIAL EPISODE!!!! We travel to Somerset to have an exclusive 5am visit to Stonehenge and an art adventure to Hauser & Wirth in Bruton. We visit Henry Moore's exhibition 'Sharing Form' for a guided tour with the artist's daughter Mary Moore and curator Hannah Higham. Hauser and Wirth Somerset present a comprehensive survey spanning six decades extends across all five gallery spaces, in addition to an open-air presentation of seminal works including: ‘The Arch’ (1963/69), ‘Large Interior Form’ (1953 – 1954) and ‘Locking Piece’ (1962 – 1963).
    The exhibition takes as its starting point the artist’s early fascination with the Neolithic site of Stonehenge, which Moore first encountered the prehistoric monuments under the moonlight as a young man in 1921, fifty-two years later he embarked on a series of lithographs on the subject. Moore was fascinated by the relationship between the towering masses of ancient stone, their size and siting in the landscape, and the mysterious ‘depths and distances’ evoked on his returning visits. For Moore, the power and intensity of such large forms set against land and sky precipitated career-long investigations into scale, material and volume and the juxtaposition of art and nature, which are presented throughout the exhibition.
    Alongside Moore’s most celebrated works, the viewer is immersed in a deeply personal selection of artworks and objects curated by Mary Moore, set within the centre of the exhibition. The collection contains almost 100 items from her father’s studio and home, providing an insight into the working life of the sculptor and intimate memories she holds through these objects. The unique experience brings together Moore’s visual library and the vocabulary of ideas that he developed during his working life. The exhibition was organised with support from the Henry Moore Foundation.

    Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, presented by BMW

    Talk Art SPECIAL EPISODE!!!! This week we talk to Rafael Lozano-Hemmer to discuss his new collaboration with Superblue (@superblue.art) and BMW i, “Pulse Topology” presented on the occasion of this year’s Art Basel (@artbasel). The participatory artwork is composed of 6.000 lightbulbs, suspended from the ceiling at different heights, that glimmer to the heartbeat of visitors detected by custom-made pulse sensors.
    The presentation is inspired by a shared vision for a sustainable future, and a desire to create experiences for retreat, reflection, joy, and social connection. Following an inspiring dialogue with BMW engineers and designers, Lozano-Hemmer’s team will use the same technology as in “Pulse Topology” to activate the BMW i7’s interior with passengers' heartbeats. This intervention can be seen as an extension of the i7’s use of light and new technology to emphasize the human-centric design of the new BMW i7.
    Stay tuned to see this immersive experience come to life.
    Follow @lozanohemmer on instagram to see more of his work. #PulseTopology #ThisIsForwardism

Met you guys through listening to Homo Sapiens and LOVED it!
I’ve been addicted to your podcast ever since.

Listen to you on my long lockdown dog walks over here in Burgundy France.
Wow you really hold my attention for what is a pretty long interview. You are so clever, such fun and I always take a look at the guests as I’m listening to get more info.
I’ve just ordered my 8 year old nephew (very talented) one of Nathan Bowens signed original pieces to inspire him in his love of art. I am going to go to Paris and see Mandy El-Sayegh’s exhibition in the Autumn
