Time and Place exhibition

The first collaborative exhibition between Jo and Cathy Faithfull

So far this summer we have seen temperatures never experienced before in the UK with wildfires burning homes to the ground. The clock is ticking and the need to act and slow down the accelerating pace of climate change is more urgent now than ever. Changing the fundamental forces of nature is an impossible task but by modifying the way we all consider the planet is a step in the right direction.

In this first collaborative exhibition Cathy and I use a myriad of discarded, dismantled time-pieces that allows the viewer space for their own thoughts on the past, present and future. Thousands of jigsaw pieces highlight the fractured nature of the globe, the fragment pieces hanging in the air and the numerous attempts to reunite the pieces accentuates the enormity of the task ahead. The burnt, blackened remnants of personal items belonging to the artists are powerful reminders of what could become of our everyday possessions.

The exhibition does not solely focus on the fragility of the planet. There are touches that proffer hope to the visitor. ‘Globe of Nations’ is a powerful piece that sees people from all over the world coming together sitting side by side in an outward facing position. ‘Earth from Space’, a giant globe with images taken from space reminds us how beautiful, but fragile, the planet is.

 

We look forward to hearing your feedback.

They will be on line at some point but if you are in Cambridge do drop by and take a look.

Cambridge Open Studios

I am so looking forward to opening my studios during the first two weekends of July.

Cambridge Open Studios has always been a delight for me.  It is a great opportunity to talk to customers and discuss art in general.  This year I have launched a new series of small oils on wood panels.  Some of these will be going to Cambridge Contemporary Art.

I will be open on the 3/4th and 10/11th July. See you then.

Cambridge Independent

Thank you to Cambridge Independent who asked to interview me last week. Here is the article.

Sheltered

I have been working on lots of new small oil paintings during the past two months. They will be launched at my Cambridge Open Studios during the first two weeks of July.

It is heart-warming to think of opening up the studio doors again for visitors. Open Studios is one event that I love as it provides me with the opportunity to talk about my artwork and what drives me to continue to be a professional artist.

All about sheds

I have always had a thing about sheds. They are noble, whatever the condition. My new work will include a series of 'shed work' on wood panels.

Landscape exhibition at Cambridge Contemporary Art

I have 6 oils on canvas on display at the new landscape exhibition from 27 February 2021 at Cambridge Contemporary Art. One has sold before the opening of the show but there are still 5 to choose from!

Silence at CCA

I have been enjoying painting again during the last 6 months. Covid-19 stopped us all in our tracks and I have responded by depicting scenes from the coast - where I long to be!

Some of the new oils will be available to purchase from Cambridge Contemporary Art from February 27th 2021.

Please do get in contact and tell me what you think of my new collection.
