Artworks inspired by the theme 50:50 will feature in an exciting new exhibition by more than 30 members of the East Finchley Open Artists (EFOA) at The Highgate Gallery.
The exhibition features paintings, original prints, photographs and wall-mounted three-dimensional work including textiles and ceramics that interpret the theme 50:50 in a variety of ways, from half-and-half, positive/negative, or literally 50x50cm square.
All of the artists have prepared new works especially for the exhibition. Among them, David Waller explores the idea of twins in a large wall-hung mixed media piece; Christine Watson focuses on the simplicity of the rise and fall of steps at Trajan’s Market in her mezzotint; Cathy Burkinshaw presents a split-screen take on nature in her mixed media work Portobello Road; and photographer Peter Kyte juxtaposes two angled facades of buildings in Sheffield.
Founded in 2004, East Finchley Open Artists is a group of artists and craftspeople - including painters, printers, photographers, ceramicists, glass makers, jewellers, sculptors, textile artists and basket makers - ranging from those who are starting out in their creative careers to well-established professional artists and lecturers. Every summer the EFOA hosts Open House weekends, as well as other public events throughout the year.
