About

It is not often I feel moved to write something about a group of outgoing artists from The Hepsibah Gallery but in this case I will make an exception because I cannot let this go without remarking how refreshing it is to show an 'honest' exhibition. Three mature students some way through their postgrad at Hertfordshire booked the gallery for a 3 way show. Their work was varied in style and medium. They met with a remarkable response in the gallery not frankly because of their work but because of their attitude to their work. The work on the walls in textile, painting and collage was formal and accomplished and as expected went down well in this small gallery in West London, but their conversation opened up more interesting topics. They talked about the college expectation to make conceptual art and although the pieces on the wall could not be considered radical their thoughts and concepts and attitude to their art was moving, brave and lateral. For a group of people who had seen it,read it, and bought the t shirt in the heyday of conceptual art in their youth - their work and concepts were inspirational. I would bet half of west London is finding inspiration from the music of Arvo Part inspired by Dick Barnard, others seeing in the stuff they collect the wonder of collage inspired by Kim Logan and more going home and remembering Laura Pymers's trapped resin and her theories of 'hiding' - I know I shall remember these cerebral, thoughtful, exciting artists and will be watching them for what they make of these interesting concepts in the future.
