eye music, an exhibition at The Arches Courtyard Space, Blenheim Grove, featuring the work of 7 local and widely collected artists whose painterly variations and compositions employ narrative, surrealism and abstraction. The painting, drawing, ceramics and sculptural objects hang outdoors on a timber frame on wheels, staged within the brick arch intersection of the two railway lines at Peckham Rye Station.


Curated by Laura Moreton-Griffiths

Georgina Corrie | Dom Lawson | Laura Moreton-Griffiths | Laurence Noga | Tanis Shaw | Lucy Soni | Sonia Stanyard

Georgina Corrie’s wall-based ceramics explore colour, optical geometry and ornate painted planes; Dom Lawson’s sculptural objects and drawings of pipe dreams and musings build on recurrent themes of nihilism and the void; Laura Moreton-Griffiths’ drawings and objects depict surreal narratives of war; Laurence Noga’s collages and colourfield paintings investigate process, texture and surface; Lucy Soni’s paintings and sculptural objects preserve the everyday and the throw away; Sonia Stanyard’s sensual landscapes intuitively move between realism and abstraction; Tanis Shaw paints portraits of decay, melancholy and loss.

The exhibition title takes inspiration from eye music, a translation of the German word Augenmusik . Augenmusik is the visual appearance of a musical score that communicates visual symbolic meaning. All the work in this exhibition uses strong visual language akin to the effect of music on the senses and our internal perspectives; the interplay of colour in the space behind our eyes, luminosity the dark, sunlight on our eyelids, elusive memories and thoughts taking form.

Also showing the same weekends for Dulwich Open House at The Arches Studios, ceramic artists and makers: Loraine Rutt, Carolyn Tripp, Eunice di Pascale, Jane Muir, Geoff Lang, Lou Smith.
