Rob Ryan was born in Cyprus in 1962 and studied at Trent Polytechnic and the Royal College of Art. His much sought after work is painstakingly created by hand cutting delicate papers and these intricate works are either exhibited in paper cut form or developed as limited edition screen-prints, cards, books and other items, some of which will be shown in this small display.

JOAN BROSSA / ANTONI TAPIES - Poems from the Catalan

Blenheim Walk

7 January - 31 January

Poems from the Catalan is an exhibition of avant-garde poetry and art inspired by 30 years of political oppression in the Catalan region of Spain, focusing on the collaborative work of Barcelona-born poet Joan Brossa (1919-1998) and artists Antoni Tapies (b.1923), which they produced in the early 1970s as a response to General Franco's Nationalist regime in Spain. This exhibition reflects their artistic and political concerns and they remain important figures in 20th century art, each now represented by their own Foundation in Barcelona.

Shown with the assistance of the Hatton Gallery, University of Newcastle.

"We are at times too ready to believe that the present is the only possible state of things." (Marcel Proust)

To me, a painting is a document of undecidedness and possiblity. Its objecthood (material) and otherness (representation) allow for a perpetual to-ing and fro-ing between what is and what might be/what has been.
