DJ Selections - Long and Winding Road

How far away is Norfolk? A long and winding way.

Popped down to Norwich to meet artist Olivia Jeffries and pick up a consignment of her beautiful drawings for the gallery. www.duckettandjeffreys.com. Similarity in name a pure coincidence.

Olivia’s work is being shown in our DJ selections where we showcase print, drawings, illustrations and all things funky.

Did a bit of an extended detour on the way back to visit Cromer - chips, peas, sea, sand - bliss.

On the way down stopped in at the Ropewalk Gallery where they had a great touring show of Jake and Dinos Chapman’s etchings, ‘My Giant Colouring book.’ Loosely based on dot-dot drawings from children’s colouring books, these etchings were photo etched onto copper plates. Dinos comments that they “are about how wrong you could make an image. How you could use nodal points and ignore them at the same time.”

In contrast was Dionne Swift’s exhibition, “New Grounds” which included collagraphic prints on industrial felt. A bit of a Prunella Clough moment.

Andreas Rüthi - Double Page Paintings

Only a few days before the launch of our second show, 'Double Page Paintings' by Andreas Rüthi we were missing both an artist and artwork. Andreas is stranded on a beach in Australia (volcanic ash problem), awaiting a flight back to the UK. BUT thanks to the amazing professionalism of Andreas and his wife Helen Sear, we now have a super body of art, delivered from Wales via Leeds and to Malton.

Getting There - The Very First Hang

Sally Taylor

Mouths with Triangles
11th March – 24th April 2010

Already acknowledged for her contribution to contemporary drawing practice, with work selected in 2004 and again in 2009 for the Jerwood Drawing Prize, Sally Taylor’s exhibition, ‘Mouths and Triangles,’ opens an exciting programme of solo shows at Duckett and Jeffreys Gallery.

A considered and yet intuitive approach to mark making results in a highly personal visual language which communicates directly with the viewer. Taylor’s use of her body within these drawings is also apparent, bridging the imagination and resultant image, with gestural mark making acting as a reminder of the importance of physicality in the daily act of
