‘PATTERN AND PLACE, a celebration of the rhythms of place’ Final Exhibition of Helen Scalway’s Residency at St George’s Arts
Private View: 6.30 – 8.30pm Tuesday 12 October 2010
Exhibition Runs from 12 – 24 October Tuesday, Wednesday 11 – 1 pm, Thursday & Friday 11 – 5pm, closed Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
Drawings celebrating the patterns and rhythms, the visual music of St George’s Church, Esher, bring Helen Scalway’s 2010 residency at St George’s Arts to a close. The artist has been investigating bringing together the contemporary and ancient in and around the building through 3d drawing, exploiting elements such as shadow and filtered light.
During the final event the early music soprano Sophia Brumfitt will interpret the drawings in sound.
Trained at Chelsea College of Art, Helen Scalway’s work has been shown in numerous exhibitions in the UK and internationally and is held in various collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Interested in space and place, in 2009 she showed in the Royal Geographical Society, London. More of her work may be seen on the V&A Museum website where she wrote an artist’s blog from 2007-2009
Sophia Brumfitt is fascinated with the connection between story telling and colour to sound and the human voice, which has led her in all her work and training. She studied voice at Dartington College of Arts and later at The Royal College of Music. The versatility and agility of her voice has enabled her to work throughout the span of Early Music, from Medieval to Early Classical, compiling and researching original programmes and as a guest soloist throughout Europe and the UK, and more recent performances of Baroque Dance and narrator for a puppet company.
