Born in 1922, Albert ‘Bert’ Irvin studied fine art at Northampton between 1940-41. He then served as a navigator in the Royal Air force, resuming his studies at Goldsmiths College London from 1946 to 1950, where he later taught between 1962 and 1983. Bert’s first solo exhibition was held in London in 1960 and a major retrospective of his work was held at the Serpentine Gallery in 1990. Bert’s highly coloured works are fresh and full of energy. A group of his large canvases are currently on show at Tate Britain.

Jodie_Carey_Pumphouse_Gallery_MG_0006x600Jodie Carey ‘Somewhere Nowhere’ – 20 May – 19 June 2011

View gallery

Jodie Carey’s solo show, ‘Somewhere, Nowhere’ presents the results of the first Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea/Chelsea Arts Club Trust Studio Award alongside new work made for Pump House Gallery.

‘Somewhere, Nowhere’ centres around ideas of time, memory and materiality. The focus is on a transitory, ephemeral and corporeal beauty, evoking notions of time passing, memories fading, absence and loss. Materials such as blood, bone and ash become pigments that stain the floor and mark the walls.
