There are a couple of great exhibitions on at the King’s Lynn Arts Centre right now by Paul Ebbens and Peter Swann, two artists with very different approaches to their work.
Paul Ebbens is a ceramic artist from King’s Lynn and this exhibition, called ‘Washed’ is full of his larger than life, vibrant and textural ceramics , many of which defy classification!
Here’s a few images of the show:
I am proud to have designed a book to accompany the exhibition, which was conceived, researched and written by my good friend Nick Sampson with the work specially shot by ace photographer Guy Rogers. You can purchase a copy for yourself or as a thoughtful gift here.
Peter Swann is well-known for his assemblage works and this exhibition has a fine selection of them on show, along with a number of other unusual items like the Memory Extractor Unit:
I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but there are a number of interactive elements included in his work that will make you smile (or more!) along with some remarkable things not usually found in art galleries.
The main thing about Peters’ work is that it is full of stories; a few convoluted tales, parodies and many implied stories that have yet to be told. If you’re lucky, you might find Peter amongst the exhibits – go on and ask him anything about what you see – like I said before, Peters’ work is full of stories and there is no better place to get them than from the source…
Both exhibitions run until Sunday September 13th so there’s still time! Go on; you won’t be disappointed!
