Jealous North

30 Mar 2022 — 01 May 2022

Following the successful opening at Jealous East, we are honoured to announce that ‘THE ARCHERLEBOURGEOISMICHAELS POPESMALLHORNWILSON SHOW' is coming to Jealous North.

Offering us not one but six unique artistic worlds. From this diversity of voices, the exhibition will reveal a broad, complex vision highlighting the specific contributions of each of these creators, demonstrating an insight into particular moments of their practice. This collaborative exhibition will showcase works from Magda Archer, whose inspiration stems from a personal perspective using her practice as a memoir, documenting moments of humour and irony through her notable kitsch aesthetic as a response to everyday life. Sara Pope draws on the modern world's obsession with beauty ideals to raise questions about consumerism and the perfectionism of the female image, taking her years working in the fashion industry as a base for her striking works.
The exhibition will also explore a variety of mediums. Delphine LeBourgeois brings together; collage, pencil, watercolour and screenprinting to form parts of her detailed work littered with visual cues from Renaissance paintings to the contemporary world of comics. Sophie Smallhorn, a master of colour, expertly uses colour theory to investigate relationships with volume and proportions in her sculpture and print work.
  Historical influences of 18th Century portraiture takes prevalence in Natasha Michaels' work. Her unconventional monoprinted portraits challenge traditional conventions and genres of art. Jess Wilson uses everyday observation in her practice, continually and inquisitively exploring the world we live in to create detailed and witty screenprinted works.
The exhibition aims to present the creative process of these six artists, bringing together their various artistic languages and explorations of media. Expression is in the spotlight, offering the opportunity to understand the complex relationships with each artist and how they use their practice to project moments related to their personal and professional trajectory.
