Specialist Auctioneers 25 Blythe Road will be hosting an exhibition entitled ‘Moved’ featuring the work of gifted artists from James Deighton & Co transport company to raise funds and awareness for Glass Door Homeless Charity.
James Deighton & Co specialises in the movement and storage of antiques and works of art. In a high ratio of gifted artists to art movers; a painter, two photographers and sculptor, all part of the Deighton team, will be exhibiting their own art works from small-scale sculptures to substantial oil paintings.
The artists include Paul James, a photographer whose whimsical images of trees are a meditation on the natural world and its transience. Neil Atkinson's photographs explore the interaction between strangers during the unavoidable experience of 'intimate distance’ during rush hour on the tube. Henry Hoffman, a painter, uses gestural mark-making and a playful approach to the application of oil paint to convey dialogues between people in a vibrant expressionist style. Sam Meredith is a sculptor of colourful tactile sculptural objects made out of cast resins, some displayed as wall installations, others as smaller pieces to stand on shelves or plinths.
The Private View for the Exhibition takes place on 19th February from 6.30-8.30pm. Tickets are on our website or Eventbrite at £11.17 each, with proceeds going to Glass Door.
