Exhibition - New Perspective Sally Fawkes & Richard Jackson
4th – 21st May 2017
Tuesdays – Sundays 10 am – 4 pm
When Ian James of Chapel Arts accepted an invitation to see new works on show by Sally Fawkes and Richard Jackson at Salisbury Cathedral he was intrigued to see their new work, both solo and collaborative pieces. As soon as he did, he immediately offered them a solo show in the new gallery.
Fawkes and Jackson are husband and wife, and share a large, well equipped studio in Gloucestershire. This gives rise to a fairly unique situation where both create their own individual sculptures as well as coming together to collaborate, creating pieces with a third distinct voice.
Much of Fawkes’s work starts with drawing, painting and photography of the observed world. She investigates the co-existence of the environment with human interventions and marks and is particularly interested in spaces where borders become fluid and boundaries are indistinct.
Jackson starts from a different point, thinking in 3D from the outset, with the form and its title developing from the original idea simultaneously. Once he has begun to model the piece, refinements and variations are explored by drawing.
They began collaborating in 2008, and since then collaboration has grown, becoming a more and more important part of each artists practise. They collaborate in the truest sense of the word, with both of them having input at all stages of the making of a piece. Their individual views and ways of expressing themselves bring a synergy to their collaborative artworks that are both challenging and harmonious.
Fawkes and Jackson have received awards for their work from the Arts Council, the Crafts Council and the Department of Trade and Industry and have twice won awards from The Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers for originality and talent in the use of glass as a medium of artistic expression. Their work is held in numerous public, corporate and private collections including Victoria and Albert Museum, Fitzwilliam Museum, Faringdon Collection Trust at Buscot Park and National Museums of Scotland. They have exhibited widely most recently at ‘London Art Fair’ - London, ‘Modern Masters’ - Munich International Fair, Munich, Rotterdam Contemporary Art Fair – Netherlands and Salisbury Cathedral, UK. They are independently members of the Royal British Society of Sculptors.
