NEST
THOMAS LANGLEY

4 May - 29 June 2024

Main Space, Liminal Gallery,

34 Fort Hill, Margate, CT9 1HD

Through the lens of painting and drawing, Thomas Langley's practice is deeply concerned with the fundamental mechanics of image creation, manifesting in pulsating rhythmic compositions. The foundation of this body of work lies in traps, nests, and vessels, serving as anchors for concepts of place, home and travel. Langley imparts permanence to these temporal structures through a sculpted and almost drawn approach to painting, with thick impasto application.

THERE'S BEEN A MURDER
FLORA BRADWELL

6  May - 16 June 2024

Online Solo Exhibition

In the ever growing series 'There's Been A Murder' Flora Bradwell obsessively paints crow after individual crow. These corvids: lurking and leering from the canvas are sometimes barely even dry when they are then obliterated with paint and pattern: smeared over with translucent acrylic; blotted out with unrelenting squiggles and stripes. Never far from an archway and a wailing sphere or two, it is as if these harbingers of doom or magik, whichever way you look at them, need to be rubbed away and silenced.

The Cupboard, Liminal Gallery

34 Fort Hill, Margate, CT9 1HD

‘It gathered here’ is a solo exhibition by Ramsgate-based artist Louise Frances Smith and presents a series of site specific sculptures. Playing with scale, the organic, body-like forms appear to be engulfing the small space, growing, crawling and spreading around the walls - posing the question of what the repercussions of human intervention is on our fragile coastal ecosystems, hiding behind the door of The Cupboard.

TURNER'S FEMALE CONTEMPORARIES
MERCEDES WORKMAN

18 November  2023 - 10 February 2024

The Cupboard, Liminal Gallery

34 Fort Hill, Margate, CT9 1HD

‘Turner's Female Contemporaries’ presents a meticulously crafted and entirely tiled space, unveiling the faces of female artists who have long been overlooked by history, each of whom were creating their own work during J. M. W. Turner’s lifetime. Mercedes Workman's installation serves as a poignant reminder of the many talented women artists who have, for the most part, been denied the recognition they rightfully deserved. This exhibition shines a much-needed spotlight on their remarkable contributions to the art world and seeks to rectify the historical omission.
