The Olivier Cornet Gallery is delighted to present this two-person exhibition featuring new work by Jaki Coffey and Olivier Cornet Gallery artist Kelly Ratchford.
Jam havoc is a two-person show featuring work from Jaki Coffey and Olivier Cornet Gallery artist Kelly Ratchford.
Coffey creates playful pieces that celebrate personal narratives with careful consideration to the materials used. The work in this exhibition is a record of the artist’s daughter attacking glorious blocks of butter while quietly leaving her marks as ephemeral graffiti around the home.
Mark making is also a significant aspect to Ratchford’s paintings. Simple lines and sporadic blocks of colour offer a simplicity found in work made by children. The simplicity is working in conjunction with a complex layer of mistakes, spills and messes.
Both artists share a desire to incorporate humour and playfulness in their work. They take the work seriously but delight in the spontaneous, in the play.
We’ve all been climbing the walls during these bizarre times. Sometimes walls can be useful collateral.
