We were delighted to have shown for the fifth time at Collect, at the Saatchi Gallery. Five artists we exhibited:

Melanie Georgacopoulos showed her stunning jewellery – this year for the first time using mother of pearl.

Tony Hayward showed his extraordinary three dimensional assemblages this time made from found small-scale paintings showing peopleless landscapes. 

Marta Rogoyska showed her distinctive tapestries with abstract images in hand dyed exuberant colours

Nicola Tassie showed new pieces which continue her experimentation with the functional, functionally ambiguous and sculptural.

Janice Tchalenko showed new porcelain bowls and vessels

Melanie Georgacopoulos showed her latest jewellery collection. Known for challenging ideas about the pearl as a material for traditional jewellery, she is now creating new ways of working with Mother of Pearl. Her fabulous designs show off its beautiful iridescent multi colours and use the material in a new way. Once again she challenges the traditional use of a material.

Shown at Collect 2017  

Tony Hayward has created three works for Collect – all are made from found small scale paintings showing peopleless landscapes in which he appears to have pealed back the picture surface to reveal a 3D landscape below. To these he has added elements which echo objects in the painting. The canvases are angled to the wall so that the viewer has to move around to experience the illusion of the image as well as the materiality of the canvas.

Tassie showed a group of ceramic works related to Folly Series 1 Height 250 cm. She has been experimenting with the functional, functionally ambiguous and sculptural. Works at Collect were towards the sculptural or are they?

At Collect in 2015 Nicola Tassie's installations were a sell out.
