In the communal Riverside studio at Re:Centre, Hammersmith, ten London based artists have embraced the concept of 'play' through their art.
This is the second three month residency commissioned by ReCentre's art initiative and culminates in a two week long exhibition titled 'PLEI' at Re:Centre's 4000 square feet event space.  
Exhibiting artist Kate Lowe says: In a world that is saturated with technology, purposefulness, stress and responsibilities, people seldom make time for play.
Playing through art has allowed us to make, unmake and remake our world. 
Both play and art are generative and we hope that you will experience some of the power of PLEI as you encounter the work.  
The artists practices are diverse; they make work across many media and channels including video, figurative painting, sound, collage, mixed media, abstract expression, photography, drawing, fabric, sculpture and installation.
Reconnecting to their instinct to experiment, fool around, make mistakes, make a mess, become confused, feel awkward, be silly, be non-purposeful (on purpose), be self-directed and indulge in pretending has allowed all ten artists to explore the role of play through art.  
'Plei' opens with a private view on 24th Juanuary 6.30 - 8.30 pm at Re:Centre. Following the private view the exhibition is open to the pubic (admission free) 11 am - 5 pm daily until 5th February.

'A Window on Iceland' Opens at Embassy of Iceland
Posted on: Thu, 22 Nov 2018
PRIVATE VIEW: Thursday, 29th November, 5.30pm - 7.30pm ADDRESS: Embassy of Iceland, 2a Hans Street, London, SW1X 0JE RSVP: By 27th November: rsvp@artbelow.org.uk Exhibition is open to the public from 30th November 2018 to 30th March 2019 by appointment only
A Window On Iceland opening 29th November is Francine Davies' biggest solo exhibition to date taking place at The Embassy Of Iceland. The 4 months will consist of entirely new and unseen works inspired by the artists recent trip to Iceland.   Davies' work primarily features coast lines and sea scapes.  The exhibition will present over 50 works on canvas that aim to capture the beauty, energy, geology, meteorology, geomorphology of Iceland.    The artist strives to reflect a strong connection and interest in climate change and aims to use this exhibition as a vehicle for change and awareness in this ever increasingly important area of debate. This beautiful country (Iceland)  represents the stage of development at which a civilised world should stop, learn and listen. People are focused on understanding the natural world that surrounds them and of which they are a part , which allows them to work with it rather than against it. Most of the developed world is still carving up landscapes, driven by a mindset that sees nature as something that must be controlled, harnessed and exploited to meet the needs of the people inhabiting it.  Iceland on the other hand felt like a country that was not guided by fear, despite the harshness of the environment, but by a more sensitive, intelligent response, working with its own limitations and those posed by the natural world around them. Francine Davies.  In her home country of Wales Davies is represented by Off the Wall Art Gallery in Cardiff.
Earlier in London this year Davies has exhibited with Art Below who featured her landscapes across billboard space at Hyde Park tube station and at Regent's Park tube station.  This coincided with her taking part in two group exhibitions at Herrick Gallery as part of Mayfair Art Week in July 2018 and at Anemoi Art in Mayfair during Frieze Week, October 2018.  For her Iceland Exhibition Art Below will be featuring an image of one of her Iceland paintings as a billboard poster at Hyde Park tube station for two weeks from 14th January 2019 for two weeks.   A donation from the profits of this exhibition will go towards the RR81 Fund.
