Anise Gallery presents works by Jeanette Barnes in ‘Time and Tide’ (5/Nov-5/Dec)

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Anise Gallery presents works by Jeanette Barnes in ‘Time and Tide’, an exhibition at their Shad Thames space running from 5th November to 5th December.

Jeanette Barnes has, for the past 25 years, been capturing the city of London’s boundless energy through her drawings. Often vast in scale, they engage with the continual development of the urban environment and its relationship with those who inhabit it. In contrast to the frantic scenes that they depict, Jeanette’s drawings evolve gradually over time, the ebb and flow of information, akin to a passage of time, developing until the drawings outcome is found.

Her most recent work has taken her further into the depths of time, moving away from the familiar contemporary London to an exploration into its history, hidden and preserved amongst the river beds of the Thames. Everyday artefacts, carefully selected for their resonance, from specific sites along the Thames, St Paul’s, the Globe Theatre and Shad Thames, are reinterpreted. Their simplistic beauty highlighted and through integrating these objects into her work, Jeanette reconnects them with the present London.

‘Time and Tide’ brings these two bodies of work together for the first time, contrasting the activity and timespan of contemporary London with that deeper sense of history that London’s rivers maintain to re-frame our view of then and now.
