‘Year of Meteors’, 2018, is on show in Heads Roll at the Graves Gallery Sheffield, until 24th November 2018.
The exhibition, curated by Paul Morrison, brings together historic and contemporary portraits by artists including Frank Auerbach, Glenn Brown, Patrick Caulfield, Michael Craig-Martin, Jessica Diamond, Machiko Edmondson, Jacob Epstein, William Etty, Klara Kristalova, L.S. Lowry, Ben Nicholson, Mary Obering, Julian Opie, Ruth Root, Walter Sickert and Mathew Weir.
A Paul Morrison Studio project – presenting painting, sculpture and a new print series by Mathew Weir – A Maze of Parts will explore notions of containment and escape. Installed within Attercliffe™, a former Victorian bank branch, the works will integrate with and gain resonance from this unique environment. A text – Amazingly Weird – by psychoanalyst and writer Anouchka Grose accompanies the exhibition.
CFAR runs a low-cost clinical service offering long-term open-ended therapy to unemployed and low-income people. It has been running since 2001, and is funded by the generosity of artists who have an understanding of analytic work. Each year, an artist donates a work which CFAR then sells privately, usually to one of a small group of benefactors. Artists who have donated works include Antony Gormley, Anish Kapoor, Cornelia Parker and Grayson Perry. This week Mathew Weir donated the painting Sorrow’s Child, 2013, to support CFAR’s work.
