Art and Performance Weekend Artist Jantil Moon

Participate In Art and the Royal Porcelain Works will host the first Arts and Performance Weekend on 24th to the 26th August 2019 at the Royal Porcelain Work, off Severn Street, Worcester.

A weekend like no other bringing all aspects of arts and culture together in one place, from poetry, a book shop, artworks to interactive performances.

An amazing weekend of culture and experience with live music, song, poetry, plays, interactive installations, art and artists in the beautiful surrounds on the recently renovated Royal Porcelain Works. This event is suitable for all ages and appreciations.

Artist Jantil Moon will be there over the weekend…

Artist: Jantil Moon

Jantil Moon is based in Worcester, UK where she originally moved to study Science in 2000. It wasn’t long however before she was drawn to the Arts and subsequently this led her to embark on and complete a BA in Ceramics and Glass at De Montfort University, Leicester in 2008.

The alchemical nature of ceramics provided an opportunity to unite Jantil’s strengths and passion for both artistic and scientific experimentation, for example, particularly when testing possibilities with glaze formulation and unusual surface treatments.

Jantil now primarily works with either paper and ink, or acrylic on canvas.

Science still provides much of her inspiration and she has continued to build upon themes investigated during her studies, such as the ambiguity of forms occurring in micro and macro scales, and the rich source imagery found among pre-digital, and especially vintage scientific diagrams and illustrations.

From waves to particles, biology to landscapes, I am endlessly fascinated by how the universe has patterns, cycles and forms that mirror each other across many scales.

For me, both art and science are connected by the primary driving force of human curiosity about our reality, and the creative endeavour to satisfy it.

Jantil’s recent work also includes elements of philosophy, religious iconography and mystic symbolism, as she explores and draws on her uniquely diverse family heritage of Irish Catholicism/Church of England on the maternal side, and Islam/Judaism on the paternal one.

Through her art practice, Jantil desires to illuminate the human quest to make sense of our reality, and our conscious relationship to it, as we continuously endeavour to glimpse the intangible through various lenses of perception, be they scientific, religious or philosophical.

Using a repertoire of abstract forms and familiar symbolism, Jantil intends to illustrate that all interpretations of our wondrous inner and outer worlds also ultimately lie in the mind’s-eye of the beholder.

Drawing on coffee stained paper provides a fertile foundation; the incidental marks suggesting a potential composition. Then during the repetitive slow process of organically building up these familiar and ambiguous structures, I have time to meditate on my own perceptions and theories.

Art and Performance Weekend Artist Richard Delingpole

Participate In Art and the Royal Porcelain Works will host the first Arts and Performance Weekend on 24th to the 26th August 2019 at the Royal Porcelain Work, off Severn Street, Worcester.

Artist Richard Delingpole will be there over the weekend...

Artist: Richard Delingpole

Richard Delingpole is a Worcester-born artist, illustrator and graphic designer. After a Foundation at Bournville School of Art and a Fine Art degree at Cheltenham Art College he completed an MA in Fine Art at the University of Ulster, Belfast.

After a year living in Bristol he moved to London. There he became a graphic designer, working in advertising and marketing.

These watercolours show soldiers and auxiliary figures throughout history, using friends from the re-enactment world as models.

Each painting shows, in great detail, both front and back of the individual, as so much of what makes a soldier’s battledress interesting is hanging from his back.

More recently he has re-invented the cigarette card for the 21st century, taking the front facing part of each painting and adding a description to the back of each card.

These have proved very popular as a collectible and ever-expanding series of inexpensive prints.

Art and Performance Weekend – Love Letters Performance

Participate In Art and the Royal Porcelain Works will host the first Arts and Performance Weekend on 24th to the 26th August 2019 at the Royal Porcelain Work, off Severn Street, Worcester.

Interactive performance and art installation Brain Cocaine will be there over the weekend...

Brain Cocaine presents:

Love Letters (an interactive art installation and performance)

Love Letters

In our often busy and stressful lives, it can be difficult to find a moment to appreciate ourselves and our loved ones. Love Letters invites audiences to take that moment. Upon entering the space, you will be asked to pick a love letter and have it read to you, then will be encouraged to write your own. The letter could be addressed to anyone – a loved one, a friend, yourself – or it could even be to the city or to the world. It’s a moment to ponder how much the people in our lives matter to us, as we are often so busy, we forget to tell them how much they mean to us! 

The letters will be collected and hung in an awesome display of love, diversity, acceptance and truth. Creating the installation is our way of battling current divisive politics. The media makes out that we are a country already at war with each other. Let’s show them that we are a country of acceptance and love!

**Audiences are welcome to take photographs of their letters, or the display of letters as part of the installation and to share these on social media. Please be aware that a publicity photographer will sometimes be present on-site. Participants may be photographed during their participation and these photographs may be used online and in print for promotional purposes. If you don’t want to appear in photographs, you are welcome to opt-out. Please speak to a performer or the photographer to make us aware you don’t want to be photographed. All persons under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.**

Brain Cocaine are a performance collective specialising in fully interactive performances. We’re not like traditional theatre; we invite audiences into fun fictional worlds where they get to be the characters and take part in the performance. We make ‘feel-good’ theatre; our work often focuses on positively boosting mental health and encouraging self-love and self-appreciation. It’s all about you!

Brain Cocaine have taken work to some of the most prominent art platforms and venues in the UK including Duckie at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern (London), Emergency (Manchester) and Acts of Searching Closely (London). 

Love Letters will be performing on Saturday 24th and Monday 26th, with the installation growing organically throughout the weekend.

Over the August Bank Holiday Saturday and Sunday 11-5pm and Monday 11-4pm, visitors will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in art and culture of all forms at The Royal Porcelain Works, Severn Street, Worcester, WR1 2NE.

Artist Jilly Oxlade-Arnott will be there over the weekend...

Artist: Jilly Oxlade-Arnott

She is a Worcester based architectural watercolour artist from a family of draughtsmen, painters, potters and sculptors. Having two distinct styles, a traditional ‘Classique’ which is bright watercolour with detailed fine line ink and ‘Vivid’, simplistic bold lines on layers of pure vibrant colours, inspired by the pop art genre and best seen on large scale canvasses.

Oxlade-Arnott is known for her unique watercolour and fine line ink depictions of historically or nationally significant architecture.

Jilly is known nationally for her works of Worcester, London, Cheltenham, Malvern and Ludlow and is gaining a following from the international collector’s scene for both her classique global and vivid work.

She is currently exhibiting in Croome Court (National Trust), Eastnor Castle and Canwood Gallery , she has also just finished a large scale indoor and outdoor project at St. Joseph’s Catholic School for ‘One World Week’.

Architecture and its’ appreciation is of importance to Oxlade-Arnott, who commented “Buildings are the foundation of our lives, the interaction we all have with them may be inconsequential but if, once in a while you stop, look up, you’ll be surprised by what you’ve missed and how varied and intricate the urban landscape can really be.”
