Negative Press Event: Martin Crawley and Jane Wildgoose in Bow, 17 June 2017

On Saturday 17 June, Negative Press London presented an intimate exhibition and salon-style event, which took place at Martin Crawley’s home and studio in Bow, London E3. Martin Crawley and Jane Wildgoose exhibited together for the first time for this special one-off event.

Martin exhibited three works from Arcadia, a commentary on ideas of the picturesque and its eighteenth century beginnings, the starting point of which was a set of 1950s postcards published by the British Museum of prints and drawings by Claude Lorraine.

Jane exhibited Lost But Not Forgotten, a work-in-progress inspired by nineteenth century amateur women hairworkers who made flowers from the hair of family and friends, which they entwined in commemorative wreaths and displayed on parlour walls.

Both discussed their art and read from their books published by Negative Press London.

Strong Room reviewed for Sabotage Reviews

Eleanor Hernsley has reviewed Strong Room for Sabotage Reviews.

‘Strong Room holds an enchanting collection of photographs alongside a short story that reignites a sense of archaic longing within us. The focus is, as with many other things, on the digital age, and the things modern day humans are missing out on. But this doesn’t come across as a stuck-in-the-past piece. Instead it’s more of a pining recollection, a remembering and longing for the past whilst being firmly set in the present.’
