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.
