Tarpey Gallery is excited to introduce our followers to Sheffield based painter and printmaker Mandy Payne. Exhibiting a broad spectrum of work that ranges from Collagraphs to Paintings on Concrete. ‘Between Places and Spaces’ is Mandy Payne’s inaugural solo show and will be on display from the 26th April to the 31st of May, 2014.

 

Mandy Payne has had an incredibly successful breakthrough year, after graduating from Nottingham University with a first class degree in 2013, Mandy has since had two works displayed at the Threadneedle Prize and has now been accepted into the prestigious John Moores with her exciting series of works on concrete depicting the since renovated Park Hill flats from her native town in Yorkshire.

 

The exhibition will feature a diverse range of work touching on the many facets that make up the artists studio practice, specifically works from her portfolio that focus on landscapes ‘From the City to the Countryside’.

 

Guardian Guide, Sat 3 May, 2014
Sheffield’s Grade II*-listed Park Hill flats are in the process of being reassessed as a modernist treasure. Yet, as the concrete blocks await gentrification, there is the danger of their brutalist grandeur being aesthetically dissolved. The Sheffield-based artist Mandy Payne recognises this in Between Places And Spaces, a series of unforgiving paintings of the flats. Payne often paints directly with aerosols on to concrete. Her compositions – bold arrangements of blank-faced geometric walls, empty windows and deserted walkways – similarly pull no pictorial punches.

Artist Statement

My work is largely inspired by landscape, particularly the urban, edgeland areas of Sheffield and the rural backdrop of the Peak District which are close to where I live.  I am particularly drawn to locations that are often overlooked or neglected and I am also fascinated by the capacity of a place to absorb memories and experiences.

 

For my recent body of work I have been exploring Park Hill, the Grade II* listed Sheffield council estate.  This is one of Britain’s largest examples of Brutalist architecture and is currently undergoing refurbishment.

My principal painting medium is mixed media, working primarily in acrylics and oils.

 

The physicality of paint is an important element in my work, as is exploring different media and processes, from staining, pouring and splattering to more layered and impasto processes. Colour and texture are also important to me, I often incorporate different materials into my paint such as sand, cement and marble dust to produce a distinctive surface quality. For my recent work of Park Hill I have largely been using materials integral to the estate itself. I have used concrete mixed into the paint and as substrate to work on directly, using aerosol paints and  collaging with aluminium.

 

I like to work in situ initially, working from direct observation and drawings and then using photographs to complete the piece, particularly for colour referencing.

A large part of my practice also involves printmaking and I have explored many techniques including; screen print, collagraphs, etching, stone lithography, lino and woodcut in an attempt to interpret the landscape.
