“Art is the greatest asset to mental health I have”: Grayson Perry explores resilience in new show

Beckenham-based Bethlem Gallery is set to celebrate its 20th anniversary with It’s how well you bounce, a group show which will include an etching by former Turner Prize winner Grayson Perry, who is one of the gallery’s patrons.

It’s how well you bounce includes paintings, drawings, spoken word, video, performance, printmaking and sculptures from 15 artists whose work the gallery has exhibited in the last 20 years. The show “explores the concept of resilience and its relationship to the imagination and artistic practice. Our capacity to cope with adversity and in some cases, be strengthened by it, is an astounding feature of the human condition. Yet society’s expectations that we should bounce back, put up a fight and recover, could be counter-productive in how we deal with adversity.”

Among the artists exhibiting are John McGill, Esther Maxwell-Orumbie, Maureen Scott and Grayson Perry, whose etching Map of an Englishman (2004) uses 16th and 17th Century cartography techniques to explore the artist’s own mind.

Beth Elliott, director of Bethlem Gallery comments: “The artists and their work have always been at the heart of what we do: it is their vision and talent that have engaged visitors from all over the world for 20 years. We hope to continue to make an equitable space for artists, leading change within arts, health and society.”

Artist Grayson Perry adds: “Bethlem Gallery’s 20th anniversary is a great milestone to be celebrating. Art is the greatest asset to mental health I have; it has this amazing ability to go under the radar and it goes down little pathways which are un-trodden and yet it’s still a very legitimate way of thinking and feeling and getting on with your life. I hope that Bethlem Gallery continues to provide such vital support to artists.”

It’s how well you bounce will run 2 September – 28 October 2017.

Noma_bar_jack_johnstone_its_nice_that_li Features / Graphic Design “Always more!” – a walk in the woods with Noma Bar

If you go down to Highgate Woods in London today, you might be in for a bit of a surprise. Among the dog walkers, the frazzled parents searching for their kids and the forestry workers making sure that the ancient woodland is being preserved, you might, if you look carefully, find one of the most prolific artists and illustrators working in the UK. Highgate Woods, all 28 hectares of it, is Noma Bar’s ‘office’. Everyday, come rain or shine, the graphic artist is there, somewhere, armed with his notebooks and pens, working through ideas that will appear in their final forms in newspapers, magazines, as part of a campaign or a gallery.

Kayla Buium always knew she wanted to pursue a career in art. Her first ventures as an artist began at a young age, which involved taking commissions from friends at school. “I remember in second grade we used to use pencil ‘tips’ as currency. I would make flash pages of drawings and charge kids different ‘tip prices’ for the drawings,” says Kayla. “During recess I was always busy trying to keep up with commissions. Not much has changed since then.”
