Small Scrawls

Small Scrawls is an exhibition of new and existing work by Nina Coulston, Jethro German, Jacob Hepworth-Wain and Sarah Maccario. The artists explore ideas about size and scale in contemporary art and visual culture through painting, printing, drawing and making.

Nina Coulson
Nina lives and works in Worcestershire and London. Her practice involves varied collaborations, investigating the politics of art production in public and private realms. Recent works focus on human interactions with technology. Nina is also a co-founder and director of MOVEMENT, an artist-led project space on the platform of Worcester Foregate Street Railway Station.

For Small Scrawls, Nina has made a new series of drawings depicting female desire enacted via mobile communications. The images are harvested directly from stock images and are simply drawn on paper with a felt-tip pen.

Jethro German
A graduate of Chelsea College of Art and Design, Jethro German currently lives and works in Southampton. His work takes inspiration from a wide variety of sources, including televised sport, tool brochures and news stories.

For Small Scrawls, Jethro has made a new work, Scrootiny (Small Print).

“You can get away with making bad art if it’s small, or can you? People might look at it harder.”

Jacob Hepworth-Wain
Jacob Hepworth-Wain is a conceptual artist, working across video art, drawing and sculpture. He is interested in empathy, inter-dependencies and interiority.

For Small Scrawls, Jacob is exhibiting new work, titled Will o’ Wisp. His tiles are made by carving marbled jesmonite, in a difficult process working from medieval techniques. The work was inspired by watching netballers performing training drills.

“Work on a small scale should have a low barrier for entry and a high barrier for exit: the work of the audience should be met and recognised in some way. I hope this installation will affirm the values of the fleeting, as well as of looking and thinking.”

Sarah Maccario
Sarah Maccario is a graduate from Winchester School of Art. Her practice is an attempt to create a new visual language based on the quotidian, memories and colour, mostly through painting and drawing.

For Small Scrawls, Sarah is exhibiting a selection of her iPhone Sketches: Southampton, which were made on an outdated app on her old iPhone 5. The tiny 5cm x 8.5cm screen and the limited tools of the basic drawing software impose a welcome restraint on the artist, ensuring the work is spontaneous and simple.

Join us for the launch on Friday 14th June at 6pm.

Exhibition continues until 13th September
