Second solo exhibition of paintings by Jess Levine

Private View 28 November 2013, 6pm - 8pm
Show runs 28 November - 7 December 2013
Open Hours: Thursday - Saturday, 12pm - 7pm

My work stems from various sources which include personal travels, Kentish landscape, current affairs, childhood memories and textile designs and the inherent qualities of paint and paper.
I don’t like to limit myself to one discipline, instead preferring to use a wide range of materials and to draw on a wide variety of sources. However, I often initially explore ideas using collage, as I find this a useful process in realising more finished pieces of work or in translating ideas using paint. Read more...

Open Hours: Thursday - Saturday, 12pm - 7pm

…I feel as if Nadiya’s work has taken me on an alternative whistle stop tour of the capital; a tour of a begotten London miraculously silenced, captured in snap shot frames of time standing still. Zoe-Lee Skelton

Latest and well-known earlier works will be available to public from 12 – 28 September 2013. In her works, Nadiya Pavliv-Tokarska sees London as a expressive essence that takes on different dimensions and identities, delivered through a subtle balance of intensity, vibrancy and dynamics of the images.

Keith Harrison, (selected exhibitor at the ‘Jerwood Open 2011’), will be talking about his exciting live performance pieces including his recent clay speakers destoyed by sound!

CiTiES:All Dimensions PART2
Private View
7 March 2013, 6pm - 8pm
Show runs

7 - 17 March 2013, Thursday - Saturday, 12pm - 7pm

Cities, like people, have their stories. Loved or deserted, they never fail to provoke a reaction. Silent testaments to human endeavour and social intelligence they form a collective view, which we tend to interpret by focusing on a certain aspect of its being. It may even be acceptable to think that cityscape art is a reflection of oneself within the city-concept. Cities, like people, grow, age and develop. However their lifespan is unrivalled to that of their inhabitants. Driven by social tendencies their transition from generation to generation often perceived as seamless. This facade cannot be further from the truth though, as we explore a vibrant collection in the group show “Cities: All Dimensions”.

Telling their stories is the group of national and international artists united by the subject matter of the ever-changing, infinitely fascinating and disarmingly captivating urban formations. The broad spectrum of mediums used is a strong match for the geographical locations of the exhibitors as well as wide-ranging aspects of their works.

Cities, like people, have their stories. Loved or deserted, they never fail to provoke a reaction. Silent testaments to human endeavour and social intelligence they form a collective view, which we tend to interpret by focusing on a certain aspect of its being. It may even be acceptable to think that cityscape art is a reflection of oneself within the city-concept. Cities, like people, grow, age and develop. However their lifespan is unrivalled to that of their inhabitants. Driven by social tendencies their transition from generation to generation often perceived as seamless. This facade cannot be further from the truth though, as we explore a vibrant collection in the group show “Cities: All Dimensions”.

Telling their stories is the group of national and international artists united by the subject matter of the ever-changing, infinitely fascinating and disarmingly captivating urban formations. The broad spectrum of mediums used is a strong match for the geographical locations of the exhibitors as well as wide-ranging aspects of their works.

Stuart Jones: “The subject matter of the urban environment is what feeds and inspires my work in particular it is the linear compositions I discover within urban constructions. It is these structural lines and shapes viewed from unusual viewpoints that create the dramatic compositions within my paintings.

William Stok: “This series of paintings – windows- by being set in line along the gallery wall suggest the façade of a building. Through each window I see the interior of each flat; in this case the images of houses, one quite different from the next... The houses are meant to be containers of emotion, of events, of something which has or may happen. Fairy tales which are told without them becoming illustrative.”

Julie Steward: “…transition is one theme that runs through my work, with its associations of transience and ephemeral, of aftermath and debris, of displacement and relocation, of memory and (re)collection.”

Tony Berkman: “I have continued to work on the theme of urban or city living and am constantly encouraged by the almost limitless range which this offers as inspiration for my artistic expression.”

Tokarska Gallery’s first call for entries for its annual exhibition “Cities: All Dimenstions” attracted the very best of the emerging artists working in this genre. With submissions from the USA, China, Japan, Europe and nationwide it proved to be an arduous process to select the works.

No - One To Bestow by Emma Scutt
Private View
7 February 2013, 6pm - 9pm
Show runs
5 - 9 February 2013, Tuesday - Saturday, 12pm - 7pm

No-one to Bestow was originally exhibited as part of the 2012 E17 Art Trail, and the inspiration came from the theme for the Art Trail, Bestow.
For his own Art Trail exhibition, my friend Fabien decided to follow the Bestow theme and photographed Walthamstow residents with a cherished object bestowed to them, and he photographed me with the beautiful wooden doll’s house my Grandfather made for me when I was a little girl. I started to think about the doll’s house, and how as I grew up I’d always imagined I would pass it on to a daughter. I realised that as I don’t have children I have no-one to leave my things to. I have always wanted to have children, though at the age of 42 I realise this is increasingly unlikely, and this is something I’m trying to come to terms with. Read more...

Paintings by Maciej Hoffman

Private View 20 September 2012, 6pm - 8pm
Show runs: 20 September - 6 October 2012, Thur - Sat, 12pm - 7pm

All the angst of the world seems spilled out in drips, splatters and gestural brushstrokes on the huge unstretched canvases of Maciej Hoffman's current exhibition at Walthamstow's Tokarska Gallery. The distressed surfaces depict equally distressed characters with existential Expressionist force and a seeming spontaneity of style.

'Disquiet', 'Powerless', 'Nameless', 'Confused', 'Agitator'; Hoffman's titles are accurate indicators of his content. These are grandiose dramatic works full of the tension and conflict by which Hoffman is frequently seized; the collision of thoughts with reality. Stress and fear flow from the problems of the everyday through the walls of his studio to rip apart the work. Almost all his days, he says, are accompanied by stress and the fear of danger, encircled, as he is, by a world in which a price is paid for each breath.

Age Of East 17

Private View 2 September 2012, 6pm - 8pm
Show runs: 1 - 16 September 2012, Wed - Sun 12pm - 7pm

Age of East 17 is a group show featuring works of four local artists: The Olympic Torch in Waltham Forest project by Mark Burton and Friends, painters Jason Hawkridge, Carne Griffiths and Nadiya Pavliv-Tokarska

Carne Griffiths’ artwork is born from a love of drawing and the journey of creating an image on the page. Working primarily with calligraphy ink, graphite and liquids, such as tea brandy, vodka and whisky he draws and then manipulates the drawn line. After graduating from Maidstone college of art Carne served an apprenticeship and worked as a gold wire embroidery designer for 12 years, hence floral pattern, repetition and flow play a large part in his work.

Exhibition runs from 21 June - 21 July 2012, Thur - Sat, 12pm - 7pm.

1948 was the last time the Olympics was held in London. The contrast is stark; London was recovering from war, athletes weren’t paid, were training on rations whilst working full-time and many had to hand sew their own kit. During the past six years, Katherine Green has has been meeting with, photographing and recording interviews with the British Olympic Team from the 1948 Olympics. Now in their 80s and 90s, they share their extraordinary stories in this touring exhibition.

CARAVAGGIO - A LIFE SACRED AND PROFANE

Talks by Andrew Graham-Dixon Friday 20 July 2012, 6pm - 9pm

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610) lived the darkest and most dangerous life of any of the great painters. The worlds of Milan, Rome and Naples through which Caravaggio moved, and which Andrew Graham-Dixon describes brilliantly in this book, are those of cardinals and whores, prayer and violence…

Andrew Graham-Dixon is one of the leading figures in broadcasting in the UK, having presented seven major television series on art for the BBC – more than anyone else in the corporation’s history. He has been researching Caravaggio’s life and art for more than ten years, and the results of that work are now drawn together in this book.

This is a ticketed event with an Entry Fee £10 (SOLD OUT)

Fade In Fade Out

Exhibition runs from 24 May - 9 June 2012, Thur - Sat, 12pm - 7pm.

Artist and painter, Kathleen Mullaniff, has a second obsession. An obsession which is at once attached to and envelope her small studio. The visitor is invited into the garden, and eventually through a garland of soft winter hues that surround the entrance to her studio. The borders are dormant now. But cross the threshold into the studio and these same sleeping winter colours are revealed through line and mark, in a series of pristine canvases. Marianne North would recognize the samples of seedpods, branches, twigs, dried petals and leaves imported into the studio from the garden, the salvaged fragments that form the still life source for this series of immaculate paintings.

Hannah Humphreys
Hannah Humphreys is an artist based in the West Midlands she produces abstract paintings which are inspired by a personal automatic narrative, which becomes descriptive, yet allusive. This narrative is used as part of the process in making the work. It is not her aim to reveal her subconscious mind nor to direct meaning, but to transport the viewer imaginatively in to a unique visual world; escaping from reality, crossing the boundaries from the outer to inner world.

WINDMILL

A windmill gets its power from the wind on its wings. It uses this power to make energy for grounding grains or draining the land. As a toy, it pleases people by rotating.
We are the same, affected or inspired by the environment to produce artworks which move our viewers. The work of the four artists in W I N D M I L L is very different but we are all affected by our surroundings and we would like to see how we harmonize in the gallery space.

Exhibition runs from 15 - 31 March 2012, Thur - Sat, 12pm - 7pm.

Welcome to Tokarska Gallery 
Turning ideas into reality requires a fair amount of courage, determination and resources but above all dedication. The idea of having a gallery space in Walthamstow was born in earlier 2007 and it took us over four years to get all of the prerequisites right.Tokarska Gallery opened in March 2011 providing an unparalleled podium for emerging and established artists to exhibit their works, hold artists talks as well as network and collaborate.
The gallery received warmest welcome and was embraced by the local art community, for which we are deeply grateful.
 
Lia Vio: Solely In My Head
Private View  2 February 2012, 7pm - 9pm

Exhibition runs from 2 –  25 February 2012, Thur - Sat, 12pm - 7pm.

Lia Vio's most anticipated "Mining the Silent Evidence" Series (2011) refuses to succumb to reality, it keeps alive the confusions of dream, desire, fact, and fiction. Moments dissolve into dreamlike patterns and colors of almost magical iridescence in photographic works that are currently exhibited in Tokarska Gallery London. The magnificent chromogenic color prints mounted on dibond and acrylic offer a subtle and expansive meditation on the human understanding of time & moment.

In times of hardship and economic strain we often have to quicken the pace of change, or harness a resourcefulness to intercept time’s dogged pattern, simply ticking over to a compulsory destiny.
