100 YEARS ONAN ART TRAIL BY WOMEN IN PRISON
2018 is the centenary of women’s suffrage, which was preceded by a suffragette campaign which led to the imprisonment of many of its supporters. To commemorate the anniversary, the Koestler Trust is producing an art trail of Koestler Award-winning artworks by today’s women prisoners. The idea is simple but powerful: to exhibit 100 framed paintings, drawings, sculptures and poems by women in prison in important venues and public buildings throughout the UK, shining a light on women in prison 100 years on from the 1918 Representation of the People Act (passed on 6 February).

円熟 – EnjukuFiumano Clase
Takefumi Hori’s third UK solo exhibition will take place from 18th April – 26th May 2018 at Fiumano Clase, Unit 12, 21 Wren Street, London WC1X 0HF. Enjuku, taken as the title for the exhibition, is a Japanese term quite literally meaning maturity, perfection and ripeness. It is often used to describe an individual who, through continued study and personal development, has reached a milestone in their creative lives. It is without question that Japanese artist Takefumi Hori’s artistic practice has now reached a new level of maturity, perfection and ripeness. Furthering his exploration into the profundity of gold both as a colour and a material, Hori’s layering and revelatory technique brings a renewed depth and dynamism to his paintings.

Dénes Maróti: Landscape and the SelfFiumano Clase
Landscape and the Self is an exhibition of recent paintings and etchings by Hungarian artist Dénes Maróti. Since completing his studies at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Art in 2005 Maróti has had numerous solo exhibitions and shown his works internationally to critical acclaim. The focus of this exhibition is Maróti’s painting process, with the landscape and portrait imagery serving as vehicles for his experimentation and continual artistic investigations. He uses a combination of brushes, palette knife and his own hands to apply and remove paint - rubbing and texturing the surface of his paintings. The application and removal of paint suggests layers of memory which intensify and fade away.
