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.
