The exhibition title Sculptured OUT, refers to the process that the 7 artists undergo to make their work. Forty two Mice, Flynn Doran, Katherine Mahoney, Barb Nanshe and Jeremy Robinson are sculptors, who all use various processes to create their works from moulding clay to soldering iron and casting steel. While Helene Leane and Alison Smith use tools as printmakers, to sculpt a 'printing plate' to create their monotype and woodcut prints.
Exhibiting artists include: Flynn Doran, Helene Leane, Barb Nanshe, Katherine Mahoney,
Jeremy Robinson, Alison Smith and Forty two Mice.
Sculptured OUT is a gallery-curated exhibition.
"From Nanshe I crossed the road to see an exhibition titled “Sculptured Out” at what I would say is Newcastle’s newest gallery, Gallery 139. I recognised instantly the abstracted monotypes of Helene Leane. Flynn Doran’s geometrical steel structures wonderfully brought the industrial into the gallery. His wall mounted assemblages made of painted steel rod proved very successful."
