Rhythms in Sculpture by David Sprakes

Rhythms in Sculpture by David Sprakes

David Sprakes’s sculptures are based on the natural world, the landscapes of the Peak District and the North East coast.

Inspired by weathered, eroded objects observed and collected in the landscape, the artist translates these into abstract sculptures where textured and patinated surfaces are balanced against polished areas.

Drawing, clay modelling, mould-making, casting, construction and carving illustrates the breadth of techniques in David’s work.

The exhibition introduces various materials, each suited to demonstrate the artist’s sensitivity to form and texture and their change with the passing of time.

Lorenzetti

A Silent Conversation: Lorenzetti and the Ferens Collection

Since its arrival at the Ferens in January 2017, Lorenzetti’s Christ Between Saints Paul and Peter has attracted over 100,000 visitors, appearing in countless news pieces across all genres.

At the heart of Lorenzetti’s masterpiece is an emotional energy between Christ, Saints Paul and Peter, with the three figures represented as if engaged in a ‘silent conversation’. This new exhibition, co-curated by a group of Hull 2017 volunteers, explores how artists across the centuries use dialogue – and indeed its absence – in their work.

Last admission – 30 minutes before closing.

Tell The World

The story of 2017 is one of successful partnerships and on Tuesday 9 January a new exhibition, Tell The World, will open to showcase the organisations who helped make the Hull 2017 story possible.

From bus operators to law firms, manufacturers and construction companies, a total of 80 partners had the belief, commitment and confidence in this city to give £32 million, making Hull’s unparalleled year possible.

But it wasn’t just about the money: behind the scenes, thousands of staff from organisations across the city did their part to make the year truly remarkable. They embraced every moment and every opportunity to try something new and demonstrate what makes this city so incredible.

In Tell The World, a selection of Hull 2017’s partners tell their stories of the year and share their plans for the future.

Born Into A City Of Culture: Celebration Event

In 2017, the footprints of thousands of babies born at Hull Women’s and Children’s Hospital were printed onto a unique piece of artwork as part of Hull 2017 Creative Communities project Born Into A City Of Culture.

Richie Culver

No one knows me like Dawn from the Jobcentre

No one knows me like Dawn from the Jobcentre is Richie Culver’s first solo show in Hull, where he grew up.

Spread across two floors of the gallery, No one knows me like Dawn from the Jobcentre features mainly paintings. An honest, sometimes humorous account of time spent on Job Seekers Allowance underpins this body of new work. It invites the viewer to look at the fleeting yet significant relationships we encounter as we strive for success in the face of adversity. Richie’s work draws on many personal references, from his working-class roots, to metropolitan living, as well as his own experience of the darker side of urban life.

With a fascinating creative path that has taken him all over the world as a photographer and as a self-taught artist working in paint and mixed media (including collaborating with the likes of Topman) Richie’s work is highly sought after.

Richie’s work, especially his paintings, has become progressively abstract to bring together different elements of his works as a multi-disciplinary artist and he is collected by Blain|Southern, Adele and Tate. Last year, Hull 2017 commissioned Richie to create Costa Del Wiv, a series of shop fronts in Hull’s Whitefriargate, celebrating his roots and the coastal town of Withernsea.
