Artists #TakeoverAntlers Instagram

It gives us pleasure to announce an upcoming programme of artists taking over our Antlers Instagram account: @AntlersGallery / #TakeoverAntlers.

In these ‘day in the life of…’ 24-hour Instagram takeovers we will be giving the reins to artists we work with to post insights into their daily lives: a look into their studios, snapshots of what inspires them, events they’re attending and tasters of works in progress.

So far on the line-up we are profiling Tim Lane, Ian Chamberlain, Anouk Mercier and Ambrosine Allen (including special London Art Fair: Art Projects 2016 insights), with more artists to be revealed at the beginning of 2016.

These #TakeoverAntlers posts will go live every two weeks – if you would like to join us as the action unfolds then follow @AntlersGallery on Instagram.

Spent morning checking out this to-scale print on canvas for a 10ft drawing commission I am currently completing for Icon Films in Bristol. Really happy with the quality and definition! It’s now ready to go onto its final stage of being turned into a scroll which is exciting! Follow @IconFilms / @IconBristol (Twitter) for the grand unveil.

Ace lunchtime visit to Icon Films to have a peek at my original drawing for the commission – haven’t seen him in while but he’s looking pretty dapper now all framed up and ready to be installed. It’s just how I wanted it look – the box framing really makes the drawing feel like an artefact.

As my final #TakeoverAntlers post I am choosing is this eerie #latergram. Went to ‘In Dreams: David Lynch Revisited’ @colstonhall the other night and it was one of the most amazing and moving experiences ever – with such a deeply talented and intelligent assemble of musicians. I wasn’t able to take pictures during the show but snuck this one in before it began: me with #Twin Peaks #theloglady bathed in light! I was so effected by #TwinPeaks as a teen (and remain so) and a lot of its thrillingly unsettling mood was set by the great #AngeloBadalamenti music. This event really captured all that dark surrealism of #DavidLynch and massively inspired me to create new work. Great musical direction by #DavidCoulter and personal standout performance was @SophiaBrous.

That’s it from me but thank you for following what I’ve been up to today and stay tuned with Antlers for future updates: http://www.antlersgallery.com/artist/tim-lane

#TakeoverAntlers @ianprintmaker : I take influence from a range of sources that are continually changing and being edited and added to. The range of books shown here is a current source of inspiration for me and is feeding into my new pieces – there will always be a place though for Piranesi and the Bechers! The CDs show a range of music that I am currently listening to.

In my practice there is a subtle connection with the singer songwriter figure and lyrics dealing with isolation, the wanderer, landscape and a sense of discovery. Although music plays a subtle role I am becoming more aware of the similarities music has with making my work such as layering, sense of place, narrative and emotional connections.

#TakeoverAntlers @ianprintmaker : This video aims to show some of the processes and stages I take the etching plate through. There is a continual cycle and reworking of the plate – it is always evolving and changing through each part of the process. Each stage adds subtle additions and layers of information.

#TakeoverAntlers @ianprintmaker : I use a range of tools that have built up over several years. Each tool has individual qualities and generally the full range is used during the making of the print. I am continually looking for new tools that offer a different quality of line or mark making.

*Click here to watch the video.  #TakeoverAntlers @ianprintmaker : This last post is my new studio and a little look at the work I am currently developing. I have just finished three plates from the ‘Goonhilly’ series and am aiming to finish ‘Tower 1’ and ‘Geo-1’ by the New Year. They have taken a lot longer than previously planned but I have learnt a lot technically and practically and this will go a long way in informing new works and subject matter.

I hope you have enjoyed an insight into my art practice today and feel free to contact myself or Antlers for further information. Thanks for following and see you soon.

Hello, I’m @anouk_mercier and I will be taking over Antlers Instagram today with a selection of updates for #TakeoverAntlers.

It is a busy time in the studio at the moment leading up to exhibiting @LondonArtFair #ArtProjects in January. I am spending many happy hours here surrounded by works in progress and stretched paper…

#TakeoverAntlers @anouk_mercier : Here you can see some current inspiration and source material for my new work. Looking at Thomas and William Daniell following a recent commission I did in response to the Neo-Moghul architecture of #SezincoteHouse in the #Cotswolds. Also, one of the images haunting me at present and inspiring my new work is ‘Grande Cascade’, Parc de St. Cloud (Original Photograph – detail).

#TakeoverAntlers @anouk_mercier : Studio tools (above) and paper stretched, stencils made (below) – ready for a new series of miniatures. These are a part of my ongoing studies into the shapes used to frame landscape scenes in 18th Century interiors.
