ROCK PORTRAITS 90/94 by DEAN RYAN
Live music photography at the Jericho Tavern
In the early 1990s the Jericho Tavern in Oxford placed itself firmly on the musical map as the venue that played a major part in the rise to fame of bands such as Radiohead and Supergrass – along the way many other soon-to-be-famous bands also played the venue, including The Verve, Pulp and The Cranberries.
This exhibition captures the action, dramatic mood and style of the early 1990s live music scene through the lens of photographer Dean Ryan.
Inspired by great contemporary photographers, Julia Martinez, art and advertising model, completed a photography degree to make images of beauty from behind the lens. Through her creative use of light and sympathetic vision, she makes compelling and unusual images
Flora McLachlan's etchings and paintings have an unforgettable presence, infused with a haunting sense of poetry. She creates the sinewy curves and twists of the leafless trees, where the darkness opens and closes, and draws us in. She shows us ancient woodland under windy skies, where the flying moon leaves pools of light and spaces crossed with shadow.
McLachlan's work is carefully structured, where echoes of form build distinctive compositions, enriched by her use of patterns from the natural world.
Presenting new works by painter Kathy Ramsay Carr and glass artist Phil Atrill, whose shared inspiration of the changing light and mood of the horizon is grounded in a quiet contemplation of the landscape. Richly textured oil paintings echo the fluid lines of colour in dramatic glass forms, creating a fascinating interplay between media.

"My art is about the emotions and the states of being that people experience in various life situations. Each painting is like a still frame of the chosen moment – a glimpse of the situation with focus on the atmosphere.
The physical act of painting and the enjoyment I get from manipulating the surface of a painting I create are the driving forces in my art, even more so than the subject of my work.
I search constantly for the combinations of colours, textures and shapes that awaken in me a sense of pleasure and satisfaction.
