It's Not Over Yet

Duncan McAfee 

19th March 16 April 2022

303 Projects, in collaboration with The Art Gallery, are very pleased to present a double first solo exhibition of work by artist Duncan McAfee.

 

Red wine substitute is spattered across the painted surfaces suggesting transubstantiation, intoxication and cartoon violence. Reflecting the uncertainties of our times, the population of cartoonish characters the artist depicts seem manic from overexposure, dissolving in a double-take cacophony of contradictory styles and techniques. They appear constructed from the rubble of twentieth century painting, with elements of its major art historical movements stolen and deformed, forced together in eye-popping new combinations. 

McAfee’s ambitious ‘takeover’ of two contemporary art galleries in Lowestoft, will ask the public to travel between 303 Projects, in Kirkley, South Lowestoft, to The Art Gallery in the Historic Old High Street to the North, to experience a comprehensive review of the artist’s recent return to painting which also coincides with his current placement on the prestigious Turps Banana Off-Site Programme.

 

McAfee’s images are bloated with contradictions: loud and quiet, irreverent and sincere, humorous and grotesque, accidental and intentional, timid and boisterous, anxious yet joyous and celebratory.

Naming a Cloud

Andrew Miller and Tom Woolner

13th November - 19th December 2021

Naming a Cloud includes a number of ‘Cut-outs’ by Andrew Miller – thin plywood sculptures that he says “...began because I had been making collages and so I was already thinking about how I was using paper and card, holding it, cutting it out, and not just using it as a surface but as kind of super thin object with weight and texture. But the painted Cut-outs have a different kind of autonomy as objects – like a coulisse on a stage set, they have a kind of dumb theatrical presence.”

Tom Woolner presents a series of sculptural, yet stubbornly and resolutely flat, wall-based works­. Made through an intuitive and playful process of pouring, piping and squidging, semi-viscous liquids congeal to agree upon a form that sits somewhere between object, painting and fresco, as the image is embedded into, rather than onto, the surface. Loosely bracketed under the title Internal Weather, they open portals into the body to reveal an alternative landscape and corporeal meteorology.

 

There is a shared focus on surface and edge, and by extension boundaries; prodding and probing at the line between inside and outside, front and back, painting and sculpture. There is humour in their approach, even an absurdity, that hangs in the air and lingers around the corner.

Zethu Maseko

18th September - 31st October 2021

Zethu Zizwe Ruby Maseko is a Swati and Cornish artist and musician, based in London. She works across performance, film, sound and sculpture, and often delivers workshops.

Her work explores de-colonial thinking, investingating de-colonial memory practices using ritual, storytelling, sonics and spiritual objects. In her practice she draws on issues of racial and gender politics, post-coloniality and Black experience in the UK.

For her exhibition at 303 Projects, the skill and craft of tapestry and weave are a means to record and archive overlapping histories and mythologies concerning identity, struggle, and the sea.

Zethu exhibitied in the New Contemporaries 2020 and 'Reflect Remember Reclaim Health' at the ICA London.
