Satellites do not exist in isolation. A satellite is defined by its relationship with the object that it orbits.

19th Century philosopher G. H. Lewes gave the term a more narrow definition. He said that emergence happens when something that isn’t suggested by its constituent parts comes into being. Something new and unanticipated. For example, a lone ant has limited capacity to reason and isn’t capable of accomplishing much, but ant colonies have a sort of group-intelligence that helps them to complete complex tasks. When they come together, this intelligence emerges. 

Paul Gauguin spoke of the artist as an alchemist, using their materials to create an entirely new entity. Nothing in the oil, pigment, linen canvas and wooden stretcher that make up a painting suggests the profound effect it can have on a viewer. Looking at these components for creation, it is not possible to anticipate what their sum might be at the artist’s hands.

The artworks in this exhibition, all by new artists to Rise Art’s roster, can be thought of as illustrations of the way that something new and significant comes to exist through the combination of unassuming parts. Furthermore, in the exhibition itself each work becomes a constituent part of a wider impression. This impression will vary between different viewers, each picking up different ingredients from each artwork and mentally combining them using a different recipe.

What emerges, though, will always be greater than and different to its components. It will not be reducible to their sum or their difference. It will come up, come out, come to light. Be revealed, uncovered, disclosed. Quietly, slowly, gradually.

In this exhibition, ten large-scale works in their respective artists’ signature styles are hung alongside ten “satellite” pieces. The  pairs all differ in scale and many also do in colour, subject, medium and style. Hung together, they engage in a dialogue where each work counterpoints the other. The result is a complex web that extends beyond the gallery space: relationships between each artist and their artworks and between the artworks themselves. 

"Everyone has a different way of perceiving, and this is mine; what is behind that which is visible is interesting to me."

SEÇIL EREL

Sometimes the two are engaged in a direct exchange, like a television satellite in space sending signals to a satellite dish on earth or a satellite town sending commuters into the city. Sometimes they don’t stay in such close contact. There is always a relationship between them.

An artwork, on being completed and leaving the artist’s studio, is endowed with its own power and life. But, like a satellite, it remains just within the artist’s gravitational pull. It cannot exist without reference to its creator.

"The world is paused, broken down into layers, shuffled, pushed back together and sent on its way. Nothing is static, there is a sense of temporary, imbalance, discomfort."

NIKI HARE

"I really believe you have to know and understand a landscape. The more I learn about the Fens the more I need to paint it."

FRED INGRAMS

"Day Bowman’s art is at once vibrant and individual, her use of line and colour is both powerful and disturbing."
