The exhibition explores the works of five artists who use architectural surfaces from real or fictional places and reconfigure and/or re-appropriate to make their own idiosyncratic superstructures.
Now far removed from their origins, these works present something from another world, uniting past and present whilst giving clues to memory, time and place. The language of architecture relies on logic and laws of physics; art on the other hand is often fuelled by paradox, games and contradiction.
This exhibition explores the transformative process personal to these artist’s spatial surfaces and the similarities and dissonances that lie between them and the connecting superstructures of the gallery space in which they are being presented.
Parlour extracts iconic architecture and melds it into an abstracted space of flat geometric forms made up of units of isolated colour.
Easton’s paintings takes fragments from antique wallpaper designs from her home and manipulates the flat organic images and turns them into immersive theatrically lit spaces.
Petry has a different take on reconfiguring terrestrial structure. A collapsed wall made from Murano glass scatters across the gallery floor.
Potamianou explores themes around the art term ‘imaginary museum’. She photographs images of museums, galleries and public institutions and digitally neutralises these interiors to then set her two-dimensional collaged stage sets upon.
Ellis uses found objects and reconfigures them into architectural three-dimensional collages. He sources materials for his ready-mades from his daily life and surroundings.
What is clear is that all the works on display each have an individual language that quietly communicates to each other, reciprocating meaning and an aesthetic language.
South African born London based Artist Selma Parlour completed a PHD at Goldsmith’s. Her paintings are so delicately rendered, they appear drawn or printed. Parlour works with soft films of oil on linen, with the oil binder removed so that colours take on the character of a parched chalk pastel. The result is a warm, tactile surface where colour appears to glow, as if backlit. Current works use repetition, framing and re-framing, creating spatial illusions using trompe l’oeil technique to bend the viewer’s perception of space and fixity. Her preoccupations nod to the most conventional signifiers of art: the frame, surface and colour. She was recently shortlisted for John Moores Painting Prize and is currently showing a site specific installation at the House of St. Barnabas in London.
Five, The Side-ness of In-Out, 2016, oil on linen, 61 x 51 cm
Based in London, artist and curator Bella Easton studied at Winchester and the Royal Academy Schools. Her work has featured in exhibitions around Europe, US and India. She recently exhibited in the John Moores Painting Prize 2016, ENIA Gallery, Athens and Berlin. In her paintings she often returns to chirality, a word used in chemistry to denote the shape of an object whereby it can’t be superimposed directly onto its mirror image. Easton’s work often plays with this symmetry and constructs timeless ethereal fabrications punctuated by a gradation of light overlaid with synthesized lens flare or obscured by blurred voids.
She is guest curator of frac–tured – su–per – struc–tures for Space Station Gallery.
Black Daisy Thicket, 2016, Oil on linen, 56 x 41cm
London based artist Tim Ellis studied at Liverpool John Moores and The Royal Academy. He has exhibited all over the world, from Hong Kong to New York. His painting and sculpture often take found objects and bric-a-brac and alter their forms. His approach combines art and craft, and themes include the primeval need to create order and belong. As a result, works often have a totemic, symbolic feel, where artifice and natural order meet.

Multimedia artist, author and director of MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) in London, Michael Petry studied at Rice University in Houston and London Guildhall. He was the former curator of the Royal Academy Schools Gallery and his work was included in the 2015 Venice Biennale. He was also the first artist in residence at Sir John Soane’s museum and has written numerous books. His installations and performance art takes its inspiration from diverse sources: from Greek mythology to Alan Turing. His Murano glass marbles, part of a larger original structure: Joshua D’s Wall, first shown in 2012 at the Palm Springs Art Museum, features glass stones, each unique, and all made at the Berengo Studio in Venice. The field of stones spills across the museum floor like giant alien marbles. As each stone is sold, the wall dissipates into the world.

An artist and curator based in Athens. Potamianou studied in Athens and Staffordshire. She is an Internationally exhibited artist having shown extensively. Her work ranges from sculpture to film, installation and collage and has been, various European Biennales, Sotheby’s and Bonhams. Recent solo show was ‘On the Origins of Art’, DIENSTGEBÄUDE, Zurich. She has curated more than 45 international exhibitions, including work by Damian Hirst, Joseph Beuys and Peter Greenaway. Her work on show within the frac-tured-su-per-struc-tures exhibition layers artistic references, with a witty irreverence that forces the viewer to rethink the original images she uses.
