Gallery Different goes WILD at the HENLEY FESTIVAL this September
The Henley Festival is a celebration of art in its widest sense – music, performance, comedy and of course visual art. For anyone who has never attended – it is quite an experience offering black tie evening events over 5 days and featuring some of the biggest global stars.
This year Gallery Different presents WILD – 5 artists whose work beautifully captures the magnificence and beauty of the natural world.
Award winning sculptor Adam Binder and painter Tara Winona have both worked with conservationists to highlight the plight of endangered species. Their work often evokes an emotional response, but also delights.

Making a big impact at this year’s festival will be Boris – an Adam Binder 12-foot bronze polar bear who will welcome festival goers – and who is looking for a new home!
Accompanying Boris is a new series of polar bear sculptures depicting this iconic animal. Adam is also known for his delicate sculptures of garden birds and domestic wildlife. He expertly captures the essence of the animal, with no compromise on the sculptural form. Working in fine art limited editions, his work is highly collectible.

Tara Winona works between her studios in London and Sydney. Her first major solo exhibition in 2018 was a sell-out show. Her second due for 2020 has for obvious reasons been postponed until next year – so her new work is being launched at the festival as part of WILD.
Her Blue Nature series focuses on the wildlife of the United Kingdom and alongside these, the Treasure Series depicts those animals in danger of extinction. Whilst the paintings perfectly capture her subjects, her work is also autobiographical, charting emotional moments in her own life.

The Scottish Borders are the inspiration for South African born artist Eben Rautenbach. Eben moved to Scotland a few years ago and fell in love with the region. Originally a graffiti artist, he now uses pyrography (freehand wood burning) to produce astoundingly detailed line drawings which are burnt into beautiful, handpicked pieces of wood.
Eben integrates the natural lines of the wood into his images and often works with other craftsmen – as is the case with the fabulous handmade surfboard that provides the canvas for his Monarch of the Glen.

Stephen Page is fascinated with the relationship between man and beast – the long history from cave paintings to contemporary imagery – his work has a timeless quality to it. He takes away any extraneous information – reducing the form to its essence. He too hand patinates the bronze – but rather than naturalistic colour, the works have rich block colour patinas.

The soft and sensitive medium of willow charcoal is the choice for Rebecca Ball. Her depictions are detailed and range from extremely affordable intimate sketches to the flourish of her full-length Ostrich as it strides towards you. She captures the spirit and personality of her subject. This will be her first exhibition with Gallery Different – but assuredly not her last.
Full catalogue is available on request. The gallery still has limited tickets available for the festival – why not take a flight and then join the Gallery for a glass of bubbly and a great evening of entertainment? Contact them for more information.
