London exhibition for Hastings Project Arts’ Sharif Persaud

There is much to love about Hastings and St Leonards: not least the seaside and creativity here, but also the sense of community and support of people who are less well off or generally find life challenging. Project Art Works is a very special organisation that works creatively alongside people with complex needs. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths met up with creative director Tim Corrigan to talk about one of their artists/makers, Sharif Persaud, who has an exhibition of his work in London.

Crime detectives in fiction are, in the main, universally flawed: booze, womanising, personality disorders are rife. And those are the men. There is also a strong posse of women detectives with their own issues and another one is joining the throng; Elvira Slate. She is sassy, stylish, a criminal, bright and living in 1940s jazz age and time of the glamorous Hollywood super stardom. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths met up with Helen Jacey, Elvira’s creator to talk about her and the wonderful noir world of sleuthdom.

Australian summer blows into St Leonards

On these rainy, grey days there is an exuberant exhibition in St Leonards that lights the day. Summer has blown into the Solaris Gallery:  Susan Taylor – Australian Summer.  HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths was considerably cheered by the images that celebrate shapes, colour and nature with flowing complex shades and tones that lighten the dreariness of English winter.

A photographic walk through Brexit land

Ian Land has produced a formidable body of landscapes, shaped and formed by us, the British. He decided to take his camera for a walk – the coastal route from Hastings to London – and the results are now on display in an exhibition at Hastings Arts Forum. It is a desolate, gloomy marginal area – the end of England. And so it appears to be turning out, for those born and bred here who feel European and want to remain so. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths was impressed by the exhibition’s unflinching honesty; sometimes to the point where you want to look away as he captures the spirit of England – and it isn’t a very edifying sight.

Patrick Altes urges tolerance at Wave of Dreams gallery

A Wave of Dreams gallery is making its mark with its programming of innovative artists in St Leonards. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths was intrigued when she walked into its latest show, Tolerance by international artist Patrick Altes. The images are seemingly primitive, simple figures, but the work is complex as he digs deep into his personal history.
