Malca Schotten – Pictures From an Exhibition

Cathedral Quarter

We are very excited to welcome back Malca Schotten for 4th solo exhibition at Mandell’s Gallery.

Raised in London, Schotten is a Norwich based artist renowned for her huge, energetic drawings. It is unsurprising she was taught by Anish Kapoor at the Hornsey College of Art- her weighted, sculptural figures transcend the depth of paper. Schotten’s subjects have included skilled rural craftsmen, colossal suburban trees, and her personal journey through pregnancy.

Over the last two years, Schotten has spent months in multiple exhibitions, at The Sainsbury Centre in her role as a gallery invigilator. Her new work is inspired by her time observing, (sketching when possible) and communicating with visitors to the exhibitions. With this work, Schotten incorporates her belief that art in all its forms is integral to our existence. “My aim is to create images that shine a spotlight on the immense value of the gallery/museum experience. These are important spaces connecting people with creativity, expression, history, and each other.” Malca Schotten

‘Our government devalues creative disciplines, eager to suck funding from the cultural resource that underpins our humanity. Soon art could become inaccessible, making exhibition spaces more precious than ever’. Rosie Kyrin-White, Arts editor Concrete magazine.

Open Tuesday – Saturday 10am-5pm.
