Thank you to all of those who came to visit us at Black Maria: A major new commission by Richard Wentworth & Gruppe. An installation of Fee Greening’s illustrations created a visual theatre in which to contemplate the act of dreaming, the perfect backdrop to the Little Theatre of Dolls puppet performance of ‘The Holy Dress’.
Between Dreams was a pre-curosr to a group exhibition, ‘In Dreams’ opening May 30th at the Cob Gallery in collaboration with Guts for Garters: a Cob & Guts production.
A selection of Greening’s work is available from Cob Shop.

The Cob Gallery is excited to announce our first collaboration with The Salon Club in Mayfair, ‘Between Dreams’, featuring the work of three female artists Becky Allen, Fee Greening & Kate Street.
Allen’s work is characterised by intricate line drawings of the things we cannot see. With extreme detail and a fascination of the close-up, she looks beyond that which is visible and presents another way of seeing. The themes encountered in her work originated from a fascination in our states of consciousness, with particular focus into the sleep state. Using neurological data such as REM activity, she interprets the objective into a subjective response to suggest the content of our dreams. Allen graduated from Camberwell College of Art in 2011 and is currently midway through the MA programme at the Royal College of Art.
Working primarily in pen and ink, Fee Greening’s work is concerned with the relationships between characters, often using literature as an inspiration. Presently her work focuses on neurological sleeping disorders and the moments between waking and sleeping. In contrast to Allen’s work, Greening explores an imaginary narrative from this scientific standpoint. Greening graduated from Central St. Martin’s in 2012 and is about to begin the MA programme at the Royal College of Art.
Kate Street’s The Story of Orchis In Three Parts, references the ancient Greek belief that orchids spring from the spilt semen of mating animals. The surreal drawings evoke a dreamscape where the botanical and the human entwine. The fecund orchids spring from human hearts, inviting us to consider the link between desire and mortality, sex and the eternal sleep of death. Street graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2004 and has exhibited internationally, including the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome and the Torrance Art Museum in California.
