First Past the Post! Goldfactory at The Post Office 2009


First Past the Post is a carefully chosen selection of works from GF artists and some who are new to GF.

Following the closure of the project space several artists who were scheduled to develop new projects with us had to be informed that this was no longer possible. GF has now been able to make amends by including them in this show.

This is the first exhibition in this new space which opens on November 11th it is anticipated that throughout the exhibition period new work will arrive at the gallery and replace the existing work (or in a more hopeful manner replace the work that has been sold).

At the end of this exhibition much of the work will be taken to Bank Street Arts in Sheffield and be shown as part of the Big Hang. GF has a developing relationship with Bank Street Arts which we hope will flourish over the forthcoming year.

Goldfactory has been looking at numerous new possibilities for development in particular international projects with a gallery in Berlin and an exchange programme with an arts collective in Sao Paulo in Brazil.

GF keeps on shining!

Watch this space….

Research Space 08: Moogee




”Belcher is different again, physician here showing rough cartoons whose hero is Moogee the Art Dog, ampoule wandering through the minefield of the contemporary art establishment. The cartoons are openly hostile rather than merely satirical, the tickboxy culture brutally castigated by Belcher’s spleen probably deserving such a good savaging “

Once in high summer I listened to a rare stranger from the eastern half of Europe singing in a Northamptonshire wood.

He performs drone improvisations to live audiences and recently began an ongoing series of works on the invention of the time machine. Phillip collaborates with many artists and he was a founder and core member of Reactor 2002~07.

Research Space 06: Geoff Litherland


I am very conscious of the difference between rational thought, sale chance and the exercise of instinct or intuition within the creative process of painting, cialis and have sought ways in which all three can be employed together in forming images.The work explores the material identity and language of abstract painting, questioning its histories and boundaries, much like the work of contemporary painters, Fabian Marcaccio, Beatriz Milhaze and Jonathan Lasker. My recent paintings explore how meaning can be impregnated in the way paint is applied, aiming to create subtle narratives for the viewer to decipher.
