Artist Talk with Jennifer Cronin. As part of Dreaming in the Doldrums Solo Exhibition by Jennifer Cronin

Artist Talk with Jennifer Cronin

Artist Talk with Jennifer Cronin

33 Contemporary Gallery is pleased to present a lively conversation with Chicago based artist Jennifer Cronin.

Time passes. Days come and go. At some point, routine can creep in, grabbing a tight hold of our lives. And as time ticks by, sometimes it can seem as though we are not moving. As if everything is frozen, motionless and entangled in a humdrum existence.

It can be difficult to remain interested, excited, engaged, and true to oneself amidst the backdrop of routine. Dreaming in the Doldrums is about personal fantasy and escape amidst everyday experience. It is a reimagining of everyday life into something more playful, dramatic, and true.

In many of these paintings, the figure struggles to make sense of the outside world and its inconsistencies, with painterly abstractions illustrating an estranged, complicated, and sometimes humorous relationship with the environment. The paintings entitled Customer Service reflect the beauty of our dreams and aspirations, and the relentless hope and optimism that we all hold amidst setbacks and frustrations. These images juxtapose worn-down service workers with images that represent thoughts, escapes, fantasies, or illustrations of who they are and what actually matters to them. These portraits put the customer service worker on a pedestal that unfortunately isn’t often there in real life, transforming the hardened service worker into a cherished object and showing that there is often more than meets the eye. It is about the beauty that exists in the human mind, and the persistence of the human spirit.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
