In the tradition of the 19th century Parisian Salon des Refusés, Happenstance Art & Framing Gallery presents the 9th Salon des Refusés: Exhibition of Artworks Refused from the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

Our annual extravaganza of artworks missed, unappreciated, misunderstood or sacrificed at the last minute by the Royal Academy Selection Commitee will this year feature over 100 UK and international creators across a range of art forms. This is a unique chance to appreciate non-establishment and democratic art.

Visitors are invited to vote for their favourite works with winners announced at the exhibition’s finale on Saturday afternoon.

#1 of TOP 12 Artworks of Salon des Refusés 2017

Based on general public votes.

#1 – ‘The Imaginary Iceberg’ by Yufei Li.

Digital print, 50x70cm, 2017.

01 - Yufei Li - Iceberg_YL_1920
#1 of TOP 12 Artworks of Salon des Refusés 2017 – ‘The Imaginary Iceberg’ by Yufei Li.

The title is adopted from Elizabeth Bishop’s poem. A fragile iceberg is reconstructed in the fictional construction drawing, with our emotional attachment to the vanished physical landscapes. It is the virtual representation in this digital era of our aesthetic desire of nature.
About the Artist:
Yufei is a graphic and architectural designer. Flitting between China, Singapore and the United Kingdom for the past twelve years, her interests fall into narrative cartography and line drawing as a form of revealing remote and imaginary landscapes. She studied architecture at the Architectural Association and is currently based in London.

Escape
  #2 of TOP 12 Artworks of Salon des Refusés 2017 – ‘Escape’ by Richard Brayshaw.

‘In general I am interrogating how we perceive our constructed spaces, both urban and rural, their different characteristics, their influence on our sense of self and our position in the world as well as their psychological effects in exposing our insecurities and vulnerability.

This particular image was made by combing 2 images. It was made as part of a project I am involved with. The group 6plus2 is working on a project called Hold. It is a site responsive project set in the now empty Petersfield police station. Part of my response to being in the cell was to feel trapped and want to escape. This image is a combination of the physical containment of the cell brick wall with the mental escape of imagining a seascape.’ (Richard Brayshaw)

#3 – ‘Rokit Girl’ by Heloise Bergman.

C-type Print, 40x50cm, 2014.

03 - Heloise Bergman 40x50cm
#3 of TOP 12 Artworks of Salon des Refusés 2017 – ‘Rokit Girl’ by Heloise Bergman.

Heloise Bergman is a lens based artist from New Zealand.

‘Rokit Girl was inspired by infatuation with the Dutch Masters. Vermeer’s female subjects were portrayed occupied by houshold errands, often with an intensity that elevates the everyday to something more profound. Almost a decisive moment. Over three hundred years later, Rokit Girl works in Brick Lane and I capture her between customers. She embodies an ephemeral look, gender fluid, time fluid; but when she meets my eyes across the shop, it feels like another decisive moment.’ (Heloise Bergman)

#6 – ‘The balcony of a high-rise apartment block in Eastern Europe’ by Timothy Percival.

Acryluic on paper,  32x24cm, 2016.

#6 of TOP 12 Artworks of Salon des Refuses 2017 – ‘The balcony of a high-rise apartment block in Eastern Europe’ by Timothy Percival.

Presenting an ethereal view, Percival’s work is both introvert and romanticised; forms are constructed from a haven of deep, personal shadows, and windows burnt in light offer the only anchor to the outside world. Whilst constructed from an architectural standpoint, it is the impact of such environments that form the subject of the work.
