Watchlist: Richard Galpin  
by
9/29/11 Posted 9/29/11

(Image: Richard Galpin, Splinter Cell III, Peeled Photograph,100 X 87 cm, 2009/2010; © Richard Galpin) Richard Galpin (b. 1975, Cambridgeshire, UK) Richard Galpin’s complex art works are derived from the artist's own photographs of chaotic cityscapes. Using only a scalpel Galpin intricately scores and peels away the emulsion from the surface of the photograph to produce a radical revision of the urban form. The artist allows himself no collaging, or additions of any kind - each delicate work... [more]

Posted 9/21/11

Focused on the element of air, but notdirectly and straightforward,... [more]

20110812110323-387 States of Departure: Progressives to Modern Day  
by
K. Laxma Goud, M.F. Husain, Paresh Maity, NALINI MALINI, Akbar Padamsee, Jamini Roy, F.N. Souza at AICON GALLERY - London August 18th, 2011 - September 10th, 2011
Posted 8/29/12

Presenting 33 works on paper, this is a small, unusual show with an ambitious, but ambiguous title. 'States of Departure: Progressives to Modern Day’ forgets to clarify exactly what the 'Progressives' were trying to escape, and by what means was their output to be understood as 'progressive'. The result of this lack of engagement, therefore, presents a bizarre deadlock between the verbal summation and the physical content; the selection offered here largely contains conventional figurative and l...

(Image: Andrew Grassie, Archive: after Stephan Balkenhol's 'Drei Grosse Frauenakte' installation, 1993, 2010, tempera on paper on board, 20,9 x 14,2 cm; © Johnen Galerie) Andrew Grassie (b. 1966, Edinburgh, United Kingdom) Andrew Grassie is a painter whose works engage with complex ideas. Grassie’s starting point is a re-examination of the fundamental question of what to paint. He turns this question on its head, producing paintings which present a series of compelling propositions about paint... [more]

Maria Chevska: On Our London Watchlist  
by
3/25/11 Posted 3/25/11

(Image: Maria Chevska, Eye of the Blackbird, 2011; © Tank Gallery, London) Maria Chevska (b. 1948, Oxford, England) Maria Chevska’s painted cobblestones refer to the materiality of the street. Retrieved from just below the surface of the road, these slightly subterranean objects have considerable gravity as paintings. The painted stripes on the surface of the stones are records of palettes used on her main body of paintings. The cobblestones therefore act as a storage or file-code of colours.... [more]

(Image: Michael Landy, Art Bin; © Michael Landy) Michael Landy (b. 1963, London, UK) A member of the celebrated generation of Young British Artists, Michael Landy distanced himself from the material success that came to define his counterparts when he systematically catalogued and destroyed each of his more than 7,000 personal possessions in 2001. Break Down saw the destruction of everything from childhood photographs to kitchen utensils and socks, leaving the artist with no material m... [more]

Flowers gallery in the heart of the west end currently has not one but two intriguing  exhibitions on at the moment. When other galleries are slowing down in the summer months or just showing works they have in stock flowers gallery is coming alive (quite literally with some of the pieces of animated works).                 On the ground level is a show that any lover of photography should see. It has iconic and resonating images from Edward Burtynsky, Nadav Kander & Robert Polidori. The paint... [more]

Group Show at Flowers | Kingsland Road July 2nd, 2010 - July 24th, 2010
Posted 7/30/10

What a Relief incorporated a range of works by various artists, some very contemporary. All were linked by containing an element of 'relief' from the wall, but still being on the wall, thus occupying a space somewhere between painting and sculpture. The show was well conceived and curated, with a very strong selection of artwork on display. Highly recommended. [more]

Ellipsis_image_block_copy Ellipsis - into the unsayable.

Posted 7/26/10

A fascinating and exciting show with eight new artists exploring 'what's unsaid.' Avoiding shock and obvious political messaging, each artist respects the mute quality of art, it's form of speechlessness and silent writing to probe the limits of the sayable - whether in terms of language and indentity, abstract qualities of fate or time, or the language of pencil, paper, paint, neon and latex. Materials are to the fore here (and perhaps at time an echo of arte povera) and the curators are to be... [more]

Plplplp Art Review: Aviary  
by
Céleste Boursier-Mougenot at Barbican Art Gallery February 27th, 2010 - May 23rd, 2010
Posted 4/19/10

In a gloriously original and creative move, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot’s first UK solo exhibition taps into an audiovisual buffet of nature.  At the Barbican’s ‘Aviary’, visitors find themselves unwitting participants in a dance of nature as birds ‘perform’ in an art installation. A dark space opens into a cheerful seaside promenade, complete with wooden decking and islands of sand and grass.  Curiously, Les Paul guitars, bass, and cymbals rest in these spaces.  As your senses adjust to the surro...
