20150322162836-plat_6 Private and Confidential  
by
Mark Stammers at AE Contemporary Art Gallery June 27th - July 18th
Posted 6/30/15

This exhibition is called Private and Confidential, the pieces are beautifully framed prints, that vibrate with luminous colour and luscious brush strokes, these seductive effects give a warm and enticing atmosphere to the imagery, but underneath is a certain and sudden shock as the mind realises the figurative imagery that challenges the imagination and beckons satire and paradox, and the cartoon, these seem to rent through the surface of appearances.....perhaps to comfort the knowing viewer wi...

The London Festival of Architecture at Forman's Smokehouse Gallery June 26th - June 29th
Posted 6/17/15

International artist Tom Estes has been invited by curator Rebecca Feiner to act as Honorary Mayor of DEN-City1. Estes describes himself as a “Sci-fi inspired Carnival Sideshow Conceptualist, combining a bare-bones formal conceptualism with an eternally adolescent, DIY comic-prank approach”. Organised with Middlesex University, DEN-City1 is part of The London Festival of Architecture, a month long celebration of architectural experimentation, thinking and practice. I’ m sure I... [more]

Ello: Is it Good for Artists?  
by
9/29/14 Posted 9/29/14

We hate Facebook, but we use it anyways. Its distressing “real name” policy, emotional manipulation for research and the extortion of revenue from small businesses, magazines, non-profits, etc who now must pony up in order for their posts to show in more than 10% of their own fans’ feeds has compounded to make the behemoth social network universally reviled. Unfortunately, no new social media network has come along to take its place. Along comes Ello. Last week, ironically, Twi... [more]

(Image: Iori Endo, Untitled - Lumière, 2014, mixed media on wood, 24 x 24 in.; © Iori Endo) Iori Endo (b. 1987, Tokyo) I am interested in the idea of what makes it a ‘painting.’ My current investigation is to go beyond the physical limitation of canvas, and challenge the boundaries of the traditional understanding of what paintings may be. With emphasis in materiality and physicality, my approach to materials is both controlling and liberated - using its flexibility and... [more]

(Image: Iliana Tosheva, Close to Nowhere (Field 101), 13/07/2013, Oil on Paper, 12 X 12 X 0.1 Inches; ©  Iliana Tosheva)   Iliana Tosheva (lives in London) As a person and creator I dislike staying the same size. What has permanently inspired me over the years has always been a fleeting image of a less traditional shape, texture or colour or a blend of the three put together that will take my breath away on a sentimental journey ‘back to nature’ and, most importantly to me, on a journey back to who I have n...

Caroline Jane Harris at Scream 7/9/14 Posted 7/9/14

Scream are proud to present the first solo exhibition by young British artist Caroline Jane Harris. The artist explores the complexities of nature through a labour-intensive paper-cutting technique. Harris is inspired by the natural world and is conscious of the strong yet subtle links between natural life forms and us. She explores the intricacy and beauty of nature, which echo human and man-made systems, by responding to visual phenomena such as geometric, linear and circular motifs found in... [more]

(Image: Dale Wilson, Sixty Minutes Well Spent #1, 2014, Audio-tape on Board, 84 X 84 X 1.8 Cms; © Dale Wilson) Dale Wilson (b. 1985, Cape Town) My work explores tensions between the obsolete and the reclaimable, the digital and the analogue, the machine-made and the man-made. Strands of audiotape are arranged, overlaid and applied to wooden boards in industrial and decorative motifs, evoking the look of machine printed vinyl sheets. This machine-made aesthetic is at odds with the stead... [more]

Shaan Syed, The Cost of Living, 87.9 × 48 cm, 2014, via artsy.net How many artists are starving? In the UK, probably most.

Shaun McDowell at Hannah Barry Gallery 5/18/14 Posted 5/18/14

"These works speak a language of colour and tell tales of passion ­ the heroics of desire" Shaun McDowell is an accomplished colourist and mark maker. In MOONS MASKS BIRDS DEMONS, he presents a series of seventeen paintings, the result of an extended stay in Tuscany over the course of last summer. There, Shaun was afforded the time and space to work on all the pictures simultaneously, making each individual mark instinctively and incisively. These paintings constitute a potent representati...

Moyra Davey at Camden Arts Centre April 11th, 2014 - June 29th, 2014
Posted 5/12/14

Phillip Lai and Moyra Davey make a neat double act. At first glance their parallel solo shows at Camden Arts Centre seem worlds apart: Davey's practice is highly personal and heavily image-based, clinging to the walls; Lai's language is sculptural and industrial. Yet this formal disparity masks a shared thematic interest in processes of production, dispersal, displacement, interpretation, and decay. Davey's exhibition, life without sheets of paper to be scribbled on is masterpiece comprises multiple attempts to... [more]

(Image: Simona Ruscheva, out, 2012, Oil on Canvas, 50 X 70 X 2 Centimeters; © Simona Ruscheva) Simona Ruscheva (b. 1989, Yambol, Bulgaria) I have always been fascinated by horned animals, especially goats, occurring mostly as part of occult rituals and for me they have always had some ethereal and peculiar radiation, as they belong to something slightly different from our world. So this feeling combined with my endless love to human body, as perfect as it is, comes out from me as an... [more]
