20140709102918-caroline_jane_harris_-_limb Watchlist Artist: Caroline Jane Harris  
by
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 a... [more]

20120207085639-2 The Human Endeavour: 'Bauhaus: Art as Life' at the Barbican  
by
Anni Albers, Josef Albers, Marianne Brandt, Marcel Breuer, Walter Gropius, Johannes Itten, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Hannes Meyer, László Moholy-Nagy, Gunta Stölzl, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe at Barbican Art Gallery May 3rd, 2012 - August 12th, 2012
Posted 8/19/12

All too frequently the presentation and packaging of the Bauhaus to audiences has been to focus on the leading male quartet of Gropius, van der Rohe, Breuer and Meyer as the pioneers of a cold, precise, machine-driven sect whose tubular chairs and avant-garde works became stereotypical hallmarks of a ‘bourgeois’ European formalism. Barbican’s ‘Bauhaus: Art as life’ aims to inject the forgotten human endeavour and encounters that took place at Weimar and Dessau, back at the centre of the school’s... [more]

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]

Ellipsis_image_block_copy Ellipsis - into the unsayable.  
by
Sonia Ali, Maxime Angel, Laura Bushell, Ewan Eason, Matthew Holder, Katie Honan, Lucinda Lloyd, Lucy Whitford at Debut Contemporary July 23rd, 2010 - July 29th, 2010
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]

Untitledsfyhtrferg Anish Kapoor at Royal Academy of Arts

Anish Kapoor at Royal Academy of Arts September 26th, 2009 - December 11th, 2009
Posted 9/2/12

As the first living artist to land a solo show at the Royal Academy, Anish Kapoor’s self-appellated show is an incredibly daring, sensory, and truly contemporary display of the artist’s oeuvre and sculpture today. Whilst you endure the overwhelming queues outside, the jagged tower of shiny metal spheres, Tall tree and the eye - a new sculpture provided for the exhibit - whets your appetite for the ensuing unctuous crimson wax and grey sludge and slither, spliced with wide concave and convex surfaces...

Melissa Marks at Bloomberg Space September 10th, 2009 - September 26th, 2009
Posted 9/22/09

Melissa Marks' work, Adventures of Volitia: Expulsion from Paradise, currently up at Bloomberg SPACE is inspiring, stunningly beautiful and well worth the visit. The sprawling color drawings pull the viewer around the space, their saturated colors and complex narrative elements provide an intensity and depth that pulls one in and won't let go. Complementing these eleven power-filled drawings is a series of ceiling-height, black and white wall drawings, culminating in a 22-foot high, 43-foot wide epic. These drawing... [more]
