&ldquo\;Ecology is at the hear t of this new work. But it was paint\, not politics. The work of man on ear th extends here in a work of painting on canvas.&rdquo\; &ndash\; Zevs

\ n

This summer\, Lazarides will host a new s eries of works by the notorious French artist Zevs\, with his solo exhibiti on: The Big Oil Splash. The artist\, otherwise known as Aguirre Sc hwarz\, will present a series of paintings\, monochromes and sculpture base d on the oil spill thematic.

\n

The pain tings presented in The Big Oil Splash are richly imbued with the artist&rsq uo\;s critical and

\n

anti-authoritarian spirit and are reflective of his graphic vocabulary\, love of film noir\, misappropriations and his attachment to Pop Art and comics. Full of borrowi ngs\, namely from Hockney&rsquo\;s iconic 1967 A Bigger Splash and emblems from major international oil corporations\, the artist tells the captivatin g story of how the oil industry has spilled over into banking\, finance\, s hipping\, foreign policy\, tourism\, arts and leisure since the time of J. D. Rockefeller.

\n

A single sunbed not only exposes the series of monochromes to UV radiation\, but als o unfolds Zevs&rsquo\; meditation on serenity and the intricate dynamics of people\, power\, possessions and pleasures. All of these elements have fac ilitated the artist&rsquo\;s social ascent and his ultimate seclusion from the mundane world of art\, culture\, politics and anything that impedes the peace of mind he for so long has sought for.

About the artist

\n

Zevs

\n

Born in Saverne\, France in 1977\, Aguirre Schwarz founded his alter ego\; Zevs\, after a regional train\, Zeus\, almost cost him his life while he wa s down in the Metro.

\n

Best known for his &lsquo\;liquidation&rsquo\; technique\, Zevs famously distor ts recognisable images and regularly sabotages the logos of major brands an d businesses in an attempt to subvert and critique twenty-first century con sumer-driven culture.

\n

Wor king alongside French artists\, such as André\; and Invader\, in the latter part of the 1990&rsquo\;s Zevs became one of the leading figures tha t pioneered the French street art scene. His significant acts of vandalism vary from the &lsquo\;visual kidnapping&rsquo\; of a woman from a German La vazza billboard in 2002 to the liquidated Chanel logo daubed over a Giorgio Armani storefront in Hong Kong that ultimately led to his arrest in 2009.< /p>\n

He has participated extensively in in ternational performances and exhibitions\, including solo shows at Ny Carls berg Glyptothek Museum (Denmark)\, CCA Andratx foundation (Spain) and an up coming exhibition at Chateau de Vincennes (France).

Timothy Taylor is delighted to announce its summer exhibition by Armen Eloyan\, entitled \;Garden . This is the artist&rsquo\;s third exhibition with the gallery\, and his first solo exhibition in the UK since 2009.

\n

Eloyan&rsquo\;s images &ndash\; whether in painting\, illustrati on or sculpture &ndash\; draw from broad pop-cultural references that can b e universally read\, regardless of one&rsquo\;s cultural background or lang uage constraints. The artist&rsquo\;s use of humour to confront broadly exi stential problems makes his work both immediately accessible and simultaneo usly unsettling. Similarly\, Eloyan&rsquo\;s titles are either entirely amb iguous or absolutely descriptive. For example\, the watercolour series\,A while ago the elephant ordered the ants to make him a burger \; (2009) includes images of wooden doors\, cigarettes\, obscure cartoonish fi gures and dismembered body parts\, while \;Man Dressed as a Wolf \;(2007) is a painting of a man dressed as a wolf. Furthering these juxtapositions\, Eloyan&rsquo\;s imagery is both immediately identifiable & ndash\; Donald Duck\, Mickey Mouse\, a man dressed as a wolf &ndash\; and y et as he draws from such wide and varied sources\, both real and imagined\, these seemingly singular characters are in fact schizophrenic assemblages. In this sense\, Eloyan&rsquo\;s works flirt with bi-polar positions\, both conceptually and formally: funny\, melancholy\, lighthearted\, serious\, f igurative\, abstract\, descriptive\, ambiguous.

\n

Garden \;brings together new large-scale paintings with bronze sculptures\, the artist&rsquo\;s first in the medium. Using the concept of a garden as a device to contain disparate works\, the exhibitio n exemplifies the artist&rsquo\;s diverse practice.

\n

Each of the three paintings in \;Garden \;d emonstrates Eloyan&rsquo\;s technical dexterity\, while addressing a common theme from different points of view. For example\, in \;Daily Stri ps \;(2016)\, Eloyan&rsquo\;s comic-influenced illustrations are s caled up to massive proportions\, as daily news headlines are conflated wit h comic strip scenes\, personal anecdotes and prevalent global issues.  \;Portrait 1 \;(2016) is equally personal and far reaching\, w ith pentimento revealing multiple faces and images beyond the singular surf ace figure &ndash\; a self-portrait of the artist as well as the Everyman.< /p>\n

The suite of bronzes highlights Eloya n&rsquo\;s signature imagery by bringing forth recurring images from the ar tist&rsquo\;s oeuvre into the three-dimensional gallery space\, including e ggs\, sunsets and anthropomorphic animations. Specifically\, these works re semble fragments often seen in the artist&rsquo\;s comic-book illustrations .

\n

Eloyan&rsquo\;s works engage art hi story through key figures spanning Europe and the United States\, such as P hilip Guston\, Paul McCarthy\, and of course Jean Dubuffet\, whose exhibiti on of painting and sculpture immediately preceded Eloyan&rsquo\;s \;Garden.

\n

Armen Eloyan was born i n Armenia in 1966. He studied at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam\, graduatin g in 2005. His works have been exhibited internationally\, including\, M&nb sp\;HKA\, Antwerp\; Groeningemuseum\, Bruges\; ShanghART Gallery\, Shanghai \; and Parasol Unit Foundation for Contemporary Art\, London. He lives and works in Zurich.

TINTYPE is pleased to announce that Lucia Quevedo&rsquo\;s < em>You&rsquo\;ll thank me later\, promise is this year&rsquo\;s Summer Window Installation\, on view during the gallery's summer break.

\n

I n her sculptural work\, Lucia Quevedo adopts the traits of cartoons and adv erts\, with commonplace food products such as cheese and sliced meat presen ted as absurd\, curious wonders.

\n

In You'll thank me later\, pro mise Quevedo portrays cold-cut meat - slices of chorizo and salami so overly familiar that we tend to overlook their graphic quality. Their shade s of pink and white are mimicked through the artist's use of silicon\, tran sforming the sausage's texture into visual patterns much like a mosaic or s tained glass.

This is the first major retrospective of Terence Donovan (19 36 - 1996) one of the foremost photographers of his generation.

\n

Donovan rose to prominence in London as part of a post- war renaissance of the creative industries and came to represent a new force in fashion and\, later\, advertising and portrait photography. He operated at the heart of London&rsquo\;s swinging sixties\, socialising wi th and incisively capturing the scene&rsquo\;s chief protagonists and actor s. Gifted with an unerring eye for the iconic\, Donovan was a master crafts man commanding both the technical and compositional to redefine studio phot ography.

\n

The exhibition comprises a c ompelling mix of classic and well-known vintage prints as well as previousl y unpublished material and a selection of his video works. Rare samples of ephemera including magazine spreads\, contact sheets and the photographer&r squo\;s treasured cameras will also be on display. In addition\, Donovan&rs quo\;s studio notes\, previously unseen sketches and diaries will offer aud iences privileged access to his creative process.

From studio portraiture to str eet photography\, this exhibition brings together a group of geographically and historically diverse photographers whose imagery explores black mascul inity as performance\, as play\, as invention - in particular through the a doption of a dandy-esque persona.

\n

In the early 21st century\, black men are among the most influential trendsett ers in fashion\, music and global style culture. Yet high visibility for bl ack men is matched by high vulnerability - as illustrated by disproportiona te rates of arrest and incarceration for black men in the UK and USA.

\n

Made You Look&nb sp\;explores dandyism as radical personal politics\, a willed flamboyance t hat flies in the face of conventional constructions of the black masculine. It proposes that the black &lsquo\;dandy&rsquo\;\, with his extravagant em phasis on dress foregrounds a hyper-visible identity which counters the hei ghted vulnerability\, the result of a charged history of objectification. I n the context of this exhibition\, dandyism isn&rsquo\;t simply about sharp dressing but rather\, consciously problematising ideas of male identity th rough dress or deportment that is arresting\, provocative\, louche\, camp a nd gloriously assertive.

\n

The exhibiti on is curated by Ekow Eshun and features works from the Larry Dunstan Archi ve\, Liz Johnson Artur\, Samuel Fosso\, \; Hassan Hajjaj \, Colin Jones \, Isaac Julien\, Kristin-Lee Moolman\, Jeffrey Henson Scales and Malick Si dibé\;.

In Erik Lindman&rsquo\;s new works\, the artist creates fres h abstract forms with a fine attunement to painterly details\, constellated around various found surfaces and their treatment as compositional element s\, surfaces\, and supports. The majority of these new works are on primed or linen-wrapped panel that are affixed with thin sheets of aluminum or ste el sheetmetal\, which are disguised and revealed to varying degrees by the application of paint on and around them. Colors and forms tend to accrete i n the center of the painting\, framed by white or unpainted space.
