Marlborough Fine Art is please d to announce an exhibition of new work by Paula Rego. The exhibition compr ises three new series of pastels and watercolours. Each series explores a s eparate and compelling story that is concerned with and inspired by Portuga l\, the place of Rego&rsquo\;s birth.

\n

The Last King of Portugal\, after which the exhibition is named\, is a series of pastels focusing on the life of Manuel II\, who was crowned king in 1908 at the age of 19 following the assassination of his father Ki ng Carlos I. He was known as The Patriot and his reign lasted only two years\, ending in 1910 with the Republican revolution and resultant di ssolution of the monarchy. He fled to Britain\, where he remained in exile for the rest of his life. He married the Princess Augusta Victoria of Hohen zollern-Sigmaringen and they lived together in Twickenham until his death i n 1932. Manuel did not return to Portugal in his lifetime but a Lisbon stat e funeral was authorised by Prime Minister Antonio Oliveira de Salazar.&nbs p\;

\n

The second series of paintings is based on The Relic\, an 1887 novel by Portuguese author Eç\ ;a de Queiró\;z\, which tells the story of anti-hero Teodorico Raposo who deceives his wealthy\, pious aunt in order to ensure her riches are be queathed to him. To please his aunt and to rid himself of his unfaithful mi stress\, he embarks on a journey to the Holy Land in search of the religiou s relic after which the series is named. The author has always been one of Paula Rego&rsquo\;s favourite Portuguese novelists. Another one of his nove ls\, The Sins of \;Father Amaro\, was the subject of one of her finest series of pastels\, which was exhibited at the Dulwich Pi cture Gallery in 1998.

\n

For the third group of works Paula Rego illustrates a new book in which her daughter Caro line Willing retells the traditional folktale Stone Soup\, which h as existed in numerous incarnations around the world for centuries. In it a young female protagonist saves herself from starvation by outwitting a gro up of villagers into providing her with ingredients for a soup that in the end is able to feed them all. Rego and Willing&rsquo\;s version is re-imagi ned in a new context by thirteen watercolour and ink paintings that are sug gestive of Portuguese landscapes and architecture. Much of Rego&rsquo\;s wo rk concerns folk tales\, their consistent ability to endure and renew. In t hese works\, a cast of expressive figures negotiate the boundary between ca ricature and figurative abstraction in a manner that is typical of Rego&rsq uo\;s double-edged satirical style. The frequent inclusion of animal figure s in the works also provides compelling and ambiguous foils to the human ca st.

\n

The exhibition will coincide with a publication of Stone Soup by the Enitharmon Press and Marlborou gh will publish a fully illustrated catalogue of the exhibition.

\n



The opening will coincide with the launch of Paula Rego's new artist's book \;Stone Soup\, with t ext by Cas Willing and published by Enitharmon Editions. \;RSVP

Continuum of Ceas eless Change features the work of twelve London-based artists working in a variety of media\, selected by painter Laura Smith. The exhibition is based around the idea that actions are left exposed when works of art are c reated.  \;Each of the works on show will testify to some past impulse or physical happening\, or else will contain within itself an ongoing force . \; \;
\n
\n

The curators challenge us to imagine these works as moments in what they describe as a &lsquo\;continuum of ceaseless change&rsquo\;\, and to think about how they relate to wider issues\, such as the primitive desire for touch in a post-digital culture or artists&rsquo\; practices rel ating to the body.

Andrew Mummery is pleased to a nnounce the opening of an exhibition that brings together for the first tim e the work of artists Nogah Engler and Ori Gersht. Engler&rsquo\;s painting s and Gersht&rsquo\;s photographs reflect on how art addresses themes of hi story and memory.

Nogah Engler&rsquo\;s paintings contain echoes of the landscape around the town of Kosov in what is now Ukraine. Between 1941 and 1942 almost the entire Jewish population of the town and the surro unding area were murdered following the Nazi invasion and occupation of Pol and. Among the very few survivors were Engler&rsquo\;s father Gideon\, then 6 years old\, and her grandfather Baruch\, who wrote two accounts of the m assacres. In 2005\, having grown up with these accounts and her father&rsqu o\;s memories\, Engler made the journey to Kosov in search of the places wh ere her father and grandfather had hidden to escape the death squads. The p aintings that have resulted from this visit are reflections on the meaning of landscape and memory\, the complex relationship between past and present time\, and how the work of art can mediate between the two.

The overall impression given by Engler&rsquo\;s paintings is that we are looki ng at fragments of memory\, both personal and collective. Her works contain open and enclosed spaces and she employs combinations of different perspec tives that mix near and far. These elements function both formally and meta phorically. There is a careful juxtaposition of areas full of realistic det ail with more abstract gestures\, paint that is both broadly and meticulous ly applied\, painted surfaces that shift and change in density and degrees of opacity. Engler has talked of her interest in the ways that modern techn ology has widened the range of ways in which we can look at and experience things and this has effected how she depicts some of the individual objects in her paintings. At the same time she remains fascinated by historical la ndscape painting and its influence is clear on both the technical and forma l appearance of her paintings. The act of looking is key to Engler&rsquo\;s paintings\, and this applies to the objects themselves as well as to those who view them. Striking\, in the most recent paintings in the exhibition\, are rows of human figures seen in profile\, witnesses to some thing\, or e vent\, that is not disclosed to the viewer of the painting. What\, we are b eing asked by these paintings\, is the meaning of testimony? How can visual art bear witness to\, and reflect upon\, the darkest and most tragic event s of human history?

Ori Gersht employs photography and film as h is chosen media\, but his work has always exhibited a fascination with pain ting and art history. He is very interested in the differences and connecti ons between the ways in which a painter and a camera create and record real ity\, and in his latest series of photographs he uses cameras and mirrors a s devices with which to explore questions of reflection\, representation an d perception.

\n

The new photographs had two starting points. The first was a visit to the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna in 2013 where Gersht became fascinated by three early seventeent h century paintings by Jan Brueghel depicting vases of flowers. The second was when Gersht started focusing his attention onto the flat surface of a m irror. This mirror is reflecting what appears to be one of Brueghel&rsquo\; s paintings\, but this image is an illusion - not only because it is seen i n a mirror\, but also because what is being reflected is not a painting\, b ut a replica\, meticulously crafted by hand from artificial flowers\, of th e bouquet depicted by Brueghel. This replica is a comment upon the nature o f the original painting in which Brueghel chose not to depict wild (natural ) flowers but ones that were the result of a sophisticated horticultural in tervention by man. All the flowers are shown in their most perfect form and the depiction of the simultaneous perfection of so many species that bloom in different seasons and in far flung geographically locations - a fantasy of a desirable\, but never attainable reality - is an assertion of the pow er of art and craft\, alongside the power of science and technology\, to re make the world of objects. It also undermines traditional notions of time a nd place.

Having placed the replica of Brueghel&rsquo\;s floral bouquet in front of a mirror\, Gersht next positioned two hi-definition dig ital cameras\, focusing them on two different optical planes: one close up on the glass surface of the mirror\, the other - from a distance of three m eters - on the reflection of the vase of flowers. The mirror was then broke n using either hammers or small explosive charges\, shattering it into a ma elstrom of flying fragments of reflective glass. \;

In contr ast to the laborious and meticulous processes that led to the creation of t he replicas of the bouquets in Brueghel&rsquo\;s paintings\, the compositio ns that were captured by the camera at the instant of the shattering of the mirrors were rapid and unpredictable. The use of the two cameras allowed G ersht to capture simultaneously two contrasting views of the same event. Be cause of the different focusing points and the limited depth of field\, eac h camera captured an alternative reality\, questioning the relationship bet ween photography and a single objective truth. The final photographic print s simultaneously embrace rigorous and painstaking craft and the mechanical instantaneousness of the digital camera. Gersht raises the question of whet her the camera records\, or creates\, reality. What appears to be real here is merely a reflection and its shattering is so instantaneous that the eye \, without the aid of the camera and the flash\, cannot properly see it. It is only made available to us through the mediation of optical technology. The work of Ori Gersht has been described by the critic David Chandler as a meditation on the poetics of fragility. In his latest series we are remind ed that all images are transitional. They show us nothing more &ndash\; for certain &ndash\; than the absence of the object of representation.Nogah En gler and Ori Gersht both understand that a work of art has multiple orienta tions to time and history. It is temporally unstable and points back and fo rwards at the same time. The art historians Alexander Nagel and Christopher S. Wood have argued that\, &ldquo\;No device more effectively generates th e effect of a doubling or bending of time than the work of art\, a strange kind of event whose relation to time is plural&rdquo\; \;1. Walter Benjamin proposed that otherwise forgotten moments could be recovere d from oblivion and reintroduced to illuminate current historical situation s and that there can be a dialectical interplay of temporalities in which & ldquo\;what has been&rdquo\; and &ldquo\;now&rdquo\; suddenly come together in an image that reveals higher historical and even objective truths. Both these ideas find a strong manifestation in the works of Engler and Gersht.  \;


Nogah Engler was born in 1970\, Ori Gersht in 1967 . They both live and work in London. \;
