Opening on Friday 8th March, The Gowlett in Peckham presents Bring On The Dancing Horses, an exhibition of recent paintings by London-based artist Adam Laurence Hedley. Drawing together an enthused body of work focussed on the exploratory nature of paint, Hedley’s prolific production of bold abstracted images are guided by the dynamic interrelationships between colour, shape and pattern. Curated with Alice Lee, this show is one of a pair of solo exhibitions of Hedley’s work, running simultaneously, representing his two main modes of practice – drawing and painting.

Concerned predominantly with structure and texture, Hedley’s paintings are a vibrant blend of geometric shapes, rich colour fields and suggestions of three-dimensionality. Working methodically and intuitively, Hedley builds depth through the layers of paint to hide and reveal elements of the canvas and create a conversation between the order of things seen and unseen. Bring On The Dancing Horses is the second exhibition of Hedley’s paintings in Peckham, where he lives.

Parallel Point is a collaborative project between artist Adam Laurence Hedley and curator Alice Lee who, for the past nine months, have been questioning and discussing the issues surrounding art display, and its related events, through a continuous dialogue within the context of their individual disciplines. Running in parallel with Bring On The Dancing Horses is Dog & Pony Show, an exhibition of Hedley’s works on paper, at Power Lunches Arts Cafe in Hackney, which opens on Thursday 7th March. Both exhibitions close on Sunday 7th April.
