The Foundry Gallery presents Simon Phipps’ BÉTON BRUT from 9 September to 27 October.
What do you think of when you hear the architectural term ‘Brutalism’? Love these concrete monolithic buildings or hate them the artist and photographer Simon Phipps is ready to challenge all your preconceptions of the Brutalist building in his solo exhibition in London: BÉTON BRUT.
Simon Phipps has spent the last 15 years photographing and documenting Brutalist and buildings in the UK, creating a survey of photographic images that demonstrate the breadth of this contentious architectural style.
BÉTON BRUT showcases a new series of architectural photographs screen printed in monochrome onto brushed aluminum. Phipps’ careful selection of materials for his work captures one of the properties of Brutalism, ‘its not concerned with the material, but the quality of the material, what can that material do?’ The use of a halftone screen and the aluminium moves the photograph away from the representational; it becomes more sculptural within the enhanced materiality of surface and ink. His photography plays with the viewer’s perspective of the buildings; he has an innovative way of looking at these dynamic constructions finding interesting new vistas and perspectives to capture our imagination.
A selection of Phipps extensive photographic inventory is also displayed in BÉTON BRUTwhere the curatorial arrangements highlight typological similarities and differences, revealing an analysis of form and structure. Using the placement of colour to highlight architectural details; stemming from Le Corbusier’s Polychromie Architectural, Phipps has used colour from the buildings he has resolutely documented and faithfully used these colours as an integral part of the exhibition in The Foundry Gallery. BÉTON BRUT is curated by Elizabeth Goode.

The Sarah Wiseman Gallery, in looking ahead to September, has just announced the solo exhibition by Daniel Ablitt ‘Seeking Light’ that opens on Saturday 3rd September. One of the works on show, City Lights, is shown here courtesy of the artist and the Sarah Wiseman Gallery.
In this exhibition the artist is deepening his exploration of our connections to the landscape. It is very human to seek an open space, a place to think and reflect; Daniel finds this magical space in his paintings, making them very compelling as we meditate on the vastness of nature. For more information contact the Sarah Wiseman Gallery.
Garvey|Simon is pleased to announce the exhibition, Select, featuring work by seven artists chosen by director Elizabeth K. Garvey from the gallery’s inaugural Artist Review Program. The artists are Nancy Daubenspeck, Margot Glass, Leslie Kerby, Neema Lal, Linda Lindroth, Lily Prince, and Krista Svalbonas. The Artist Review Program exists to create dialogue with artists and to offer an accessible platform for visibility and potential exhibition at the gallery. This year’s artists are all women whose works are diverse in both subject matter and form. There is a romantic element in the drawings of rumpled envelopes by Margot Glass and in Lily Prince’s dreamlike landscapes. Krista Svalbonas and Leslie Kerby study domestic space, with Svalbonas creating collages contrasting city and country, while Kerby explores the use of shipping containers for permanent or temporary housing. Working with a different sort of container, Linda Lindroth flays and flattens vintage boxes with lavish colors and textures. Nancy Daubenspeck and Neema Lal both utilize a subtractive technique, Daubenspeck taking away and retouching layers of casein paint while Lal sandblasts her glass sculpture.
Select runs from August 4th – August 20th
