‘Once Upon A Tomorrow’ a solo exhibition by Steve Quinn at the Curious Duke Gallery

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

Curious Duke Gallery is proud to announce the apocalyptic new exhibition of collage artist, Steven Quinn, runs until April 1st 2017. ‘Once Upon A Tomorrow’ is one of the most politically and culturally relevant exhibitions you can visit in London at the moment. Combining cut-outs from old magazines and historic imagery, Quinn creates ominous collage narratives in which the threat of nuclear destruction and intergalactic conflict loom large.

Against these expansive, portentous backdrops are juxtaposed scenes of mundane domesticity taken from vintage magazines: a figure sunbathing in front of an ominous, expanding sun; a 50’s housewife preparing dinner as a mushroom cloud blooms in the distance.

The result is a beguiling melting pot of ideas, that’s at once thought-provoking, visually arresting, and seeped in dark humour.

“Recently, immigration, Trump, and privacy have been themes which have influenced me a lot. Most of the time I buy old books and magazines, then spend time breaking and cutting them up roughly, sorting them into subject matter. For me the paper quality is better with old magazines. If you’re lucky, you can score some really old 40’s magazines that have been screen printed.”

Monday, August 8th, 2016

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts Gallery in Chelsea, is pleased to share their summer 2016 invitational show. The gallery invited three new, emerging artists to exhibit their work in a group show, curated by Kathryn Markel Fine Arts’ staff. The group show features pieces by Xochi Solis, (pictured image “The still sea is darker than before”), Anna Buckner, and Lorene Anderson. The artists’ work comprises mixed media paintings, collage, and pieced fabric on stretchers. The exhibition runs from August 4th – September 3rd, 2016.

On exhibit at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts Gallery in Bridgehampton,  YOLANDA SANCHEZ  – Recent Works.  In ancient China, there was a tradition of the Three Perfections where a poet, a painter, and a calligrapher would collaborate to create one unique and harmonious piece of art. Yolanda Sanchez manages to incorporate all three disciplines herself into her work. Using color as a vehicle for experience heightened by gesture, composition, and texture, Sanchez’s paintings provide a poetic refuge from the day to day.  August 4th – August 21st, 2016

As part of Le French May, Hong Kong’s Karin Weber Gallery will showcase ‘the Essence’ — a series of stunning ‘photo-collages’ by French artist Antoine Rameau from Tuesday 12th May – Monday 18th May 2015. For more information contact Karin Weber Gallery.

Experimenting with collage from the early stages of his career, Antoine Rameau’s art draws from a singular combination of contemporary photography, comics and street art. He explored different techniques, from Surrealist juxtaposition to Cubist construction, and slowly developed his unique style. Inspired by the Recycled Art movement, Rameau collects found images and turns them into new worlds. Each collage tells an elaborate story, filled with multiple symbols, which viewers can interpret based on their own experiences.

About the Artist

Born in 1974, Antoine Rameau is a French artist raised between the green vineyards of Burgundy and the legendary blue seas of Brittany. Having lived in Paris, Toulouse, New York and Glasgow, Rameau travelled the world as a backpacker, exploring cultures, drawing, taking photos and nurturing his passion for storytelling, human nature and mythology. He first discovered Hong Kong in 1997, before travelling the legendary Silk Road. Since then, he has been moving back and forth between Paris and his adoptive city.
