JoAnne Artman Gallery Presents: “Kinetic Energy” Featuring Lee Waisler

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

KINETIC ENERGY

Graceful lines and bold color brought together through a nuanced approach to texture and material. A line that is both a relief as well as a spatial tool to curve shadow, compose color and separate texture. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of work by Los Angeles based painter Lee Waisler (b. 1938). Through varied subject matter, the grouped works show the culmination of a long and articulated artistic practice, utilizing an established visual language and unifying approach.

Throughout his work, Red pictured above, Waisler utilizes dimensional compositional elements including wood, sand, carbon, and glass. Waisler’s intent and approach renders the works unyieldingly direct – they are evocative, poetic, and bold.

Ivy Brown Gallery is proud to present the magical  ‘Origin of Myth’ by Joshe Goode.

Inspired by amateur archaeologists such as Heinrich Schliemann who discovered Troy and by past elaborate hoaxes like that of the Piltdown Man, Joshua travels the world performing staged archaeological excavations exposing the malleability of our history.  During these performances he discovers his own versions of historical artifacts, crafted from objects from his youth–such as baseball cards, G.I. Joe action figures, POGS, and various other toys and items. His discoveries and claims, while false and absurdly comical, are based on real research. This exhibit highlights some of his most significant recent discoveries.

 The exhibition runs from March 7th-April 12th

‘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.”

Steve Quinn, 2017
