Take One Shape – Laura Jane Scott at the Foundry Gallery from November 23rd

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017

Take One Shape by Laura Jane Scott is presented at The Foundry Gallery from November 23rd to January 12.

Laura Jane Scott’s vividly abstract compositions embrace not only the two essential elements of Abstract Hard Edge Painting, colour and structure, but also principles of Conceptual Art. All the works in ‘TAKE ONE SHAPE’ are derived from one simple shape – the rhomboid. They echo paintings by Ellsworth Kelly, with Scott’s use of precise geometric abstractions all having the same core structure but subject to infinitely subtle variations. ‘TAKE ONE SHAPE’ showcases a hybrid of painting and sculpture, a refined visual vocabulary of form and colour.

Scott’s studio is full of rulers, piles of graph paper, scalpels, pens and painted paper. Working in series, she explores the idea of ‘possibilities from limitations.’ Using just one geometric shape as the starting point and drawing on principles from Minimalist Architecture, Hard Edge Abstraction and Conceptual Art she takes this basic geometric form and draws out all the possible arrangements that can be made by laying one shape on top of another. The drawings are small-scale diagrams which are always made on the same style of graph paper. This strict approach hints at both mathematical and architectural practices. What would seem an austere procedural way of making art is precisely what makes it interesting. With her systematic rigour, Scott has successfully dissected the fundamental elements of painting by not only looking at the surface of the painting but seeing it as a way of creating a visual index in which to document the interaction of form, colour and the space they inhabit.

Balraj Khanna: A Retrospective at Gallery Elena Shchukina (23 Nov – 24 Jan)

Monday, November 6th, 2017

Gallery Elena Shchukina presents a retrospective exhibition of mixed media paintings by Balraj Khanna. Opening on the 55th anniversary of Khanna’s arrival in the UK, the exhibition will celebrate the Punjab-born artist’s prolific career.

Khanna’s first exhibition in London took place in 1965 and the exhibition goes back to that time, showcasing works from 1967 onwards, including landmark pieces such as African Queen (1970), and Green Belt, first shown at the Serpentine Gallery in 1979. These early works are displayed alongside Khanna’s most recent project, an array of small paintings created in the months leading up to the exhibition.

Amidst the diversity, we can find a continuity in Khanna’s ouvre. Textured, shimmering grounds of sand and primer, populated by cut-out silhouettes of toys and otherworldly characters, form the underpinning narrative of Khanna’s practice, punctuated by short departures which allow Khanna to draw from new sources of inspiration and expand his painterly world. As Robin Dutt once wrote:

‘Khanna has been tenaciously loyal to a particular discipline – making art out of childhood memories and everyday events, representing emotion in a way which curiously embraces abstraction and figuration in equal measure’
