Chantal Fabres Latin American Art (CF-LART) and Gazelli Art House are exhibiting at the third edition of Photo London taking place from 17th to 21st May at Somerset House.

About Chantal Fabres Latin American Art

With an unprecedented level of attention to a region that has had a sketchy representation in Europe and the United States, it is a great moment to look at photography from Latin America.

CF-LART’s mission aims to generate a dialogue that transcends the idea of a dominant stereotype of Latin American photography and that of Chile in particular. Chilean photography is generally associated to a select few internationally renown names such as Sergio Larrain, Alfredo Jaar and Paz Errazuriz. However, it stands for a great and rich visual history whose lesser known authors deserve to be recognized.

Gazelli Art House was founded in 2003 in Baku, Azerbaijan where it held exhibitions with Azeri artists.

Lucy Bainbridge’s Fermata at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea (21 April – 2 June)

Monday, April 17th, 2017

Lucy Bainbridge’s Fermata (shown here courtesy of the artist and The Foundry Gallery) showcases a new body of work that attempts to capture the ephemeral nature of London. Bainbridge has effectively dematerialized the cityscape unfolding in front of her, giving us a recognisable but estranged vision of London’s skyline.

Through Bainbridge’s multidisciplinary approach to printmaking (she uses photographic screen prints, printed directly onto graphite dust with an overlay of drawing and additional screen printing) she challenges our ideas of what constitutes a print. Working from photographs taken just before dawn, where the light is limited and relative calm envelopes London, she then edits her work both digitally and throughout her printmaking process, removing enough detail so that what remains are these beautiful glimpses of stillness in the incessant rhythm of the routine of London.

News from Our Partners: Photographer Vladislav Kolev documents the Store Street Framing Workshop

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

Vladislav Kolev is London based visual artist working with photography. AWAD’s London Partners in matters of framing and related services, Store Street Framing asked him to spend some time in their workshop and make a piece that illustrates the great craft and sheer hard work that goes into hand-finished frames. Kolev came back with some beautiful images, a selection of which are seen here courtesy of the artist and Store Street Framing, and many more can be seen via this link.

My fascination with photographic images began before I even got my first camera. My interest in photography grew almost instantly after many years of painting, making sculptures and mixed media experiments. I see it as a natural progression that I moved into photography full time where a combination of things that dwelled inside me found their way out through this medium.
