Sanctuary by Hormazd Narielwalla at Gallery Elena Shchukina from June 15th

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

Celebrating human life and our relationship with nature: Sanctuary by Hormazd Narielwalla a new exhibition at Gallery Elena Shchukina from June 15th.

The solo exhibition Sanctuary brings together bold new, accompanied with some existing artworks from the London based artist’s signature collage technique, using French antique sewing patterns as the conceptual and material starting point for each work. Painstakingly applying coloured and painted paper, acetate and textiles to fill in the planes between the lines, the artist breathes new life into these long forgotten patterns. Inspired by notion of the garden as a metaphor for society, Narielwalla’s works in Sanctuary gather as a multi-sensory forest, a refuge from the chaos of urban life and open up a space for contemplation and reflection.

“A sanctuary of ideas and beauty, for the preservation of life and of humanity. And what is human? We are just flesh and bone. Art, literature, culture, creation, design is what makes us human.”

Understanding the garment pattern as the closest geometrical abstraction of human bodies, Narielwalla builds on the legacy of Cubism to introduce a fourth dimension of time and movement into his exploration of the body – compressing the sensation of a moment in time into one single image, as experienced in the silent drama of the artwork Pilgrim.

Bernd Mechler’s COLOURlust now at Lisa Norris Gallery

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

COLOURlust the new exhibition at the Lisa Norris Gallery is Bernd Mechler‘s first London solo exhibition.

Bernd Mechler is known for his abstract, potent color plays of monumental size.  From early on he had little interest in the representation of reality.  At college he was encouraged to explore his own subjective impressions of reality through painting.

This is painting about painting in the tradition of Gerhard Richter ‘s grey paintings and the white paintings by Robert Ryman.  Mechler almost empties out the canvas of any objects in order to focus entirely on what he describes as a psychological confrontation with painting.  Much of what feeds his work is extracted from life around him, be it a social event, his teaching, visiting an exhibition or simply taking a walk.  His work is spontaneous and relies on the energy of his senses, emotions, intuition and thoughts as well as his perception of the world around him, all of which filters into his compositions.

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.

About Gazelli Art House

Contemporary gallery Gazelli Art House supports a wide range of international artists, presenting a broad and dynamic programme to a diverse audience through global public projects and exhibition spaces in London and Baku.

Gazelli Art House was founded in 2003 in Baku, Azerbaijan where it held exhibitions with Azeri artists. Having hosted conceptually interlinked off-site exhibitions across London, founder and director of Gazelli Art House, Mila Askarova, opened a permanent space on Dover Street, London in March 2012.
