Three new showcases by ARTful

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

ARTful, the online gallery and advisory practice providing contemporary art for the corporate and private sector, run by Eleni Polycarpou of our London Chapter, have three showcases on in the City of London.

Four sculptures by Sam Shendi are on display at the St Botolph Building in Aldgate until September 2018. Shendi takes the human figure to its simplest form, enabling the exploration of the idea of the human form as a vessel. Sam has worldwide recognition and collectors and was the winner of the FIRST@108 Public Art Award in 2013.

At Tower 42, ARTful are exhibiting sculptures by Kim Youdan and Gemma Kelly in the first-floor reception area until mid-April 2018. Youdan has developed her mixed media technique using photography as the foundation of her work. Her approachable and colourful creations instill viewers with feelings of nostalgia, memory, and wanderlust.

Kelly’s emotionally expressive sculptures are both playful and confronting: from abstracts that draw on the aesthetic joys of dance, to human bodies that reveal pain and sorrow in their taught sinews and stressed limbs. Much of her work draws on personal experiences that she expressed boldly and without compromise, inviting the viewer into a world that is usually kept hidden and internal, such as in ‘Dance II’, featured below.

Invocation at ODETTA Gallery

Friday, May 12th, 2017

Odetta Gallery is pleased to present Invocation. The artists,  Loren Eiferman, Camille Eskell, Charles Geiger, focus on healing, either a specific person, or thing when engaged in the act of making their works of art. The magical qualities inherent in their spirited requests can be seen in the finished work. Through the power of imagination and intense concentration, their objects make our humanity visible and vulnerable.

In conjunction with the exhibition Invocation at ODETTA, the gallery has curated their Flat Files for Creative Tech Week 2017. Jeff Becker, Joshie Fishbein, Greg Garvey (Cabinet of Wonders, Persistence and the Fugitive, animation still, 2017 pictured) Toni Simon, and Susan Stair have produced works that address geological time, persistence of nature, communication among trees and humans, and the fragility of our planet through ceramic installation, poetry, and video works.

 

Invocation is the gallery’s 24th exhibition. There will be an opening reception for the artists on Friday May 12, 2017 from 6 – 8:00 pm and the public is invited. A concert event will be held in celebration of Creative Tech Week on Friday May 19 from 7-9 pm and there will be an Artists Talk on Sunday June 11 at 3:00 pm. The show runs from May 12 – June 18, 2017
