Billy Schenck-Distant Drums-40x22

JoAnne Artman Gallery, presents: “Saddle Up” New Works by Billy Schenck

Galloping horses, blood orange sunsets, dusty cowboys – you can almost feel the rising heat from the sun-warmed earth. Billy Schenck has a definitive flair for highlighting the drama, and evoking the action of classic Westerns along with their corresponding mythology. The American Frontier holds a special place in our nation’s history, as well as in our imaginations. JoAnne Artman Gallery, is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Billy Schenck, capturing the persevering nature of the myths and dreams of the Old West.

In subject, Schenck goes for the iconic imagery of the Wild, Wild West – cowboys and Indians, sunsets and gunfire. Many of the scenes are a cheeky look at both the history of the American Frontier, as well as the established perceptions through the lens of contemporary popular culture, with a heavy dose of exaggerated passion and romance. The scenes pictured are at times comical, and at others, profound. Schenck plays up the ambiguity between his villains and heroes, underscoring the duality of human nature, a central theme in his work.

Gallery Elena Shchukina Balraj Khanna

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

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’
