So Unto The Next One! New Exhibition!
Hello all viewers, both old and new (especially if you have just discovered what I do).
Its been a while since I updated the ‘News’ section on this site. I have been positively busy with all kinds of good opportunities. More on that in upcoming posts. For now, do see the attached picture/poster for a group show of six artists due to be launched in a days time. Again, all info on the poster. Text from Leontia gallery. Actually, here is a link to Leontia gallery! https://leontiagallery.com/home
“FIGURE IT OUT”
The Leontia Gallery presents Figure It Out an exhibition exploring contemporary figurative painting, from 10th of May until 31st.
In an era of digital culture where contemporary art has turned to digital media as the main means of expression and every artist is the master of their own publicity, the Figure It Out exhibition aims to explore the significance of painting today and the numerous possibilities of expression and dialogue thatpainting has to offer. Wide ranges of global contemporary artists have been invited to come together and discuss, through their artistic practice, the past, present and the future of painting. Intertwined within the exhibition is the concept of artist as celebrity, many artists have given a nod to their predecessors, from homages to old master John Singer Sargent, to the pop-art powerhouse that is Warhol.
Private View 10th May 6-9pm
