James Lumsden’s new series ‘Reflex’ is comprised of paintings that emerge from baroque curves of light and colour, which palpitate with energetic life. […] The artist comments that ‘the transparency and the fluidity of the marks can give a sense of something caught in motion – an act of movement fixed’. Certainly, there is something positively animate about Lumsden’s work; the films of paint tell a story of paradoxically constant metamorphosis, of conflict and change that perhaps equates to our own ontology and to our relationship with others.
The gallery will be participating again in the London Art Fair with new works by the artists: Maisie Broadhead, Alicia Dubnyckyj, Nicholas Jolly, James Lumsden, Andrew Mackenzie, Emily Moore, Jenny Pockley, Paul Riley, Andy Stewart and Wycliffe Stutchberry. The art fair will take place from the 21-25 January 2015 at the Business Centre on Upper Street, Islington, London.
arah Myerscough is pleased to present a group show featuring landscape paintings by gallery artists: Alicia Dubnyckyj, Andrew Mackenzie and Jenny Pockley. If you have missed their latest solo exhibitions at the gallery earlier this year, it is a great opportunity to discover their recent works.
Alicia Dubnyckyj returns with her highly complex abstract cityscape paintings, capturing the dynamism and speed of contemporary London, which is now firmly recognised as one of the leading cities in the world, substantiated in 2013 by being crowned the most popular tourist destination on earth. In particular, the artist’s new work reflects the post-Olympic optimism felt in the Capital, encapsulating this new mood in her highly coloured, panoramic views that celebrate London’s inspiring contemporary and historic architecture.
This new body of work by Andrew Mackenzie comprises paintings and silver-point drawings of Scottish waterfalls, rivers, woodland and lochs – all subjects encountered in the artist’s daily experience, in research trips taken to specific locations, and in the history of landscape painting.
Sarah Myerscough is pleased to present “London’s Story”, a new body of works by British painter Jenny Pockley.
For this widely anticipated solo exhibition at the gallery, the artist continues to explore the landscape of the metropolis as she sublimates the busy and constantly shifting capital into a silent and timeless icon.
Sarah Myerscough Gallery, in partnership with the London Design Festival, is delighted to present ‘On Display’, a group show featuring work by contemporary British designers, David Gates and Peter Marigold, metal smith artist Grant McCaig, Austrian ceramicist Thomas Bohle and Japanese jewellery designer Mariko Sumioka
Haunting, evocative and fizzing with hedonism, Andy Stewart’s remarkable new exhibition ‘Time. Truth. Matter’, takes the visitor on a stroll, with Stewart as his amiable guide, to the frontier where the spirituality of man encounters the vast, fearful magnificence of the universe and the laws which govern it.
Peter Marigold’s latest series Bleed is a collection of cedar wood cabinets that incorporate a form of ‘localised ebonising’. Although the forms are simplistic blocks, the steel hardware, stripped of its protective zinc coating using acid, reacts with the tannin in the cedar. This produces bleeding patterns on the wood that in turn emphasise the actual complexity of the organic material.
This collection of new works includes a series of photographs entitled Broadhead’s Women; a collection of studies portraying three generations of women from the artist’s immediate family. Broadhead’s Women reinterprets the recognisable compositional styles of two historical painters – Johannes Vermeer and Vilhelm Hammershøi – and highlights their similar obsession of repeating the narrative of women situated within quiet domestic interiors. By using the visual format of these iconic artists, while making subtle changes, Broadhead offers intimate and timeless portraits of femininity.
