Petra Cortright: Pale Coil Cold Angel at Nahmad Projects until 20 July 2018

Solo exhibition by Petra Cortright featuring works in 2D, 3D, and video. The artist presents stone sculptures for the first time in the form of three works carved from white Carrara marble, with a six-metre wide quadriptych being the largest painting by the artist to date. 🎨

A video installation is the latest in her “painting video” series. Cortright is a twenty-first century painter using contemporary tools. The Los Angeles-based artist is a celebrated member of a diffuse group known as “post internet” artists, who explore the effect of digital culture on the development of fine art.

After a series of critically acclaimed webcam performances distributed on YouTube, the artist consolidated her practice by using Photoshop to make paintings using brushes and images mined from internet search engines. Her use of platforms like Pinterest subverts traditionally gender normative content such as flowers and interiors, freeing this imagery into expansive digital landscapes.

The title of the show is also drawn from search terms used online. A final painting is a captured still from a master file that could be modified endlessly, so while her two-dimensional objects are static, they suggest dynamic change in reference to their source.

Mr Brainwash launches new street art show in London.

The work of street artist Mr Brainwash, real name Thierry Guetta, is the subject of a new exhibition at London’s Opera Gallery. The French-born artist came to prominence after being featured in Banksy’s Oscar-nominated documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop.

Los Angeles-based Guetta has collaborated closely with Banksy, leading to some speculation that he is a cover for the notoriously enigmatic street artist. Initially the subject matter of Exit Through The Gift Shop, the self-protective Banksy eventually turned the camera on amateur film-maker Guetta.

The Opera Gallery London has a collection of contemporary and modern painting and sculpture, displaying a permanent collection of the most renowned international artists, and special exhibitions every two months.

A retreat from the chaos of the city; a place for introspection and investigation – visitors can find refuge in the space, or choose to be challenged by it.
