Giorgio Griffa: A Continuous Becoming at Camden Arts Centre until 8 April 2018

Abstract painter Giorgio Griffa, closely linked to the Arte Povera movement, first became known in the 1960s as part of an Italian generation of artists who sought to radically redefine painting. 🎨

Believing in the ‘intelligence of painting’, Griffa allows the essential elements of his process, such as the type or width of the brush, the colour or dilution of the paint and the nature of the canvas, whether linen, cotton, hemp or jute, to influence and form the work. Griffa’s approach is performative and time-based – often working horizontally on the floor, his rhythmic, formal gestures soak into the unprimed and unstretched material. Griffa’s minimal and primordial marks extend from his fascination with quantum energy, time-space mathematics, the golden ratio and the memory of visual experience since time immemorial. Suggesting the ongoing and organic life of the painting, lines and brushstrokes are deliberately cut short and the canvas is never filled; never a finished or complete object, but a process viewed in the moment.

For over forty years, following a career as an international model and actor, Rudi Patterson dedicated himself to painting. From the three successive council flats he lived in around Notting Hill he produced a vast body of work, exhibiting widely in London, the UK and internationally – from New York to Melbourne – throughout the 1970s, 80s and 90s.

Following his death last year, this exhibition explores a single theme; Rudi’s extraordinarily potent and vivid representations of his native Jamaica. Including many works never previously exhibited, these depictions of montane landscapes, plantation villages, luxuriant tropical vegetation, rivers and beaches conjure a compelling sense of place, intuitively made from the vantage point of a west London window.

Lichtenstein: A Retrospective @ Tate Modern / Thursday 21st February – Monday 27th May 2013

TIME AND PLACE

Daily from 10am – 6pm,
Friday and Saturday until 10pm

Previews on Wednesday 20th February

Tate Modern
Bankside, SE1 9TG

Tickets £14, concessions from £6.10 to £12.20, all available here

Co-organised by The Art Institute of Chicago and Tate Modern, this will be the first major Lichtenstein retrospective for twenty years, bringing together 125 of the artist’s most definitive paintings and sculptures.

Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) is one of the central figures of American Pop Art. In the early 1960s he pioneered a new style of painting, executed by hand but inspired by industrial printing processes. He became renowned for works based on comic strips and advertising imagery, coloured with his signature hand-painted Benday dots, as an ongoing examination of representation and originality in mass media culture. It will also highlight Lichtenstein’s engagement with art history, revealing his lesser-known responses to Futurism, Surrealism and German Expressionism. In the final years of his life, the artist went on to create a series of huge female nudes and sublime Chinese landscapes, neither of which have previously been shown within the wider context of his oeuvre.

This exhibition will showcase such key paintings as Drowning Girl 1963 (Museum of Modern Art, New York), shown above.
Advance booking is highly recommended.

Fragments of Faile @ Lazarides Rathbone Gallery / Until 3rd December 2011

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors: Tuesday – Saturday 11am – 7pm

Lazarides Gallery
11 Rathbone Place
London, W1T 1HR

Entry: £Free

www.lazinc.com

Over the course of the past decade, FAILE developed an artistic practice inflected with remixes of mass culture, and built on careful juxtapositions of seeming dualities. Fragments of FAILE allows us to see them working at one frontier of their practice, stripping their painting down to its essentials and engaging a century of the more expressive terrain of abstract portraiture.

This suite of new works provides an intimate counterpart to FAILE’s recent large-scale explorations of religious motifs while drawing out less obvious threads in their practice, from subtle gradations of color and pattern to a conscious removal of clear identities in order to explore archetypical structures beneath.

The Wall Project @ Rich Mix / Closes August 5th 2011

Attention all Artists…..

Havana Club, the authentic Cuban Rum and cross arts centre Rich Mix have collaborated to present the Havana Club Wall Project. The Project is an art competition that will allow emerging talents to gain exposure in one of East London’s cultural hotspots. The twelve-month project includes three commissions launched by three live events, hosted in conjunction with the start of Rich Mix’s new seasons.

The Havana Club Wall Project is a celebration of the unique spirit of the Cuban city of Havana. It will embody the unique and inspiring attitude that reflects the true values of the Cuban capital – humanity, spontaneity and creativity – all of which are synonymous with authentic Cuban rum.

The Summer Season application received many exciting interpretations on the true values of Havana and the final winner was LXOne.

Entries are now open again and one winner will paint their design on the huge 16.7×2.8m interior wall of the events space in Rich Mix, Bethnal Green. It will remain for 3 months giving artists the opportunity to showcase their work on a large scale in this popular East London venue.
The prize also includes a £500 prize to over materials used.

The closing date for entries is August 5th.
