Posted by admin on February 09, 2016  /   no comment

‘A Place in Between’ at Espacio Gallery showcased work from a hugely diverse national and international group of artists, in a variety of interpretations and mediums reflecting moments in the artists’ lives when they found themselves in movement – either through space or state of mind. The interface between life experience and the artistic process can be a strange mysterious world of half glimpsed effects and ideas, but this is also the place in between life events where creative sparks are born. The exhibition combines photography, printmaking, painting, 3D and mixed media.

Virtual Exhibition of Edward Akrout

Posted by admin on January 18, 2016  /   no comment

In the fall of 2013, artist and actor Edward Akrout was left immobilised due to a back injury. Despite paralysing pain, the vibrance and life of New York city pulled Akrout from his isolation, leading him to see his surroundings and its individuals with a new and pure vividness. This renewed sensitivity to the world around Akrout is captured in his mixed media compositions which exist somewhere between landscapes and the mood in which one sees them. They pull the viewer into scenes where distinctive patterns of light, half-obscured figures and abstract linework come together to reproduce the artist’s overwhelming and immediate sensory rush, each serving as a small piece in Akrout’s narrative journey from injury to health.

Virtual Exhibition of Syrian artist Rashwan Abdelbaki

Posted by admin on October 26, 2015  /   no comment

Being an organised and methodical artist, Abdelbaki keeps his studio as neat and ordered as possible. He detests chaos and finds it very cathartic to clean and completely reorganise his studio once he has completed a creation. This methodical aspect of his character is reflected in the clean unified colours of his backgrounds throughout his paintings, the focus is almost always on its main components and their emotions.

Discovery lies not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.

‘Suspending Light’ is the theme of the duo exhibition organised by Lahd Gallery, representing mixed media artist and photographer George H Lewis and Amsterdam-based Rademakers Gallery, representing photographer Annelies Damen. Suspending light is the art of freezing light at a point of time. Light being the fastest travelling thing on earth, suspending it in time to show a particular perspective on a person, object or scene requires true skill. This is something that artists, George Lewis and Annelies Damen have perfectly mastered in their latest collections. Both artists seek to stop light and reveal the truth in that very moment their pieces were formed.

Beauty Laid Bare, 7th – 16th of May 2015

Posted by admin on May 07, 2015  /   no comment

Since the beginning of time, we have lived in a world where expressing female beauty is considered a male prerogative. Male artists have carved our perception of the female form throughout history in the same way fashion defines women’s perceptions of their own selves in our current society. Lahd Gallery and Roberta Moore Contemporary are bringing together two important contemporary artists, Suhair Sibai and Iva Troj to meet for the first time, in a joint exhibition that reveals the true story through their new works. Both artists offer different perspectives on the world, through female eyes. Sibai focuses more on expression, whereas Troj examines the female form. Their foci are different, yet they come together to offer viewers a more complete picture of femininity.

Virtual Exhibition of Marianne MarpLondon – Icons of Civilization

Posted by admin on January 08, 2015  /   no comment

Marianne MarpLondon is a visual artist who lives in-between two cultures, which she sees as a state of inter-being in itself – so it comes naturally to her to manoeuvre with ease in and out of these spaces. Not only does she find herself at home in this third space, but it also gives her a sense of belonging. When viewing her art, the observer will find a strong sense of anachronism that refigures and plays with the way we see and understand the world around us with a desire to push and challenge. Her work is driven by an insatiable curiosity and fuelled by an endless fascination with personal and social identities. This includes cross-cultural parallels, the space between modernity and tradition and the relationship between man and woman.
