The Spiritual


28th August - 2nd September 2019
Evening Reception: Wednesday 28th August, 6pm - 8pm
Directional Tour at 7pm

 

‘The Spiritual’ will highlight the work of three South Asian artists from India, Sri Lanka and London who are all, in very different ways, dedicated to creating art of a spiritual, perhaps transcendental, form. 

 The Noble Sage is proud to introduce the tantric, mesmeric ‘circle’ paintings of 84-year-old artist Prafulla Mohanti to our collection. Mohanti is one of the pioneer Indian artists working in the UK in the 1970s. Over more than five decades Mohanti has drawn continually on the transformative experiences during his childhood in Orissa, India, to produce colourful metaphysical circles and ovals forms that usher in a sense of the ethereal-divine.  

‘The Spiritual’ also spotlights two younger artists that create outstanding work in this field. The youngest, known by his alias Eccentric-O, is a Belgium-born London artist with Pakistani heritage. Eccentric-O’s mixed media paintings combine the power of ancient design, knowledge and calligraphy with the youthful worlds of digital technology, social media and graffiti art, all to enrich the soul and inspire creativity in the onlooker.

Abstract Now


10th - 22nd September 2019
Evening Reception: Tuesday 10th September, 6pm - 8pm

Camden Image Gallery is pleased to announce "Abstract Now.” a group exhibition curated by Stefania Carrozzini featuring seven artists from: France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland.

This exhibition displays the work of contemporary artists engaged in abstraction. The works were chosen for their visual impact and the strong dialogue they establish between the past and today’s abstractionist. In this show artists incorporated spontaneity and analysis, so their entire creative process produces surprises and discovery.

Abstract art now lives in the art world in many forms.  The experimentation with new media opens new frontiers to the abstract art language building up multiple meanings.

We know that Abstract art can also be made with many materials and on many surfaces. It can be used in concert with representational art or completely abstract. Artists creating it often focus on other visual qualities like color, form, texture, matter and space. 

Abstraction allows us to see with our mind what we cannot see physically with our eyes.

Defining abstract art is difficult. In its most extreme form – “pure abstraction”, as Mondrian called it – it is totally lacking of reference to the natural, material world. But the basic understanding of abstraction as the antithesis of the familiar and the real is inadequate, and not especially helpful if we are to understand our connection to the original movement.

Chaos in abstract art is only apparent: in reality the laws of composition assimilate a picture to a building: all its parts are connected to each other by laws of physics. There is a great sense of freedom but the price is the discipline towards very precise rules. Having said this, then it is poetry that ties everything together and gives meaning to the work.

Abstraction is “an art of individuals”, to borrow Wyndham Lewis’s phrase. Liberated from the restrictions of “copying” the visible world, abstract form provided the artist with a new, language with which to communicate. It also allowed a higher freedom of interpretation for the viewer. And now there is a potential for reading abstract art in a different way, for seeing it in a new light.

The most obvious reason for our celebration is the explosive production of abstract paintings being made today. And perhaps the golden age of abstraction is right now. This style is more exciting than ever; proof that what was begun in the past, is far from being over in our present.

The Colour of Perception


28th - September - 6th October 2019

 

“This exhibition includes a large part of my work since I began painting in January 2018. I took up painting after a summer visit to New Zealand, from the stark grey bleakness of the northern winter. The explosion in colour was overwhelming. It took days for the eyes to adjust to the new reality, and through this experience I started to see the world in a different way. Everything became interesting all of a sudden, and I started to observe my surroundings. When I returned to London, I felt it was time to translate my experience of the world into painting.

For me, art is about perception and communication. Perception has two main meanings: it is the ability to sense or become aware of something through the senses; and it is also the way in which something is regarded, understood or interpreted. So perception is both objective (the ability to sense) and subjective (how we understand and interpret what we sense). Given that each individual’s senses operate differently, it is apparent that even the “objective” side of perception is actually very subjective.”

Colour & Form '19


15th - 20th October 2019

The London Painters and Sculptors Group (LPSG) is formed of eight painters and two sculptors.
The group who have known each other for many years, are friends as well as colleagues sharing gallery visits, studio time and supporting each other through various career successes.

Following on from last year’s successful exhibition, the LPSG has chosen to return to Camden Image Gallery for its annual exhibition. The group’s “Colour & Form ’19” exhibition will allow visitors to explore each of the artists’ contemporary response to the theme of colour, shape and form.

New work will be on display and members of the LPSG will be in the gallery throughout the exhibition to discuss the exhibited pieces. The work will be available for sale.

The members of the LPSG are: Margaret Crutchley, Raina Goran, Jess Miller, Clive Patterson, Fiona Payne, Helen Robinson, Helen Ryan, Cary Whitworth,
Kate Willows and Feza Yuksel.

Life’s a Riot…


10th - 18th December 2019
Evening Reception: Wednesday 11th December 6-8pm

This solo exhibition will show a new body of sculptures and works on paper by Dorothea Magonet

These new sculptures are a departure from Dorothea’s previous works and have developed during tumultuous and difficult times. Reminiscent of harlequin and other players in Commedia del Arte they seem joyful, full of colour and boisterous. Yet, there are disconcerting undertones. Do they not irritate with their carnivalesque colourfulness, making their forms somewhat uncomfortable?

Dorothea Magonet is a sculptor and works mainly with stone, especially alabaster. Inspired by the works of Jean Arp, Louis Bourgeois, Nikki de Saint Phalle and others Dorothea has explored the tense/uneasy relationship between sculptural form and colour. 

She graduated from Goldsmiths College (BaFA) in 2009 and has a studio practice at Queensrollahouse, West London.
