ART OPENING: Nick Jeffrey shiver me timbers! @HannahBarry Private view: Wednesday 12th March 2014
Hannah Barry 4 Holly Grove, Peckham SE15 5DF The exhibition runs to 13th April.
Hannah Barry is to show a new solo exhibition of work by the Berlin-based British artist Nick Jeffrey.
shiver me timbers! brings together large-scale painting and sculpture, the artist’s rag-and-bone abstractionism and improvisatory, reactive techniques he describes as like ‘picking up an electric guitar, hearing the reverb and static and then following its lead, handling it’.
The power of these works is in their accidental transcendence, the tension between the virtuosity of the artist and the lo-fi, reclaimed nature of the materials employed.
London Gallery Weekend kicks off this Friday, May 13th, with hundreds of special events and exhibitions taking place across London. To help you navigate we asked Hector Campbell, writer, curator and author of the weekly emerging art newsletter ‘The Shock of the Now’, to select his top choices from London’s selection of small to mid-size galleries.
This group exhibition takes its title from a little-known short book by J.R.R. Tolkien first published in 1964. The book contains two works, an essay called “On Fairy-Stories” and an allegorical short story called “Leaf by Niggle”.
This weeks top 5 includes: Eyes, the colour pink, cuddly toys, slicing and plasticine.
Proudick is the first collaborative exhibition of artists and friends Paloma Proudfoot and Lindsey Mendick. Drawing from the tradition of celebrity-couple portmanteaus, the artists have rebranded themselves as Proudick for the duration of the exhibition.
