A new art gallery is coming to London this October. Based in Notting Hill Lacey Contemporary takes a new approach to the standard gallery model, with an ethos of nurturing and fostering relationships with its artists.

Gallery Director Andrew Lacey says,

“Lacey Contemporary is a contemporary art gallery focused on promoting British based artists to provide a complete business service to allow the artists to focus on their artistic practice. With innovation and technical excellence at the forefront of everything we do Lacey Contemporary aims to change the model for commercial galleries.”

PROCESSED SPACE (9th October – 2nd November) is the inaugural exhibition for Lacey Contemporary bringing together the works of three outstanding young British painters working today – Ross M Brown, Geoff Diego Litherland and Merlin Ramos. Their work is held in space and consumed by space, with a narrative and aesthetic developed through the process.
Brought together through the medium of painting, all investigate space, be it the cosmos or the physical space we occupy in real time and imagined. Each artist presents restraint, consideration and process in their works that heralds their craftsmanship.
