New contemporary art gallery to open in London’s Marelybone.

A new gallery Jessica Carlisle opens in London’s Marylebone this Thursday. The inaugural exhibition presents artist Katrina Blannin with ANNODAM.

Katrina Blannin is known for her meticulous and seductive compositions that explore tonality and colour-play through variations and repetitions of a motif or “pattern”.

ANNODAM comprises a series of new paintings derived from the artist’s study of Piero della Francesca’s fresco Madonna del Parto (c.1455-60). Piero’s heraldic painting is formed of an underlying geometric structure and visual topology that enforces its narrative content. Blannin has responded to the fresco’s particular chromatic properties by using a series of collaged drawings as the basis for paintings, whose oppositional and complimentary colour relationships highlight, balance and unbalance the symmetrical composition through the organisation of form and layers of paint.
The title Annodam – Madonna reversed – plays on the idea of transposition and transformation.
