Established art dealers, MORGAN-DAVIES ART and LAFONTAINE CONTEMPORARY ART are delighted to announce their first partnership as 4WALLS, a new contemporary art collaboration which focuses on uniting established international artists through specially curated pop-up exhibitions.

4WALLS believes in a fresh approach to presenting art and does not keep a permanent space, instead, using pop-ups, it is able to maintain a nimble yet significant presence in London during key times of the art world calendar whilst offering an engaging visual dialogue to new audiences around the city.
EARTH unites four international artists, presented together to create a powerful dialogue for Earth’s future existence. A rich tapestry of commentary is conveyed with visceral sensitivity through the artists’ individual styles, treatments, colour and texture. All four artists make deep references to nature, its beauty and its vulnerability and hold a mirror up to human greed. Living with these images reminds the viewer of Earth’s fragile beauty, and our potential to preserve and protect.
For centuries, artists have used their art and exhibitions as a platform to campaign or comment on politics, war, or humanity. That dialogue has now shifted towards a climate revolution, a crusade of positive activism to save the planet, a war on plastic, the mass consumption challenge and a battle to stop climate change.

Who better to present this stark reality at the forefront of cultural conversations than artists, galleries, museums and institutions. These chosen artists have the power to make environmentalism a priority for all, not just the few. The artists’ aim is to motivate people from passive thinking to active doing, connecting us through shared perspectives, a united experience, stimulating our senses. They believe art has the power to change the world and how we view it.
The works created for this exhibition are rare and beautiful with a critical message. They remind us of the vulnerability of our planet and to preserve it for future generations.
