Li Yuan-Chia presented by The Lyc Foundation W09
The LYC Foundation is the estate of Chinese British artist Li Yuan-Chia. An artist, curator, poet and archivist, Li Yuan-chia ranks among the most original and radical of post-war artists. Born in south China in 1929, Li Yuan-chia studied art in Taiwan where he is considered to have been one of the founding fathers of Chinese abstract painting in the 1950s. Travelling from Taiwan to Italy and then to England, he arrived in London in 1965 to exhibit at Signals gallery and later showed with the Lisson Gallery. After leaving London in 1968, he spent the remainder of his life in Cumbria in northern England where he established the LYC Museum and Art Gallery in his own home. As well as opening his home and giving exhibitions to over 300 artists in a ten-year period, Li continue to be innovative in his own art work and his poetry. He also continued to evolve his artistic language which was based in the notion of the “Cosmic Point”. This took many forms, some purely visual, others participatory. For Li, the Point was “the origin and end of creation”. He gave it form according to a most refined artistic and poetic sensibility.

Brian Griffiths & Frank Kent presented by sid motion gallery D22
AIR SIGNS are an ongoing series of sculptural works that are presented as photographs. Frank and Brian gather materials from their studio, and occasionally, from the artists’ wider daily lives. Objects are displayed, positioned, and pressed into action within a wobbly cube. This approach values lightness, some chance encounters and codified conversations. It hopes to sketch something of experiencing the world through its objects, something untidy to be felt and thought. Brian Griffiths and Frank Kent both studied painting, became sculptors, and just now, are making photographs. Together they make a friendly return to the flatness of the image. They met at the Royal Academy Schools in London. MORE
