b+w is a group show at Paul Stolper Gallery, London that brings together artworks by Frank Auerbach, Peter Blake, Jimmy Cauty, Keith Coventry, Kevin Cummins, Jeremy Deller, Brian Eno, Susie Hamilton, Damien Hirst and Reece Jones.
Eleesa Dadiani, the gallery’s director, says:
“The only element that unites the 10 featured artists is that they all paint in oil. In bringing together these wildly disparate voices, the presentation celebrates that medium in all its myriad forms, while affirming its enduring potency and capacity to delight and surprise.”
By abstracting the McDonald’s logo, Coventry re-defines what is a flag-like global corporate logo; subverting something so powerful and omnipresent into beautiful geometric abstract shapes.

The re-launch is being given an extra boost by the British artist Keith Coventry, who has donated one of his celebrated Estate Paintings to the school.
