Kilmany-Jo Liversage -  the exhibition 'ORDA' of the latest paintings.

Kilmany-Jo Liversage lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa.

She creates portraits that sit at the blurry boundary between fine art and graffiti.

Adopting the graffiti or urban art language allows her to update, renew and challenge the conventions of painting, though her rendering of female subjects are inspired by Renaissance era portraiture. It also references digitised mass production and a futuristic post-human world, populated by perfect-looking female cyborgs. The result is a series of brightly coloured large-scale paintings, evoking the street, art history and the future.

Although Liversage has painted walls all over the world, including a large-scale mural at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013, she does not consider herself a street artist. Operating within the framework of ‘urban contemporary’, Liversage may have incorporated aspects of street art into her practice – considerable scale, a predilection for working outside and the custom of tagging - but she trained as a fine artist and painting is her committed pursuit. She is a dedicated fine art painter. She is faithful to Renaissance standards of portraiture, working within the established canon, taking into account the very same compositional considerations as da Vinci or Piero della Francesca. She makes modern-day Mona Lisas with intriguing eyes and full-lipped smiles. Her source material is skimmed from social media networks – real women looking the part that is expected of them.

Jamie McCartney - the exhibition 'The Sum of Our Parts' of the latest artworks.

Jamie McCartney is an English sculptor, trained at Hartford Art School, USA, where he graduated in 1991. An artist hard to define. “I blame my degree in Experimental Studio Art... I’m still experimenting”. He admits to being a sculptor but shuns any closer definition. “I make things”. This mock belies a strong character with a definite je ne sais quoi... A maverick, a self-confessed enfant terrible and what he makes is causing a stir.

McCartney began his career running his own forge, making abstract animal sculptures in steel. He subsequently moved into sculpture, prop making and special effects in the film industry. Jamie worked on films such as Blackhawk Down, Charlotte Gray, Around the World in 80 Days, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and Casino Royale.

  • 2 - 31 October 2022

Claudie Bastide - the exhibition "The Force Of The Gesture" of the latest artworks.

Claudie Bastide, is an international artist having lived in a number of cities including Paris, Brussels and Mexico where she ran a fashion-design studio. Back in Paris she spent 10 years collaborating with a French fashion icon-Pierre Cardin. She fell in love with the arts, and had her first solo exhibition of characters made out of chairs back in 1996.

Claudie enjoys using brushes and colours to express the very and unspeakable depth of her feelings. She expresses herself in an abstract, geometrical way, looking for harmony of shapes and colours. Claudie is particularly fond of oil painting for its exhilarating scents and vibrant colours, so much so that, she would happily cover herself in the stuff! Claudie also recently got into digital photography manipulation, and is without a shadow of a doubt an all round artist!

Claudie has received several honour prizes for her works and has exhibited in many cities including Paris, Geneva, Berlin, Barcelona. Many of her sculptures and paintings are in private collections. Claudie currently lives and works near Montpellier, France.

 

  • 2 - 30 September 2022

Gamal Meleka - the exhibition 'History’s Traces' of the latest artworks by the artist.

Gamal Meleka, born in Cairo, is based in Milan. His extensive studies at Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera and his unique talent have allowed him to become one of the most acclaimed artist in contemporary art in Italy, Egypt and several countries in Europe and Middle Est.

The encounter of the two inspiring cities strengthened into a powerful and sensitive artistic philosophy that pervades his canvas collections, performing amazing images.

It lies in Meleka’s ability to play his harmonious melody to the rhythm of his traits. His straight and rugged lines conflict with his tender lines that appear from behind the sudden hissing and the bold scratches of his spatula.

He fulfilled the goal of creating a contemporary icon permeated by the questions of modern human being together with the development of modern figurative art. The Sphynx epic, guardian of civilization, thrives among contemporary complexity, keeping alive the roots of humanity and inspiring the performance virtuosity of Meleka.

 

  • 2 - 31 August 2022

Mine Zabci - the exhibition 'Only You Can' of the latest paintings by the gallery new artist.

"Images possess a power that doesn’t need words, a magical energy that touches the soul, feeding the hunger and curiosity of human nature.” - Mine Zabci

Abstract Expressionist: Based in the UK, contemporary  artist Mine Zabci is renowned for her abstract expressionist work, exhibiting both in the UK and abroad. A graduate of Fine Art, Mine describes herself as a spontaneous artist. Spontaneity is critical to the artist’s work. She does not sketch beforehand or have a preconceived idea of what she will create fast  preferring to let inspiration take over and guide her hand. Using a variety of techniques and mediums including hand paints, pallet knives and clothe, Mine believes in the freedom of artistic expression that cannot be restricted to particular techniques, timescales, plans or styles. She believes that images without words fulfil the desire of “human nature to create its own mysteries when exploring the unknown, the unseen and the unspoken."

 

  • 2 - 31 July 2022

  • 2 - 30 June 2022

Natália Gromicho - the exhibition 'Wondering If' of the latest artworks.

Natália Gromicho was born in Lisbon, Portugal. At the Faculdade de Belas Artes de Lisboa, she studied painting and went on to graduate from Intensive Painting at the private ArCo School of Art in Lisbon. As an Expressionist artist, Gromicho’s work is often concerned with perception and reality. Her canvases are as energetic as the Lisbon streets with desiccating slogans and sunset red riots, and it is easy to see the personal influence of this bright chaotic city. Painted lines scrawl over deserted pastel buildings, the ubiquitous graffiti contrasting with the multiple layers.

The recurring image of a headless and armless female mannequin verges on the surreal, and within this metaphysical framework Gromicho paints with an anything-might-happen wildness. Her paintings are slowly piecing together a philosophical mosaic- and with more and more in demand, her unique vision only gets clearer. Having participated in more than 70 solo and group exhibitions, the artist has already represented her country in Italy, Brazil, Miami and Australia. Her works are now in several private and institutional collections worldwide.

  • 2 - 31 May 2022

Allan Storer - the exhibition 'Abstract Spirit' of the gallery new artist paintings.

Allan Storer devoted seven years to academic studies and postgraduate research in fine art and theory at Chelsea College of Art and Kings College.

Art is the tool of Allan’s professional practice and through education and psychotherapy has underpinned his working practice in community theatre, mental health and complex needs .

Based in St. Ives and London, he is a member of the Federation of British Artists, the Hesketh Hubbard Art Society and the St. Ives Art Club.

A published artist in the National Collection Public Catalogue Foundation of Paintings sponsored by the BBC, Allan has exhibited with the Royal Institute of Oil Painters in the Mall Galleries London, museums and public art galleries.

  • 2 - 30 April 2022

Hani Mazhar - the exhibition 'Countless Shades' of the latest paintings.

Hani Mazhar was born in Iraq in 1955 and discovered painting in his early years. Finding it nearly impossible to freely express himself in the Iraq that was taken over by Saddam Hussein in 1978, he eventually moved to London. As an improvisational painter Mazhar explores the world around him - from the use of red and black he saw in Japan to painting ideas from Sufism.

The artist considers his self-expression to be able to convey a message, saying that ‘the visual has one language, and it is a small world." Perhaps art will never have an impact on a political world, ‘but we have to say something… we cannot all just wait to be controlled. We cannot see something, and feel something, and not express ourselves the way we know best."

Hani Mazhar's work features worldwide in private collections in Japan, Germany, Spain, England, Mexico, Colombia, Syria, Lebanon and Argentina.

  • 2 - 31 March 2022

Igor Tcholaria - the exhibition 'Space Of Music And Love' of the latest artworks.

Igor Tcholaria was born in 1959 in the small town of Ochamchiri on the coast of the Black Sea in Abkhazia, Georgia. During his school days, his teachers noticed his exceptional talent and suggested that he apply to the prestigious Art College of Sukhumi. Tcholaria spent the next three years there studying under the guidance of artist Givi Guergaya. After completing his studies at the College, Tcholaria moved to Leningrad to study at the University of Arts named after Vera Mukhina.

Tcholaria became one of the first artists in the Soviet Union who earned a living by painting portraits in the street. During Gorbachev’s Perestroika, Tcholaria was noticed by the owner of Cenacolo Gallery in Piacenza, Italy. Intrigued by Tcholaria’s talent, the Italian art dealer offered to collaborate with him, the start of an artistic venture abroad. In Italy he had his first solo exhibition, soon followed by shows in Greece, Belgium and Netherlands, along with auctions and art fairs. Among other commissions, he was asked to paint two four-meter long murals for famous ocean liner, the Queen Mary II. In 2009 he won the gold medal for his aerographics on the latest Volvo C70, exhibited at the Millionaire’s Fair in Moscow.

  • 2 - 28 February 2022

Maurizio Camatta - the exhibition 'Coloured Air' of the latest artworks.

Italian artist Maurizio Camatta is an extraordinary presence in the contemporary art world. As an Abstract Expressionist his use of colour appears haphazard, provoking an emotional response in the viewer. These are dust explosions, rockets blazing through the layers of atmosphere, rainy skies and steamed up windows. There are fireworks imploding in the damp fog; stars bursting and dissolving into Northern Lights. The paintings have an oddly meditative quality to them, allowing your mind to drift off over Turner-esque skies to better places, completely absorbed…

  • 2 - 31 January 2022

Giuseppe Linardi - the exhibition 'New Era' of the latest artworks.

Born in Buenos Aires in 1971, Giuseppe Linardi moved to Follonica at a young age. He attended the Art School of Grosseto and went on to study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence.

Although the first phase of the artist’s work was devoted to hyperrealism, his technique has now developed into a more spontaneous style. The paintings evolve through techniques of dripping paint and are enriched by unusual colours and resins. The series is entitled ‘Paintings Decoded’, using the metaphor of language.

Linardi is a versatile artist who, in addition to painting, creates installations and sculptures.
