Click to enlargeANJ SMITH
Nov 9, 2019 - Mar 1, 2020
Working primarily with painting, Anj Smith is interested in reflecting on the very possibilities and limitations of the medium itself.
 
Her work excavates often-overlooked art histories, which she combines with her lived experiences, to form the layers of her work. Exploring the very edges of representation, Smith's ’s intricately rendered paintings explore issues of identity, eroticism, mortality and fragility. Within her remarkably detailed works, wildly feral landscapes, ambiguous figures, textiles, and rare and exotic flora and fauna are used, weaving archaic traditions and contemporary signs together into a personal cosmology. Her paintings are rich in detail, colour and texture, collapsing strict definitions of portraiture, landscape and still-life whilst allowing elements of each to coexist.

KIKI KOGELNIK : RIOT OF OBJECTS
Mar 14 - Jul 5, 2020
The first institutional presentation in the UK to focus solely on Kiki Kogelnik’s ceramic works. Considered one of the key figures of the post-war avant-garde, Kogelnik’s multidisciplinary oeuvre spans five decades. Her multi-faceted artistic style evolved from painterly abstraction to Pop Art and the representation of the (female) body. This exhibition demonstrates Kogelnik’s boundless capacity for invention and restless commitment to making.
Her multifaceted artistic style evolved from painterly abstraction to Pop Art and the representation of the (female) body. Consumer culture, technology and feminism were recurring themes throughout her work. Her unique aesthetic is marked with playfulness and humour yet imbued with a stark sense of criticality. In resisting and contesting the lure of post-war capitalist culture in her work, she demarcated herself from her contemporary peers.
