FREYA PAYNE : RETURNING

Click to enlargeJOHN KEANE : TWELVE SELVES
Feb 22 - Apr 7, 2018
A new exhibition at Flowers Gallery, Cork Street, will focus on Keane’s most recent series of paintings, which centre on a single self-portrait image. The exhibition of paintings, many obscured and transformed with reactive metallic paints, examines the nature of self reflection, and how experience can inform our understanding of self.
 
The series Twelve Selves started with the image used for the self portrait Fear No.1, produced in 2013, in which Keane placed himself in the role of a victim of the NKVD, Stalin’s secret police, alongside a series of sourced imagery surrounding the Moscow show trials that took place during the 1930s. Keane has described the series as attempting to “tease out the essence of the most fundamental driver of human reaction, usually found at the root of all violence - fear.”

NANCY FOUTS : DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE
Apr 12 - May 12, 2018
American-born artist Nancy Fouts is best known for her distinctive sculptural works, which reconfigure commonplace objects and materials with a characteristically playful and provocative humour. Combining Surrealism, Dada and Pop Art, her work brings together seemingly disconnected objects and ideas to revel in the inherent strangeness of the everyday.
 
The present exhibition addresses the recurring themes throughout Fouts’ work, such as time, nature, and religious iconography, and includes key pieces from the past decade, alongside new works on view for the first time.
