Click to enlargeKEN CURRIE : RED GROUND
Feb 22 - Apr 27, 2019 FINAL WEEK
Scottish artist Ken Currie is renowned for his unsettling portrayal of the human figure. Depicting the damage inflicted by war and conflict, illness and decay, Currie provides a response to brutality and suffering in contemporary society. Rising to attention within a generation of painters known as The New Glasgow Boys in the 1980s, Currie is well known for his public murals commissioned for the People’s Palace in Glasgow, as well as his enduringly popular artwork from the Scottish National Portrait Gallery Collection Three Oncologists, representing a life-long study of the fragility of the human condition.
 
In this solo exhibition of new works, Currie’s rich, luminous paintings depict mysterious rites, rituals, and quasi-medical practices, offering a meditation on violence in its many guises.

TOM LOVELACE : INTERVAL
Feb 22 - Apr 27, 2019 FINAL WEEK
British artist Tom Lovelace works at the intersection of photography, sculpture and performance to create multi-layered, site-specific installations. In this solo exhibition at Flowers Gallery, Lovelace presents a new body of work focusing on conceptual ideas of ‘theatre’, to explore spaces and encounters where the real, imagined and performed converge and intertwine.
 
Interval brings together several of Lovelace’s most recent Assembly Works, an ongoing series of assemblages centred around photography and, significantly, involving elements of bodily intervention. The exhibition discreetly explores the interstices of the gallery, working in-between the hidden and public aspects of its internal architecture.

ESTHER TEICHMANN : ON SLEEPING AND DROWNING
May 3 - Jun 22, 2019
Private view Thu May 2 6pm - 8pm
Flowers Gallery is delighted to announce a solo exhibition by London-based artist Esther Teichmann. Working with photography across still and moving image installations, Teichmann looks at the relationships between loss, desire and the imaginary, slipping between autobiography and fiction.
 
On Sleeping and Drowning transforms the gallery space into a layered liquid montage of photographs, painted backdrops, moving image, sound and objects. Cyanotype seaweed creatures are juxtaposed with painted photographic backdrops of caves, a boat with cloud sails, and photographs of women sleeping, dreaming and swimming through otherworldly spaces.

SHEN WEI
May 3 - Jun 22, 2019
Private view Thu May 2 6pm - 8pm
Flowers Gallery is delighted to announce the first major UK solo exhibition by New York-based Chinese artist Shen Wei. The exhibition brings together works from several series from 2009 to the present day, incorporating photography and moving image.
 
Responding to his conservative upbringing in Shanghai, Shen Wei’s self-portraits, nudes and sensuous landscape photographs explore notions of identity, memory and sexuality. This exhibition draws connections between the influence of Chinese culture and his own personal process of self-discovery.
