The Approach is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of drawings and paintings by the late American painter Bill Lynch. Following a much-admired solo presentation by The Approach at Frieze New York in the Spring of 2017 and the publication of the artist’s first monograph together with Ridinghouse and White Columns, this will be the second exhibition of this refreshing oeuvre at the gallery.

CAITLIN KEOGH : ALPHABET AND DAGGERS
Oct 1 - Nov 11, 2018
The Approach is pleased to host the debut solo exhibition in London by New York-based artist Caitlin Keogh.
 
In this exhibition of new works, Caitlin Keogh revisits anatomical themes, depicted in an illustrational style emphasising line and clarity. Keogh’s paintings are body-like, containing borders that permit exchange but that can also knot densely within themselves. This group of works returns to the motif of the intestine, literal and symbolic, imagining the torso’s interior as the site of painting. Metabolism and digestion play out in The Cat, showing a cat licking itself in front of the bones of a bird, and in Discipline Has Replaced Despair, with a stylised graphic indicating the passage of matter through the gut by the turning hands of a clock. But rather than considering these notions in purely visceral terms, the work refers more broadly to consuming, processing, and organising information.

SARA CWYNAR : ROSE GOLD
Oct 1 - Nov 11, 2018
Cwynar’s film Rose Gold (2017) focuses on Apple’s Rose Gold iPhone, tracking how the phone acts as a talisman of desire for objects, people, power, and money. Released in September 2015, the Rose Gold iPhone was already outdated during the film’s production – superseded by the perpetual release of newer and more advanced models. Thus, in 2018, the Rose Gold iPhone is already a relic, an anachronistic icon that epitomises the successes and speed of modern technology, which leaves even the most recent of inventions behind in order to keep reincarnating, updating, improving.
 
The film considers how individuals — the artist as one of its protagonists – negotiate complicated feelings of love and hate for commercial objects and how features, such as 3D Touch, resonate directly with the user’s emotions and imagination.
