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.

Mar 28 - May 5, 2019
Private view Thu Mar 28 6pm - 9pm
In her new exhibition, The American Colony, Oppenheim highlights her unique ability to translate historical subjects and early methods of photo-making through contemporary experimental darkroom processes. In these new works, the artist explores stereoscopy in particular, a technique popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries for its pseudo-3D effect in which two images of the same object are taken from slightly different angles and then are optically merged through a viewing device.

SAM WINDETT : REMODEL
Mar 28 - May 5, 2019
Private view Thu Mar 28 6pm - 9pm
For Remodel, British artist Sam Windett will exhibit recent paintings in The Annexe, produced through his distinctive process of layering paint and paper. Windett works through a system of continuously adding and subtracting materials, modelling and remodelling the canvas surface to create paintings caught somewhere between abstraction, narrative and representation.
