Dec 1, 2018 - Jan 26, 2019 FINAL WEEK
A selection of paintings spanning forty years from the 1970s until the present, drawn from Malcolm Ryan’s wide subject matter. The paintings are a kind of night journey, we are escorted to view scenes of domestic intimacy, to travel through night landscapes and to view the busy street scenes of great cities. We are made to become aware, to view our everyday lives imbued with the poetry of the painter’s eye.

JOSEPHINE MECKSEPER
Nov 17, 2018 - Mar 3, 2019
MOSTYN, Wales UK is pleased to present both existing work and new commissions in the first solo exhibition in Wales, by German born and New York based artist Josephine Meckseper.
 
One of the foremost female artists of her generation working today, Meckseper melds the aesthetic language of modernism with the formal language of commercial display, combining them with her own images and film footage of historical undercurrents and political protest movements. Throughout her installations and vitrines, by simultaneously exposing and encasing common signifiers, such as advertisements and everyday objects, next to abstract paintings and sculptures she creates a window into the collective unconscious of our time.
 
At the core of the exhibition will be a mirrored vitrine, and a set of glass, acrylic sheeting and stainless steel sculptures, along with two dimensional and film work.

Click to enlargeLOUISA GAGLIARDI : UNDER THE WEATHER
Nov 17, 2018 - Mar 3, 2019
The first solo exhibition in a UK institution of the work of Switzerland born and Zurich based artist Louisa Gagliardi.
 
Gagliardi’s work pulls apart the construction of an image, and of our society, in a digital age while appearing to explore the codes and history of painting. Her works pose questions around ideas of figure and ground, flatness and depth. Working digitally initially – using a freehand digital illustration tool – her pieces are later seemingly translated into paintings.
 
Presenting both new and existing works, this exhibition places a spotlight on the defining factors of Gagliardi’s practice, which has also turned to the location of the gallery for inspiration. In various ways, the works explore the urban environment and the countryside, and the conflict that can arise between the two.
 
This exhibition has been made possible thanks to generous support of Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia and the assistance of Rodolphe Janssen, Brussels.
