Upcoming: Modern Mythology

Upcoming: Modern Mythology

The Contemporary London presents Modern Mythology, an exhibition of new and recent works by Lindsey Bull, Adam Dix and Jess Littlewood, that draws on a rich lexicon of imagery to explore our understanding of the world and the constructed belief systems used to navigate it. Central to each of their works are themes and motifs of ritual, religion and mysticism, drawing on resources from folklore, witchcraft, religion, sci-fi and the occult culminating in a private and mysterious, ethereal and haunting mythology that transcends and overlaps between their collective worlds.

Upcoming: Vasilis Avramidis Outskirts

Upcoming: Vasilis Avramidis Outskirts

The Contemporary London is delighted to present ‘Outskirts’, our second solo exhibition of exceptional oil paintings on wood and canvas by Vasilis Avramidis.  Through the prism of painting, art history and memory, Avramidis’ Outskirts is an intricate and intimate exploration and elevation of neglected and dislocated architectural elements, nature and the quotidian. Following the critical acclaim of his first solo sell-out show, Avramidis’ Outskirts is a demonstration of the power of beautiful and exceptional painting to transform quotidian architecture and nature to an engaging and engulfing visual escapism.

Past Event: Collection of Small Paintings

Past Event: Collection of Small Paintings

Private View: Wednesday 4th February 6.30-8.30pm
Exhibition Dates: Thursday 5th February- Sunday 22nd February 2015

Collection of Small Paintings brings together the work of 20 contemporary painters. The show includes new and recent works by Vasilis Avramidis, Adam Dix, Ernesto Canovas, Geoff Diego Litherland, David Wightman, Emma Bennett, John Stark, Jonny Green, Dolly Thompsett, Reginal Aloysius, Lindsey Bull, Mary Wintour, Eleanor Watson, Nicole Sy Coson, Hyojun Hyun, Tom Waring, Ilona Kiss, Alexandra Sinopoulou, Elysia Byrd and Chloe Manasseh. 

The concept of the exhibition stems from the history and tradition of Miniatures and small Cabinet paintings. From the 15th Century, Cabinet paintings were small paintings collected by the wealthy, traditionally showing full-length figures at a small scale kept in a cabinet, a small and private room, to which only those with whom they were on intimate terms with could be admitted. Miniature artworks would decorate and illustrate hand-written books ('Minaire' to colour with red lead, a practise used for the capital letters in old books). 16-18th Century portrait miniatures were popularly used in the arrangement of noble marriages, to show royal allegiance, for private worship, as items of wealth depicting luxury goods, or as mementos of loved ones carried by soldiers or sailors. These small works have a rich tradition and prevalence in a larger collective art history but within this, the works are intimately bound to individuals, marked by intimate viewing pleasure and the personal relationship between object and viewer. A collection of Small Paintings takes this tradition as its startiong point and asks each artist to reinterpret it within the context of their practice.
