TJ Boultingpresents the gallery’s first solo show with South African artist HelenA Pritchard.
A 2011 graduate from the Royal College of Art MA in Painting, since then her work has expanded beyond the realms of painting into the sculptural, the object and most recently beyond that into the extra dimension of light. The common thread between them all being her utilisation of form, colour and material.
I had the chance to speak with Helen about her artistic practise and upcoming exhibition.
Over the last few years Nick Campbell has built a reputation as London’s go to consultant for finding artworks under £10,000.
After studying History of Art and Arts Management at Oxford Brookes University, Nick worked at some high-end galleries such as Emmanuel Perrotin, Haunch of Venison, Victoria Miro, White Cube and Christies in New York. Since 2013 Nick has dedicated all of his time to developing Narcissus Arts and it’s sister company, Narcissus Interiors. In 2014 Spears Magazine chose Nick as the UK’s best art consultant under 35.
I had the chance to speak to Nick about Narcissus Arts and the state of London’s emerging art scene.
It’s not often one sees an artwork that is truly unlike any art one has ever experienced in the past, but I can say with certainty that such was the case for me with William Kentridge: More Sweetly Play the Dance at Marian Goodman, London. In fact, the work from which the exhibition borrows its’ title, an 8-screen film piece described by the gallery as ‘dance macabre,’ is perhaps the most inspiring work of art I’ve ever seen, and one that has pleasantly haunted me in the two weeks since I visited the show.
The experience goes something like this: After admiring a series of stunning, mostly black and white, paintings downstairs, which blend Chinese cultural artifacts with images of flowers painted on found paper swimming in Chinese characters, you enter a room, which introduces you to Kentridge’s video art.
