Trate: Emotive Brutes

Albany Arts Communications is delighted to announce the first exhibition in London of work by Trate, the Canadian figurative artist, which opens on 7 February 2019. Entitled Emotive Brutes, the show is comprised of a suite of large-scale works in oil, all executed between 2017 and 2018. The paintings display Trate’s haunting, childlike aesthetic, chronicling the human condition through traceable brush strokes and reimagined facial traits, layered over distinctive colour patterns.

Nigel Shafran: The People on the Street

Albany Arts Communications would like to announce the publication of The People on the Street, a new book by the acclaimed photographer Nigel Shafran. Known for his objective yet intimate approach to capturing the everyday, in this book Shafran reverses the direction of the camera, turning himself into its subject matter. Between 2016 and 2017 Shafran approached vulnerable people living on the street in London and Paris, and asked them to take his photograph.

Janette Kerr: North

Cadogan Contemporary is delighted to present North, an exhibition of new works by the acclaimed seascape artist Janette Kerr. The show is formed of two bodies of work – one recording a three-week period Kerr spent on board a three masted schooner sailing up the coast of Svalbard in Norway up to the Arctic Circle; the second deriving from the Shetland Islands, where the artist lives half of the year.
