Johnnie Cooper: throe on throe

A major survey of work by the acclaimed British artist Johnnie Cooper will take place at Saatchi Gallery, London, opening 19 April 2019. Entitled throe on throe, the exhibition comes at a time of heightened interest in the artist. In 2018, as part of its initiative to re-evaluate key twentieth and twenty-first-century artists, art publisher Black Dog Press produced a monograph documenting Cooper’s 50-year career; and this eagerly-awaited presentation – his first in London in three decades – will be complemented by further shows in the U.K. and America.

Josef Fischnaller: Prächtig

Cadogan Contemporary is delighted to present an exhibition of new works by the Austrian artist Josef Fischnaller. Fischnaller’s artfully constructed photographs are inspired by the compositional styles of Old Master and Renaissance painters; to these, he incorporates modern clothes, products and affectations, such as playmobil models and body piercings, to give them a wry, contemporary twist.

Ilana Manolson: Chance Encounters

Cadogan Contemporary is delighted to present Chance Encounters, an exhibition of recent and new works by the acclaimed Canadian American painter Ilana Manolson. Her first London presentation, the show is comprised of more than 20 acrylic paintings executed between the years 2018 and 2019, in which the artist moves between representation and abstraction to capture the essence of nature.

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.

Mark Fell: A Stitch Outside Time

Focal Point Gallery is delighted to announce an ambitious new sound commission by the artist and musician Mark Fell. Using sound synthesis and pattern generating systems, A Stitch Outside Time is presented in the form of an app that has been designed to uniquely complement journeys on the London to Southend-on-Sea c2c train line, which traverses the towns of Barking, Basildon, Pitsea and Benfleet through to Shoeburyness.
