We are very excited to announce the first exhibition in UK by artist Gordon & Mary. The show will represent a comprehensive insight into the work by the artistic partnership since their formation in 2008.
Described as ‘Grand but Intimate’ Gordon & Mary’s art explores the subject of human identity through large richly textured and layered paintings, created in some cases over a number of years, utilizing a process of collaged materials, including fabrics, wood, paper and metals with paint at the heart of each work. The overall effect has a flamboyant, expressionistic appearance in many cases of a dominating central iconic figure.
This accumulative process is also witnessed in their short video pieces, which the artist has been working on recently. In themselves, the videos are like the paintings, where the sequence images are layered and laced together, and dramatised by richly crafted sounds.
As well as paintings and videos the show will have a dedicated room to small works on paper, including drawings and prints.
