Katie Sims, Opening Gambit


We are very pleased to announce that Hoxton Art Gallery are presenting Opening Gambit, a solo exhibition by British artist, Katie Sims from the 12th of October - 10th of November. Although this is her first solo show in London, Sims' work has already been celebrated with two solo shows in the UK. In January this year curator Pryle Berhman described Sims as 'one to watch' from Britain's new generation of artists in the article ‘How to spot the next Damien Hirst' - The Independent. Sims is known for paying homage to masters from the early Renaissance and Baroque periods. A particular theme that runs through her practice is the subversion of classical and mythological constructs seen in masters such as Mantegna and Poussin. Among the artworks in the show will be a large scale oil painting inspired by Uccello's Battle of San Romano in the National Gallery's collection, London, and a variety of works influenced by pieces in the Museo del Prado, Madrid, where the artist recently completed a residency. Virginia Verran is an artist living and working in London. She has exhibited widely in Britain and internationally including at the Henie-Onsad Kunstsenter, Norway, Frueshorge Contemporary Drawings, Berlin, Newlyn Gallery, Cornwall, and Transition Gallery, London. In 2010 she won the grand Jerwood Drawing Prize. She teaches at Chelsea College of Art and Design and University College Falmouth.
