Emojimio, an exhibition of new work by printmaker Ron Henocq

About

Matt’s Gallery presents Emojimio, an exhibition of new work by Ron Henocq. Accompanying the exhibition is a free publication including a text by Dean Kenning.

For 36 years Henocq has been an active force in the London art scene and a pillar of the Bermondsey arts community, founding and directing the Bermondsey Artist Group and Cafe Gallery (now CGP London). Throughout this period, he has never stopped making and is now focussing again on his own practice.

The artist’s presence is felt throughout 92 Webster Road, where he has lived and worked. Keen eyes will spot his drawings in cement visible from the garden, Matt’s Gallery is currently in residence in his studio as we prepare to open our new gallery space in Nine Elms (due April 2020).

Henocq is a printmaker who gathers and creates images, drawing from mythology, alchemy, mysticism and magic. He combines and re-orders these into assemblages that create and inscribe meaning and narrative. In previous works he has collaged and printed over photographs from the vast collection he has created throughout a lifetime of travels.

Emojimio is an ambitious site-specific installation conceived especially for our 3x3x3 metre cubic gallery space. In a new departure for Henocq, he will let his lino-cut motifs, characters and icons escape the page and the frame and roam the walls of the gallery creating a mise en scène of suggested narrative and stories.

Matt’s Gallery thanks the Arts Council England and Ron Henocq Fine Art for their generous support.
