Unclaimed Children - Solo Show by the Artist Trate


Unclaimed Children by Trate

Opening on June 6, Unclaimed Children is Canadian artist Trate’s second London-based show.

The evocative canvases exhibited in Unclaimed Children capture elements of the human condition through a vivid palette of reimagined physical forms.  

Bereft of any depth of field, the piercing eyes and arresting bodies on the canvases draw the viewer into a humanistic dialogue.

As an autodidact - and working under an alias that alludes to the human traits he paints -  Trate’s work evokes a haunting, childlike aesthetic.

Some of the paintings offer plaintive reflections on melancholy and loss, while others offer fleeting glimpses into solace and contentment.      

“Framed against vividly coloured backgrounds”, says Stephanie Silva, curator of Unclaimed Children, “the iconic figures offer a humane  window for us to stare into and reflect on the intimate experiences that define us.”

Unclaimed Children will run from June 5 -  28 at 45 Vyner Street, E2 9DQ. For more information please see tratestudios.com
