  1. David Clarke, Solo Exhibition
    Nutida Svenskt Silver, Stockholm
    Opens 1st September 2012 until 26th September

    IN FLUX

    Nutida Svenskt Silver will be Clarke’s first solo exhibition in Sweden and an exciting opportunity to present a new body of work using the table as his playground. He will be introducing a new family of slightly surreal characters, reworking what were hopeless unwanted objects from the past. He will give these un-loved, often mal-functioning pieces a new lease of life for the everyday. Using the common form of the jug he will toy with the notion of function and dysfunction. These objects will not only bring a smile to your face but also will celebrate the skilful nature of their construction.

    Clarke is often cited as one of the UK’s most highly innovative silversmiths. As a maker he is willing to push the boundaries of his chosen discipline and has an ability to poke holes in its inflated values, and to challenge longstanding assumptions about the craft.

    Glenn Adamson, Head of Research and Curator of ‘Postmodernism’ at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London regards Clarke as “one of the strongest silversmiths currently working and easily the most prominent avant-garde figure in the medium in the UK today.”

  3. Emily Roz
    Ripe
    November 7th – December 28th
    Opening: Friday November 7th, 7-9
    Front Room Gallery
    147 Roebling St. Brooklyn, NY
    The paintings in Emily Roz’s exhibition “Ripe” will surely make you blush. Referencing seedpods of a specific Southern Magnolia tree from the artist’s youth in Chapel Hill, these lush, tactile paintings exude the sexuality of the reproduction system of the Magnolia grandiflora. The large, cone-like forms of the Magnolia fruit are made from multiple ovaries, which bear vivid red seeds, that hang from the individual follicles by long silken threads. Roz’s depiction of these intimate parts of the pods is done at a larger scale, which arouses one’s desire for closer inspection.

    Emily Roz exaggerates the visceral and sensual qualities? of the pods through the use of saturated colors and the ?drama of baroque light. Roz enhances the shallow visual ?depth with the macro-texture of each form. She captures ?each minute detail of the final stages of propagation as ?the hard, lustrous crimson seeds protrude and penetrate their tantalizing furry enclosures. The exacting detail of these structures is counterbalanced by her use of the flat blue negative space surrounding the pods. These seemingly infinite fields of color paired with intense detail are inspired by Roz’s love of Northern Renaissance and Flemish paintings that use color in both realistic and symbolic ways.

    “These paintings are my way of flirting. They want to turn you on, in a painting kind of way. Their texture and shapes may make you blush while their color and light appeals to you on a more cerebral level. Plants and animals have evolved for their essential purpose: to procreate. In these paintings I explore how both artworks and people pull out all the stops to get attention. These paintings are reminders of the universal impulse to use whatever resources we have to attract and connect, physically, emotionally or intellectually.”
