Art & Language 

1969 - Chipping Norton

 

Art & Language is a conceptual artists' collaboration that has undergone many changes since it was created in the late 1960s. The group was founded by artists who shared a common desire to combine intellectual ideas and concerns with the creation of art. The first issue of the group's journal, Art-Language, was published in November 1969 in Chipping Norton in England, and was an important influence on conceptual art in the United States and the United Kingdom

Katz Allison

1980 - London

 

Allison Katz, London. Allison Katz is a painter who investigates and pushes the conventions and history of Western painting. Her work rejects formal or thematic coherence—within the picture plane or throughout the artist’s oeuvre—and therefore resists the labeling of a style.

 

Avoiding narrative or continuity, the artist instead chooses to approach each canvas anew, taking on different personas, and sometimes forcing opposing tastes to coexist uncomfortably within a single tableau. Motifs do reappear—black pears, strawberries, monkeys, noses, silhouettes, roosters, clocks—but less as representations or signatures, and more as a visual lexicon which allows her to expand and distort their meanings in an ongoing meditation on the nature of representation and the elasticity of symbols.

 

Exemplary of her dedication to approaching subjects freshly, Adele is a portrait series that Katz has continued to return to since 2011. Painted on leather swatches, the artist does not wish to portray a continuing likeness or demeanor of her friend, but rather to capture her impression of the sitter each time they meet. Marked by skillful improvisation, her painting is often described as exuding a playful wittiness, or “joie d’esprit.”  

 

Katz’s work has been shown in solo exhibitions at Johan Berggren Gallery in Malmö, Sweden, Battat Contemporary in Montreal, and BFA Boatos in Sao Paulo. She has also been included in group exhibitions at ScuptureCenter in New York, and Tate Britain in London (as part of a performance by Tai Shani). She is the recipient of the Rema Hort Mann Foundation Grant.

lipski Edward

1971 - London

Edward Lipski is an artist and sculptor known for successfully expressing uncomfortable places in the human psyche through super-real mannequins as well as cartoonlike figures. His work often has a certain unsettling playfulness to it, distinguishing his particular approach to the grotesque. Lipski has said of his art: “My sculptures are mistakes in the same way language itself is kind of a mistake… language is an approximation, an attempt to describe the world, but an attempt that is doomed to fail”. By combining his conceptual thought process with this pre-linguistic means of conveying imagery, Lipski’s work stands apart from the current generation of young British artists.

Pybus Michael

1982 - London

Appropriating visual sources and phrases from all corners of modern culture, British artist Michael Pybus uses the language of contemporary society as a means of commentary on consumerism and the icons of our era.  Creating dynamic pastiches of various ephemera from advertising, television, and other aspects of popular culture, Pybus uses his art as a vehicle for both himself and the viewer of his work to consider the ways in which our identities and existence are formed by these various elements. His goal is to encourage a critical look to the ways in which these fragments come together to frame our world, and in doing so he begins to dismantle it.  

 

Born in 1982, Pybus earned his BA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College in London in 2004 and subsequently completed his MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art in 2006. He has been an active exhibitor of his work in locations around the world.

 

Recent solo exhibitions include “Hive Mind” at Jonathan Hopson Gallery in Houston, Texas, and “Pretend the world is funny and forever” at Amor in Mexico City, Mexico (2017); “soft play” at Lungley in London, United Kingdom (2018); and “Reality Apathy” at Tatjana Pieters in Ghent, Belgium (2019).

Saccone Gino

1979 - UK

 

British artist Gino Saccone works in a variety of media, creating chaotic, cacophonous exhibitions that address the communication of information—and the way we digest the glut of it today. Along those lines, he explores the mutability of objects and language in sculptures and drawings by arranging color and texture into form, often referencing numbers. Two-dimensional objects are interjected into three-dimensional space, as gestural, childlike paintings of flowers wrap around corners, and colored textiles based on scanned watercolors and computer-generated forms (as in _L7_, a collaboration with Elliot Dodd) are set at the intersection of the wall and the floor. Similarly, Saccone explores the relationship between dimensions in textiles based on the autostereogram, a technology that allows flat images to be seen in 3D.

Walker Caroline

1982 - Scotland

Caroline Walker’s large-scale paintings and intimate drawings focus on women within psychologically charged public spaces such as hotels and beauty parlors. As a cohesive body of work, her paintings hint at a larger narrative that is never fully revealed to the viewer.
