by Guest Blog: Tom Glover - Jul 6, 2017

My show Wet Bread had just completed a successful run at the Brighton Fringe and the King's Head had been pencilled in - but what if Corbynism had been defeated? What if the idealism and the campaigning was proved ineffective by the reality of the election? Would the show just appear so last year? (more...)

DC Moore Gallery Announces Opening of Janet Fish: Pinwheels and Poppies Exhibition
by BWW News Desk - Aug 3, 2017

DC Moore Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of the exhibition, Janet Fish: Pinwheels and Poppies, offering a rare opportunity to view major works the artist produced from 1980 to 2008. The title refers to the joie de vivre with which Fish revitalized the genre of still life painting in the years following her introduction to the New York art world in the late 1960s. Committed to an intense, expressive use of brushstrokes and the verisimilitude of objects, Fish's paintings are filled with spirit, intensity, and irreverent wit. Her work exists in a state of flux, hovering in a space between fluid technique and measured stillness, where each object is animated by color and light. (more...)
