Shades of Yellow

22 April  - 25 April 11am – 6pm

Private View 21 April 6-9pm

 

Some might say that yellow is the colour of the intellect, that it inspires original thought and inquisitiveness. It is as much a state of mind as it is a Hue. Calmness, fear, joy, cowardice, canaries, lemons, sunsets, jaundice and piss, the colour evokes a set of associations that trigger a wide range of possibilities. Shades Of Yellow provides a new platform for a group of emerging artists to exhibit in London. Selected from recent UK graduates, the exhibition covers a range of disciplines including painting, printmaking, sculpture, performance and installation.

Blasphemy – Lakhveer Azad

Open to Public: Tuesday 18th August- Sunday 23rd  August 2015, 10.30am-5.30pm, free entry

Private View: Friday 21st August 2015, 6-9pm

Blasphemy is the second solo exhibition of emerging artist Lakhveer Azad.

Blasphemy is a series of about 40 paintings celebrating the right to criticize. Blasphemy hails the right to question, ridicule and deconstruct anything. Lakhveer believes that there is nothing sacred and thus there is absolutely nothing which can be blasphemed against. He concludes the act of blasphemy does not exist; ‘a world in which you can have your ideas crushed, deconstructed and falsified is indeed the only world worth living in.’

The paintings are bold, iconoclastic, playful and comedic. They’re a rich assortment of colour, style, point of attack and texture. Lakhveer invites you into the worlds of punch lines, into the worlds you believe shouldn’t be formed because they’re not allowed, into the worlds of white noise absurdity which you’d only notice as such if you stepped back.

Blasphemy does not aim to shake anyone’s belief and neither does it believe itself able to do so, however it hopes to make you laugh at it.

Gordon Davidson : EXPEDITION

Tuesday March 24 - Sunday March 29 2015

10.00am / 6.30pm

 

Private viewing – Thursday 26 March between 5.00 / 9.00.

 

 

The Embassy Tea Gallery is pleased to present Expedition, a solo exhibition of around 50 works by Gordon Davidson that brings together the results of years of experimentation in use of pigments and materials with immersion in viewing the natural world in new ways, both at the macro and micro levels. Gordon’s Aluminium Paintings are highly decorative, sensuous images, many based on his travels throughout Morocco. These works exploit light and the inherent reflectivity of the material to bring an entirely new dimension, changing the nature of his images in different lights at different times of the day, as well as enhancing the richness of colours and form.

 

Gordon’s Earth Portraits have evolved from examining the behaviour of different types of pigments in combination with different base materials to create new, 3 dimensional ‘colour topographies’ that invite the viewer to go on their own ‘expedition’ into unexplored terrain reminiscent of satellite images of the Earth.  This is further explored within a series of 3-D reliefs using a variety of materials that explores the boundaries between painting and sculpture.

 

Exhibited works and others can also be viewed and purchased from 1st March onwards at : www.gordondavidsonmodernart.com
