This Comedian – Idil Sukan

Open to the public (free)

Friday 20th February – Sunday 8th March

Monday – Sunday, 12pm-7pm.

Exhibition closes Sunday 8th March 4pm



An exhibition of photographs of comedians from the last decade: A retrospective of Idil Sukan’s creative work in the comedy industry. One of the best known and prolific photographers working in comedy, her work appears across comedy festivals, billboards, the press and has been collected by the National Portrait Gallery. The exhibition will also include a selection of her publicity and poster designs for dozens of comedy shows she has worked on over the years.

Some 200 of Idil’s photographs of live performance will be exhibited including much-loved comedians such as Eddie Izzard, Clive Anderson and Paul Merton; actors who appear in comedy sitcoms and films, including Patrick Stewart, Olivia Colman and Peter Capaldi; and recent breakthrough artists such as Bridget Christie, Daniel Rigby, Alice Lowe and The Penny Dreadfuls. The exhibition will also include never-before-seen-images from around the comedy world and Idil’s famous behind-the-scenes photographs of The Muppets.

“The last decade has seen Idil emerge as one of the UK’s most exciting photographic talents and one of the most prolific creatives working in the comedy industry today” – Nikon Pro Magazine


“Soulful snaps of stand-ups.” – The Guardian


“Idil Sukan’s chief characteristic is surely respect. It’s in her awareness of the power dynamics between photographer and sitter, in her determination to tailor each of her shoots to the idiosyncrasies of a particular show, it’s clear she’s an artist of this moment, the here and now.” – Londonist

Pintora presents PLATFORM

16 March  - 22 March

OPEN TO PUBLIC 10.30 – 6.30

Private View 16 March 6-9.30

In this exhibition, Pintora provides a platform for seven young artists who haven’t yet benefited from representation, and a first sight of many works which have never been shown.

These emerging artists, selected from a new generation of talent, demonstrate the extraordinary diversity, skill and creativity with which art is progressing.

PLATFORM throws a light on a succession of art that pitches itself at the denouement of the hyper-conceptual, dematerialised art of the early twenty-first century. Unafraid of traditional forms and media, this art uses convention as a framework within which to express a spirit of playful individualism.

Programme of events to be announced soon.

46. Mandelbrot I - Mixed media on aluminium 1.8m x 2.7m

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

Artur Malewski – Closed Eyelids Make Us All Dark



Open to Public Saturday 17th January 2015 10 am – 6 pm

PV Friday 16th January 2015 at 6 pm

RSVP to: jacek.zwierzynski@makgallery.com by 10th January 2015

MAK Gallery is pleased to present Artur Malewski’s solo exhibition Closed Eyelids Make Us All Dark.

Artur Malewski’s first solo exhibition in the UK features his latest project Za zamkniętymi powiekami wszyscy jesteśmy czarni (Closed Eyelids Make Us All Dark) which much like his entire work up to date exudes dark and sinister character. Malewski frequently finds inspiration for his work in horror movies and film noir. He is at ease exploring world of urban legends or even occult themes. He brings creepy and disfigured creatures to life. Creatures that might still “populate” the bleakest corners of our mythologies even though we try to deny them. Malewski focuses on otherness” and likes to confront us with beings and occurrences that exist on the borderline between rational, imaginable, tamed and wild, terrifying and absolutely beyond our control…

Antonia Aviva Caffrey – Before I die for Glamour

2rd -8th December

Private view 4th December 6-9pm

At first glance Antonia Aviva Caffrey’s technicoloured mixed-media images are like something from a Disney fairytale, but there are no doe eyed innocents here. Her women are sexualized to the extreme – starved to the point of anorexia and unrelenting in their voracious appetite for men. Antonia’s unsettling and provocative images are replete with a zany sense of humour and a palpable narrative – equivalent to the raging screams of a meltdown.

Born in Ireland in 1989, Antonia spent 8 formative years in Wicklow, living in splendid isolation in Roundwood where she produced her first set of works. Despite her country upbringing, Antonia is a highly attuned to the techno urban landscape: You Tube, Facebook, cinema, TV and glossy magazines. She is profoundly disturbed by the relentless quest for beauty as a product, the compulsive need for her generation to share a highly artificial narrative of their lives, and how readily available porn confounds modern relationships. All this comes pouring out in her work, like a live torrent.
