Daniel Sinsel

PV: 10 June, 6-8PM

10 June – 13 August, 2022

This June, Daniel Sinsel presents a group of new and recent works – encompassing painting, assemblage and sculpture – marking his sixth solo exhibition at Sadie Coles HQ. Throughout the body of work, Sinsel mediates conventional notions of flatness and spatial tension, articulating unresolved scenographies that teeter on the threshold between illusion and reality. Meticulously rendered in alluring, near psychedelic fields of colour, the imagery is invested with a built-in tension of desire and restraint, through which Sinsel probes the manifold, often concealed narratives of queer experience.

Henni Alftan: Contour

PV: 9 June, 6-8PM

10 June – 30 July, 2022

Contour is Henni Alftan’s first gallery show in London and presents new works that continue her exploration into the relation between the medium of painting and the conceptual idea of image-making.

In her practice, Alftan examines the threshold where personal connection and recognition transform paint into image and image into meaning. Based on a process of observation and deduction, her figurative works are constructions of lines, proportions and flat planes of colors, interspersed with intricate patterns and details.

André Butzer: Wanderer

PV: 9 June, 6-PM

9 June – 30 July, 2022

One of many wanderers on this planet earth, André Butzer (b. 1973, Stuttgart), seeking his own place, explores the essence of humanity, its extremes inherently interlinked, and one aspect impossible to realise without its opposite. Since the 1990s, he has grappled with his legacy, artistic and political, with the likes of Henry Ford, Walt Disney and Henri Matisse as his “patron saints.” Butzer journeys via the conduit of his paintings, themselves portals into the world of NASAHEIM, a utopian universe created by the artist as an ever-unattainable measure to aspire to.

Painter and sculptor Randy Wray lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He graduated from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and received his B.F.A. from the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Sung Jik Yang: Angelanos

PV: 10 June, 6-8PM

11 June – 1 July, 2022

Samuele Visentin is proud to present Angelanos – a solo presentation of works by Sung Jik Yang (b. South Korea, 1989). The show comprises 12 works on canvas and is presented at the Georgian townhouse of 3 Fournier Street, London.

Sung Jik Yang paints friends and acquaintances and mostly deals with the portrayal of young people, a sharp sensible generation that represents our present and future. His freely brushed colours take precedence over lines and contours, and emotive strokes are intentionally not blended or smooth, as if to capture the beautiful indeterminacy of youth. The artist cites Alice Neel, Fairfield Porter, and Edouard Manet as his main influences, primarily for their palette, tenderness, and elegance.

PV: 8 June, 6-8PM

9 June – 2 July, 2022

For the artist’s second exhibition with the gallery and debut solo exhibition in London, Liernur continues her exploration of quotidian city life through a series of monochromatic figurative paintings that depict everyday life through the surreptitious gaze.

Andrew Pierre Hart + Alexandria Smith: When Cosmologies Meet

7 June – 2 July, 2022

PV: Tuesday, 7 June: 5-8PM

Tiwani Contemporary is very pleased to present When Cosmologies Meet. The exhibition is a manifestation of an ongoing conversation between gallery artist Andrew Pierre Hart and artist Alexandria Smith. Both artists bring their respective approaches and logics to worlding environments unbound from the limitations defining human experience as we recognise it. These environments perceive utopias that permit an expansion of sensory perception, experience, knowledge and kinship, enabling co-existence.

Cob Gallery is proud to present a group exhibition of work by Tomas Harker, Mia Middleton, Jack Jubb and Caroline Zurmely. Borrowing its name from the Greek word meaning to ward off or avert evil, ‘Apotrope’ brings together four artists who share an understanding of painting as an alchemical process: a material transformation that invests its subjects with magical energy.

Katherine Bernhardt: Why is a mushroom growing in my shower?

Opening: 8 June

Taking place at the gallery’s London location, the exhibition will feature new large-scale paintings that include motifs from Bernhardt’s unique visual lexicon, which culls from an irreverent American pop vernacular as well as her own life and the broader culture. These works crackle with electrifying colour and the artist’s lively brushwork, and feature familiar imagery such as the Pink Panther, Garfield, and E.T., in addition to fresh subjects like Ditto from Pokémon, Crocs shoes, psilocybin mushrooms, and bathroom showers.
