Closing This Week

Annka Kultys Gallery – Cecilia Fiona

(22 April – 21 May, 2022) Annka Kultys Gallery is pleased to present Weightless are the Hearts of the Trees, an exhibition of new paintings by the Danish artist Cecilia Fiona. On show are eight of the artist’s immersive rabbit glue paintings that explore the mythical ecosystems where man and nature melt together in a fantastical world imagined by the artist.

Hales – John Hoyland: Flames Like Rainbows

(1 April – 20 May, 2022) Hales is delighted to announce Flames Like Rainbows a solo exhibition of works by John Hoyland. This debut show with Hales focuses on paintings from the mid-1990s to the early 2000s — a key period in Hoyland’s oeuvre, marking a departure from pure abstraction, allowing the outside world to enter his art.

Nicoletti – not before it has forgotten you

(7 April – 21 May, 2022) After a first iteration at The Pole Gallery in Paris (Mar–Apr 2022) – an outdoor display of single artworks on a street pole in Le Marais, where this genuine piece of urban furniture, witnessing the permanency of urban fluxes, operated as a testimony to the impossibility to fixate change – not before it has forgotten you is travelling to NıCOLETTı, London, where it presents commissioned and existing artworks by the four artists.

What's On

Roman Road – Luisa Me: The Crane at the Bottom of the Sea

(11 May – 15 July) In this exhibition, Luisa Me present feelings and findings from their exploration into our ever-expanding cityscapes, supposed urban utopianism and the sun’s role as an omnipresent deity that oversees our search for community and human connection.

Annka Kultys Gallery – Kate Bickmore

(27 May – 25 June, 2022) Kate Bickmore takes one of the most classical subjects of painting – flowers – and gives new life to otherworldly creatures in a unique style and scale. They are uncomfortably alien and beautifully human all at once. Flowers are typically considered pretty decorative objects on the receiving end of our gaze, but Kate makes the viewer feel as if they are watching and wanting us. Possibly even making their own plans… — Jonathan Travis

Modern Art (Helmet Row) – Katy Moran: 300 sun days

(13 May – 18 June, 2022) Katy Moran’s abstract paintings conjure atmospheres – at times suggestive of landscape, still life, or figuration – through her exploration of form, gesture, colour and surface. While the legacy of Expressionism is evident in her painterly language, Moran’s work is firmly grounded in the materiality of painting as object. Her work has methodically concentrated on what kinds of alchemy can be offered up in the pre-existing surface of the readymade — found paintings, frames, or collage — as it combines with her own mark-making.

Lychee One – Lian Zhang: Weathering with You

(6 May – 18 June, 2022) Lychee One proudly presents Weathering with You, a solo exhibition of new work by London-based Chinese artist Lian Zhang. The exhibition is curated by Marcelle Joseph with the exhibition text written by Gabriella Pounds.
