(27 May – 2 July, 2022) The Approach is pleased to present a selection of works in the Annexe by the late English painter Jeffery Camp (b.1923, d.2020). The exhibition focuses on works from his later life where Camp used small unusually shaped canvases as part of the composition of the paintings, combining highly individual figure compositions with tender studies of nature and paintings of sea and shore, as well as portraits of friends and contemporaries.
What's On: East London
Opening This Week
(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
Closing This Week
(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.
(11 May – 11 June, 2022) Through a new body of work created in dialogue, both artists explore the act of storytelling. Dissecting the linear narratives to which their practices and characters have been bound, they in turn reveal an unrestricted freedom of identity.
(11 May – 2 July, 2022) Flowers Gallery is delighted to announce a solo exhibition by London-based artist Victoria Cantons. Alongside film and text-based works, this exhibition features a thematic cycle of large paintings that track the artist’s own transgender history, to reflect on issues of identity and what it means to be a woman.
(13 May – 24 June, 2022) Tabula Rasa Gallery London is pleased to present I thought it was dead; It thought it was spring, the first UK solo exhibition of the Chinese artist Dan Zhu for the 2022 edition of London Gallery Weekend.
(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.
6 May – 25 June, 2022
(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.
