Opening This Week

Wilder – Lera Dubitskaya: Corolor Pictulures

(18 May – 17 June, 2022) Spectral beasts haunt the paintings of Lera Dubitskaya. Emerging from undergrowth or luminous pattern, they sink away again into floridity, their long serpentine limbs dissolving into the haze. These creatures disperse the taxonomical boundaries between mammal and reptile, human and animal, person and place. Dubitskaya’s works evoke mythologies of metamorphosis, enacting chimerical shifts that take place before the viewer’s eyes and celebrating the transformative power of the imagination.

BEERS London – Peter Matthews: Shape Shifter

(22 May – 11 June, 2022) Peter Matthews’ works have always been about how we, as individuals and a greater society of people, have to keep adjusting to the uncertainty and ambiguity of life and the natural world. Matthews presents his fourth solo exhibition with the gallery, and as always, the nomadic artist effortlessly combines painting and drawing with a greater holistic view of the natural world as it shifts around us.

John Martin Gallery – Uwe Walther: Map Paintings, 2018-22

(27 April – 20 May, 2022) “My paintings tend towards the classical legacy of landscape painting (inevitably slightly romanticised), but without taking away from the nature of the map. I want to keep the image readable, the tempera of the painting and the printed filigree of the map’s surface must work together and balance their separate perspectives: one, a bird’s eye view that is read close to, the other, a landscape, viewed from the distance.” – Uwe Walther

Samuele Visentin – Danse Macabre

(5 May – 21 May, 2022) Samuele Visentin is pleased to announce the group show Danse Macabre.

Cob Gallery – Cat Roissetter: Rural Scenes

(21 April – 21 May, 2022) Opening a new window onto the artist’s subversive dream-world – an unsettling, equivocal space that emerges from a distinctively English cultural imaginary – ‘Rural Scenes’ finds Roissetter turning away from the pencil and crayon of her earlier work. Instead, she uses oil paint on gesso-primed timber surfaces. The layered translucency of the drawings cedes place to a markedly thicker, darker tonal register, yet in other ways the transition is a natural one: Roissetter’s earlier use of graphite and wax in combination with linseed oil already had a liquid, painterly quality about it, and the shift to oil paint allows this to emerge with a new and different force.

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.

Saatchi Yates – Kottie Paloma

(31 March – 22 May, 2022) Paloma’s paintings explore the darker side of society in a humorous yet poignant and gritty manner. Heavily inspired by cave paintings and other archetypal symbols, Paloma creates works which look to act as fossils of contemporary life tackling subjects such as politics and human behavior, to unpick the failings of modern society.
