For November, we have an exhibition by John Franklin Higgins whose work traverses sculpture painting and photography, emerging from an attention to the relationship between production, and the consumptive norms through which we process our information environment. His studio process embraces chance and humour, playing with the idea of artist as agent through which desire and meaning are materialised.
This exhibition opens on Saturday November 6th.
This September, we host a new installation by Mary Yacoob - metallic vinyl artworks inspired by diagrams of surgical instruments from the Wellcome Collection. Mysterious and biomorphic abstractions emerge from the visual legacy of the history of medicine.
This August we are exhibiting a series of drawings by E.L Campbell.
The work in the show is drawn from both the observation of natural forms and growth combined with intuitive drawing to create hybrid ambiguous images reflecting on light, space, fragility, movement and change.
In June we have an exhibition of Wojciech Rusin's 3D printed pipes. 3D printing technology reflects the surface of the mind, as in an alchemical laboratory the processes of chemicals, of material transmutation, reflect the processes of the alchemist’s mind. The spools of plastic are full of endless potential and can be transformed into ‘buckets’ or ‘jewels’ at any point. 3D printed plastic fuels the Deleuzian ‘desiring machine’.
In April we have a new exhibition called 'Managing Expectations: Lockdown Easel', which will take the form of a collection of Oliver Baggott's small-scale anthropomorphic faux naïf abstractions and death stare-down phantascapes.
All the paintings were created in a subterranean studio in the basement of a church on top of the Penton mound close to the rumoured location of Merlin's cave.
The inaugural show at SURGERY.GALLERY will take place early December 2020 featuring an installation by Christos Fanaras called
Wall (Disturbed Meditation). It started out as some theraputic doodling on his kitchen wall which over a number of years grew to encompass a very large area. Recently during renovations builders tore the wall down, fortunately however Christos was able to rescue parts of the demolished wall. What we have on display are the surviving pieces of plasterboard, with the accompanying doodles.
Christos Fanaras is also a accomplished musician; currently a member of the psychedelic drone duo
Elephant House, as well as the bassist in
Tim Burgess and
Daniel O'Sullivan's groups.
