Go Go Boots and Beehive hairdos of the ‘60s are back in Hampstead! The Pop Art movement evolved in the late 1950s in the US and UK. Half a century later, paintings by Warhol et al are museum pieces, but the spirit of Pop – its fascination with imagery from popular culture - advertising, packaging, comic books and mundane cultural objects - undoubtedly lives on in the work of many contemporary artists. Our new exhibition gathers together a group of ten artists directly influenced by Pop Art, including works by Peter Blake, Deborah Azzopardi and Walasse Ting.
Richard Twose is a master of the 'non finito', where paintings are carried only to a point, leaving the spectator to fill in for themself. As well as portraits, his beautifully crafted paintings reference, amongst other things, Greek myths, British folklore and quantum physics. We welcome back the award winning artist for his second solo exhibition.
In the early 1970s, Poul Webb travelled to Yugoslavia in search of the exotic. He found it. The landscapes reminded him of the work of Grant Wood. Poul began experimenting. He produced beguiling landscape paintings, brightly coloured and arranged in pleasing geometric patterns. This was the origin of a style that Poul is still pursuing, an approach that has made him one of the UK's most acclaimed landscape painters.
