Private View: Ken Currie, Rictus
7 November, 6:00 – 8:00pm
Whitened Hands, 2017, Oil on panel
Since the early 1990s, Scottish artist Ken Currie has been known for his closely observed and often unsettling portrayal of the body, depicting the damage inflicted by war and conflict, illness and decay as a response to what he felt was the sickness of contemporary society. Currie’s rich, luminous paintings address the tragic themes of modernity, balancing the opposing imagery of mechanised destruction and degradation with the generative, creative potential of the human body.
Please join us on Tuesday 7th October from 6-8 PM for the Private View of Ken Currie's Rictus. The exhibition will be on view at Flowers Gallery, Cork Street, London until 9 December, 2017.
