Wednesday Late at Flowers Gallery Cork Street
29 November, 6:00 – 9:00pm
Ken Currie, The Flensers (Detail), 2016, Oil on canvas
Join us on Wednesday 29th November, for special extended hours and an opportunity to view Ken Currie's Rictus exhibition until 9pm.
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.
Exhibition continues until 9th December, 2017 at Flowers Gallery, 21 Cork Street, London W1.
