Opening Reception: George Blacklock - The Body Singing

26 April, 6:00 – 8:00pm

Flowers Gallery is delighted to announce a solo exhibition of paintings by British artist George Blacklock. Over several decades, Blacklock’s works have been concerned with a balance of figuration and abstraction, responding to the body in both their subject matter and their methods of construction. His paintings reflect a sensitive response to phenomena in the surrounding world, from atmosphere and color to sound and music.

The paintings in the current exhibition represent Blacklock’s pursuit of what he has termed “the beauty of release; the joy of a kind of imagined freedom… of who you are behind closed doors.” Blacklock compares his vigorous and intuitive working process to the acts of dancing or singing, a kinesthetic approach to painting where innate bodily knowledge is glimpsed through the act of making. The curvilinear shapes created by the sweep of the artist’s brush or metal scraper across the surface of the canvas provide a record of the figure in movement, arranging the pictorial space of the painting in accordance with the physical gestures of the body.

Join us on Thursday April 26 for the Opening Reception of George Blacklock's The Body Singing at Flowers Gallery New York.
