Tour led by Jennifer Gilbert and Russell Tovey
1 - 2pm
Join us at Flowers Gallery for a tour of Prismatic Minds led by the exhibition’s curators Jennifer Gilbert (Director of the Jennifer Lauren Gallery) and actor, writer, and co-presenter of art podcast Talk Art Russell Tovey.
Bringing together six mainly self-taught international artists, each with intensely personal and imaginative styles, the exhibition presents a new discussion on the act of repetition and the desire to surround oneself with others, real or imagined. Original, raw and energetic, the works on view introduce a carnival of contemporary characters through repeated motifs that have reappeared in the artists' work over many years. The exhibition questions the boundaries or limits of the repeated figure, exploring the deep-rooted personal compulsion to build a cast of characters through ideas of solidarity, family and companionship. Often theatrical or performative, and created without expectations from others, the paintings, drawings and sculptures of Prismatic Minds demonstrate practices of masterful storytelling and image-making.
Exhibiting artists include Misleidys Francisca Castillo Pedroso, Edward Dutkiewicz, Rachel Heller, Keisuke Ishino, Susan Te Kahurangi King and Makoto Okawa.
