Christopher Le Brun
September 14, 2018 - January 12, 2019
Southampton City Art Gallery, Southampton, UK

Christopher Le Brun’s work is characterised by directness of touch and luminosity of colour, his interest in light and space perhaps the influence of growing up on the south coast. “Since the 1970s he has been producing paintings that defy categorisation but which are …possessed of an energy and drama at odds with the irony and theoretical baggage common to most British contemporary art.” He has exhibited extensively around the world, and in 2011 became the 26th President of the Royal Academy. This exhibition comprises new work, including an installation from his Doubles series, which explores the idea of composition by juxtaposing independent paintings to achieve a greater complexity of expression.

Kaleidoscope: Colour and Sequence in 1960s British Art
June 2017 - June 2018
Longside Gallery, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, UK; Nottingham Lakeside Arts, University of Nottingham, UK; Mead Gallery, Warwick Arts Centre, University of Warwick, UK; Walker Art Gallery, National Museums Liverpool, UK

British art of the 1960s is noted for its bold, artificial colour, alluring surfaces and capricious shapes and forms, yet these exuberant qualities are often underpinned by a strong sense of order, founded on repetition, sequence and symmetry. Bringing together outstanding examples of painting and sculpture from the Arts Council Collection and other major UK collections, Kaleidoscope examines 1960s visual art through a fresh and surprising lens, bringing into view the relationship between colour and form, rationality and irrationality, order and waywardness.

Ed Moses, Pioneer of West Coast art, Dies at 91
ED MOSES (1926-2018)
 
albertz benda is deeply saddened to announce that legendary Los Angeles artist and cultural icon Ed Moses has died at 91. Moses passed away peacefully of natural causes at his Venice, California home and studio on Wednesday, January 17th, 2018.
 
In a career that spanned seven decades, Moses received national and international recognition for his practice known for its restless intensity and ever-evolving style. Considered one of Los Angeles’s most innovative painters and a central figure in the city’s art scene, Moses often referred to himself as a “mutator”, driven less by the desire for self-expression than by an insatiable curiosity to explore and discover.
