Nina Murdoch: Collecting Colour

Marlborough Gallery, London

31 October – 24 November 2018

Collecting Colour is the first solo exhibition by British artist Nina Murdoch (b. 1970) in four years. During this time she has simplified her subject matter, concentrating on her technique to allow the paint to assume greater importance. She has produced monumental paintings with a depth and quality that resonate light and atmosphere in dramatic and hypnotic visions. The exhibition brings together 16 new large-scale egg tempera and gesso paintings alongside a group of pastel studies. Together they showcase Murdoch’s representation of architectural spaces from a close-up, more abstracted viewpoint. Nina Murdoch: Collecting Colour runs at Marlborough Fine Art in London from 31 October until 24 November 2018...

Tobias Keene: Aurora | 16 June – 8 July 2018

Presented by Robbi Chong, Amadea West and Flora Fairbairn

For his inaugural show in the UK, Tobias Keene will present Aurora, an exhibition of monumental and miniature paintings. Born in Stratford Upon Avon in 1963, Keene returns to the UK to unveil this exhibition of new paintings, after 25 years living in Los Angeles. The exhibition represents a collection of paintings inspired by his life in LA, by the light, experiences and subjects he has encountered. Aurora is presented by Robbi Chong, Amadea West and Flora Fairbairn.

Keene’s paintings explore themes such as ceremony, beauty and reliquary inspired by his time living abroad, mixed up with memories of his childhood. Colours are vivid and explosive, and with his use of negative space he often creates an exploration of displacement, with long shadows signifying the passage of time...

Public Appeal to find the Lost Watercolours of Eric Ravilious

Eric Ravilious, one of most admired and popular British artists of the 20th century, produced a remarkable number of watercolours in a career cut short by his untimely death in 1942 while serving as an official war artist.

Over 250 of these watercolours are known, but it is believed that around 40 are lying undiscovered or uncatalogued in collections around the world. The Hedingham Press aim to publish the definitive catalogue of Ravilious’s watercolours, and are launching a public appeal to find those ‘lost’ watercolours...
