Michael Craig-Martin, Edmund de Waal, Richard Serra & Idris Khan
We are unveiling a new series of Platinum-Palladium prints, London (2015), by Idris Khan that depict five London architectural landmarks. Each print is an amalgam of between 70-100 layers of photographs, dating from the 1930's onwards.
By a complex process of assembling and erasing, Khan has built up a composition that stretches over time, capturing the essence of each iconic structure.
A new series of ten prints by Richard Serra, Reversal I - X (2015), will have their first showing in the UK. Reversals comprises two sheets of handmade paper to which Serra has applied a black Paintstik and silica mixture by hand to build bold, densely layered forms that absorb light, creating a strong sense of gravity, weight and mass.
Alongside the works by Serra we will present seven new works by Edmund de Waal entitled, Letters from Tomis I - VII (2015). The title of these works refers to the city of Tomis, now known as Constanța in modern day Romania, where the Roman poet Ovid was exiled in 8AD by Emperor Augustus.
Each work consists of several small porcelain vessels inserted between two white wooden boxes.
We will also display a selection of metal profiles from Julian Opie's new Nature 1. series. Transferring urban technology to rural subjects, Opie has cut boats, sheep, carp and pebbles from sheet aluminium.
Prior to Michael Craig-Martin's solo exhibition, Transience at the Serpentine, London (25 November - 14 February 2015) we will exhibit a new series of nine embossed letterpress prints entitled, Drawings (2015).
We will be displaying a large woodcut by Christiane Baumgartner from her recent series, Wald bei Colditz (Wood near Colditz) (2014), a black and white depiction of a wooded landscape.
