The Eagle Gallery is delighted to present Then Me – a collaboration with the John Marchant Gallery, in the first of an occasional series of guest-curated exhibitions together.
Chromatography (χρωματογραφία or Colour Writing) is the extraction of compound elements from a mixture by means of separation. Then Me uses a similar technique to expose base elements, delving into our pleasure in mark-making and colour, by grouping works from a multiplicity of places and practices. Like a visual manifestation of Morton Feldman’s sound work, bright little explosions of colour abound in Then Me.
Juxtaposing elements of the ‘found’ with the more constructed object, or contrasting the apparently random mark with the formality of the abstract grid, Marchant’s exhibition celebrates a rich diversity of approach, and draws from the work of international artists represented by his gallery.
The Eagle Gallery has curated a display of artists’ books, prints and a painting in the ground floor lobby of 201 Bishopsgate at Broadgate to commemorate the 2016 anniversary of Literary Great including Shakespeare, Charlotte Bronte, Beatrix Potter and Roald Dahl.
Artists featured include Basil Beattie, Graham Bignell, Tracey Bush, Julia Farrer, Bruce McLean, Tracey Rowledge and Carolyn Thompson.
