Penelope Stutterheime: Mapping the Interior Fri 15th Nov, 2019 Free

Price: 

Free


Everard Read is pleased to present South African artist, Penelope Stutterheime's second solo exhibition at the London gallery.

Mapping the Interior captures the essence of Stutterheime’s long-standing preoccupation with depicting inner landscapes. Drawing inspiration from dreams and the unconscious, her layered and textured paintings use impasto and intensely-vibrant colour to create mesmerising abstract works.

Stutterheime responds intuitively to her surroundings and events in her life, seeking to convey a state of mind rather than any particular reality. She describes pouring herself, her emotions and feelings through rather than into a work. The process seems to be deeply cathartic, with the act of repeatedly applying oil paint to the canvas, serving as a meditative process for subconsciously working through emotions. Only once complete does the artist have some clarity and a sense of what the work embodies.

Please contact the gallery for opening times and booking details.

Caryn Scrimgeour: A Word is Not a Sparrow Fri 15th Nov, 2019 Free

Price: 

Free


Everard Read London is pleased to present a solo exhibition of oil paintings by South African artist, Caryn Scrimgeour. This new body of work entitled, A Word is Not a Sparrow, was completed over the past 18 months and several of the works were inspired by the artist’s recent travels in Japan.

Taken from a Russian proverb, the title of the show refers to the indelible permanence of a spoken word. "A word once uttered can never be taken back; instead it floats forever within our memories," notes Scrimgeour.

Scrimgeour's paintings are obsessively immaculate - a manifestation of intense attention to detail and an extraordinary command of her palette. Her table settings intrigue and fascinate by juxtaposing fragile and precious curios with commonplace objects, each exquisitely rendered.

Rich in symbolism, her work is reminiscent of still life paintings from the Dutch Golden Age. Scrimgeour uses ephemeral objects - butterflies, blossoms and fruit - to remind us of our fleeting existence.

Please contact the gallery for opening times and booking details.
