SAVE THE DATE | ANDREW LEVENTIS – SOLO EXHIBITION | CHAMPAGNE SUN 11 AUGUST 3-6

We are delighted to announce the first UK solo show of the hugely talented American painter Andrew Leventis. His precise and delicate small oil paintings will occupy gallery 1 whilst gallery 2 will feature a selection of our current gallery roster – including new works from new artists.
Leventis works on the blurred boundary between the genres of still life and portraiture. At certain points one becomes the other, as objects become symbolic portraits and people become illustrated possessions. This kind of ‘still-life portraiture’ seems contradictory in that it equates people with objects, yet it also gives value to the individual.
Rendering still lives from snaps of period dramas played out on film and television Leventis is concerned with the tension that is created between the painted and technological image. Looking through the filter of the digital screen he reflects how contemporary TV borrows configurations from painting, whilst Leventis himself borrows back from the cinematic designs of contemporary television.
The ‘Objectify’ Contemporary Sculpture exhibition continues in the gardens of High House and will be open during the Champagne View.
Champagne View:  Sunday 14 July 2013 / 3 – 6 pm. RSVP. All welcome.
