After Eden
From Aug 17, 2016 to Oct 30, 2016

We are back at The Hoxton, Holborn with Louise McNaught’s, After Eden.

After Eden celebrates Louise’s new print collection which was released in 2016. Her stunning creations feature nature, animals and the celestial realm in glorious hues, where animals are God-like and ethereal. Using a 'mixed-media’ approach; painted drawings mixed with unusual supports such as celestial maps, Louise aims to represent the delicate relationship between nature and ourselves. Sounds dreamy! Come check her out at our The Hoxton, Holborn 'till October.

Wild Giants Solo show
From Sep 1, 2016 to Sep 30, 2016

London’s award-winning Curious Duke Gallery is proud to announce the truly epic upcoming solo show of breakthrough artist Samantha Gare from the 1st - 30th September 2016 Wild Giants. Private view will be 1st sept 6-9 exhibition will be open to public until the 31st Sept.

In these times of political and economic turmoil, Gare’s soaring mountainscapes offer a welcome respite: a chance to step out of the smoke, chaos and tribulations of London, into the undiscovered wildernesses at the fringes of the planet.

Influenced largely by her own trips to some of the wildest places on earth, Wild Giants captures the remote, sweeping majesty of the edges of the world: the high places where humankind is nothing more than a spec on the landscape.

This collection sees Gare experimenting with dark paints to conjure up mesmerising, star-filled night skies, and flashes of gold to cast sunlight glinting on snow-blanketed slopes, working from photos and sketches etched at the feet of towering mountains as far flung as Peru, Svalbard and Bolivia frequently seeking out the paths few others have trodden.
The artist explains how one of her favourite wild places – and the original inspiration for her artistic direction – is actually much closer to home: ‘I never thought in a million years I’d end up painting landscapes, but a visit to the Isle of Harris in Scotland changed that. Standing at the feet of those Highland mountains gives you a feeling of insignificance that’s at once terrifying, exciting, awe- inspiring and liberating.
Visitors to Whitecross Street can truly immerse themselves in the tranquillity of these soaring wildernesses, with the Curious Duke Gallery transforming under the eerie splendour of the Northern Lights in a unique light show every Thursday throughout August.
Weary of stressful days and grim headlines? Samantha Gare’s stunning Wild Giants is the antidote.
