‘Prächtig’ offers an insight into the artists’s work with 96 plates covering his portraits and still life photographs.

The Austrian photographer’s glossy, large-scale photographs evoke the compositions of traditional still life and portrait painting. His subjects are suffused with all of the sensuous opulence of a Caravaggio and decked out in the trappings of modern absurdity. From paperclips and piercings to spaghetti wigs and cardboard flamingoes, his works are both bizarre and beatific.

Sargy Mann: Probably the best blind painter in Peckham

An insight into Sargy Mann’s fascinating career, written by the artist and his son Peter Mann.

The book is based around twenty seven paintings chosen by the artist to represent different periods in his life as a painter. The first is from 1963 and the most recent is from 2007. The text is a 45,000 word piece by the artist. Each chapter takes one of the twenty seven paintings as its starting point, but the text as a whole builds to tell the story of how he has continued to paint about the world as he sees and experiences it, while his sight has deteriorated to the point of total blindness.

Each of the twenty seven paintings has been photographed by Peter Mann where they are hanging today. Throughout the book we are moving back and fourth between the artist at home or at work in his studio  and photographs of his work hanging in different peoples houses around the world, or in one case wrapped up in storage.

Elise Ansel (b. 1961, New York City) translates Old Master paintings into a contemporary pictorial language. She mines art historical imagery for color and narrative structure. Her paintings use the Old Masters as points of departure. They move into abstraction by transforming the representational content, which is obfuscated if not entirely eclipsed, by her focus on color, gesture and the materiality of paint. She interrupts linear, rational readings so that the real subject becomes the substance and surface of oil paint, the range of its applications, and the ways in which it can be used to celebrate life.

Central to Ansel’s project is her practice of translating Old Master paintings into a contemporary pictorial language through a female lens. She uses an idiom of energetic gestural abstraction to mine art historical imagery for colour and narrative structure, abstracting and interrupting the representational content, in order to excavate and transform meanings and messages embedded in the works from which her paintings spring.

Comprised of over fifteen paintings, the exhibition includes responses to masterpieces such as Titian’s Rape of Europa (1560-62). Ansel transforms scenes of violence against women into images of consensual pleasure. ‘Painters of that era used mythological content to explore eroticism,’ Ansel says. ‘My attack is on sexism, not on sex. My intent is to reclaim the erotic energy and discard the violent coercion. In Titian’s painting, the strength of the male aggressor is re-enforced by the agency of the male painter. I reverse the polarity of that power dynamic. The heretofore silent object (of the male gaze) is granted agency and becomes the subject, the author of the narrative, which she has the power to change.’ At face value Ansel’s work is not overtly political or feminist but by applying her contemporary female perspective to centuries-old male works of art, Ansel addresses art history’s hegemonic, and often misogynistic, narrative, as well as the continued gender inequality in our society. Says the artist: ‘I flip the orientation and use abstraction to interrupt a destructive narrative and transform it into a revel of colour, movement and asymmetrical balance, building on what’s already there to create something new.’

A key inspiration for Lock is the written word, in particular the work of the dramatists Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter. As the latter famously said, ‘Underneath what is said, something else is being said,’ and the ideas invoked in that observation – notions of double meanings, loss, discovery and the overlapping of past and present – are key to understanding Lock’s entire oeuvre; in essence, each work is a meditation on the ambiguities of life revealed through abstraction.

Comprised of fifteen medium and large-scale paintings, as well as sculptures and a suite of works on paper, this is the artist’s largest presentation to date and his third with the gallery. The paintings are rendered in Lock’s trademark style. A canvas is prepared with gesso onto which layers of acrylic and household paint are applied and then manipulated – sanded, stained, scorched, sealed and torn – and also treated to the effects of a heat gun. The artist sees each canvas as a battleground, with the materials at war with one another. These collisions are orchestrated to some extent, but there is also a pervading element of chance and unpredictability, with paint colours changing due to unplanned physical and chemical interactions.

Juliette Paull’s most recent body of work explores a continuously unfolding visual connection to the landscape within Baroque painting. The notion of romanticism and the sublime is of particular significance in the 18th century frescoes by Tiepolo. Drawing inspiration from these has opened up a personal dialogue with the historical aesthetic and with the dramatic landscape that the artist inhabits.
