Visions from the ShorelineMay 30 - Jun 28, 2019 Visions from the Shoreline is an open-air exhibition of monumental-scale photographic works by Alexander James Hamilton. Set amidst stunning roof gardens looking across the iconic skyline of London's Canary Wharf, this site-specific art installation serves as a timely and poetic testament to the vitality of our natural world, and it's significance in our cultural life.
The works of art on display are inspired by the Hamilton's experience looking out to sea. While he sees beauty and rapture by the shore, he sees where pollution intrudes and a destructive force in its roar. Visions from the Shoreline is an ode to our disappearing world and a catalyst for a bold artistic intervention that addresses the impact of industrialisation and pollution to our oceanic environment.
NocturneMay 8 - 31, 2019 Dellasposa Gallery presents the exhibition Nocturne, an ensemble of artworks about the ethereal nature of life in the hours of darkness - explored through the movement of the contemporary artists Nicholas Hughes, Dean and James, and Guy Haddon Grant.
The exhibition offers a new conceptual perspective on the Nocturne. The representation of light is a defining feature in the exhibition - not only are the works of art concerned with the transformative quality of the night, they traverse the elements of visual notations and movement, treated akin to musical composition.
In these pieces, the artists convey a sense of beauty and tranquillity with nature is a score realised through the process of observation and act of creation. The qualities of these moments - the sense of grace, momentary movement and repose - and their artistic rumination often turn to a more complex impression. Some of the pieces bring to light hidden depths of one's consciousness; for what is done in the dark, must come to light. For all the artists, the visual sensations of art are in symbiosis with the classical renditions of a nocturne - rhythm, harmony, accent, graphic chromatic counterpoints, and cadence - are employed here for expressive purpose.
