FACADES

John Martin Gallery, Albemarle Street, London

18th September - 5th October

Designs for pageantry, celebration and pleasure form the inspiration for Ed Kluz’s exhibition, Facades. From the Arches of Triumph constructed for the Coronation of James I in 1604, to the Ranelagh Rotunda and Inigo Jones’s unexecuted plans for a new Whitehall Palace, each occupies a significant place in London’s cultural history despite being either short-lived or existing only as engravings and drawings. Elaborate architectural schemes giving an effect of magnificence and opulence were often no more than fragile, temporary facades. In recreating these lost splendours, Ed Kluz’s paintings set out to capture the sense of celebration for which they were designed, pleasures as fleeting and impermanent as their architecture.

The Miniaturists

The Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh

30th October - 23rd December

The Scottish Gallery presents The Miniaturists - an intriguing collection of beautifully made works of art on a small scale. The title of the exhibition is inspired by the fictional novel of the same name, which centred around the 17th century doll’s house made famous by Petronella Oortman of Amsterdam. There is something inherently covetable about small, beautifully made, transportable objects that can be treasured forever. The Miniaturists features an international selection of artists who have made unique works in various materials.

Lotte Inch Gallery, York

3rd August - 1st September

This August, Lotte Inch Gallery is thrilled to welcome back to the city, renowned Yorkshire artist Ed Kluz alongside fellow illustrator Christopher Moss, in their new show, Look at York.  The inspiration for this exhibition comes from a shared fascination with Yorkshire’s most famous historic city. It’s rich and dynamic history is recorded in an extraordinary variety of buildings. The exhibition is a collection of works which show York and its built heritage in a new light through the reinterpretation and rendering of familiar landmarks through the eyes of two Yorkshire artists.

The exhibition will comprise of around forty framed works including original egg tempera paintings by Christopher Moss as well as scraper boards, paper collages and prints by Ed Kluz all inspired by the buildings of York. There will also be unframed works available for sale by both artists.

Christopher and Ed have known each other since 1996. Christopher taught Ed A-level art at Richmond School (Yorkshire). He was an important figure in the development of Ed’s ideas and approach to image making. Both artists have continued a strong friendship ever since.

Hardwick Old and New Halls and Owlcotes followed, but only Hardwick New Hall, on which Bess embarked as a seventy-year-old widow in 1590, survives. What part Bess played in the building process, the importance of her craftsmen, the contribution of Robert Smythson, who designed Hardwick New Hall and Owlcotes, and the legacy of her houses, will all be discussed.

Placemakers

The Scottish Gallery, Dundas Street, Edinburgh 

3rd - 27th October

Two artists inspired by the same intrigue in architecture exhibit together at the Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh.   They have selected some of Scotland’s most quirky or abandoned buildings as a starting point and worked their own interpretations in print and collage or silver and gold.  

 

With fine quality of craftsmanship combined with detailed observation of architecture from Ancient Rome to contemporary buildings, Vicki makes jewellery and silverware that connect a place of significance to the wearer or dining table.  Techniques of trompe l’oeil or manipulation of proportion achieve her desired effect.  Recently she made a collection for her exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum inspired by the iconic landmarks of Oxford. She has exhibited worldwide with items in the V&A, Royal Scottish Museum, L.A Contemporary Art Museum, Houston University Collection and many other public and private collections.

 

Ed will exhibit around 30 new original scraper boards, collages and paintings alongside Vicki's meticulous works in precious metals.

Please join us for drinks in the gallery on the opening day, Saturday 16th April. All work will be available to buy either in the gallery or online from 10.00am. You will be able to see a preview of the prints on our website in the week running up to the exhibition.
