Clare Kenny at Vitrine

Posted 30/11/2016

Clare Kenny has a solo exhibition at VITRINE gallery in London.

In ‘Enough rope to hang ‘emselves’, Kenny takes a family story about her grandmother, who spent much of her life working in a rope factory in greater Manchester, as the catalyst for an installation of sculptures in the extraordinary Vitrine space in Bermondsey – a must see.

Four of Kenny’s artworks, Beyond the Pale (2013), Envy (2010-13), Looking Back at You (2013), and Pondlife (2013) are included in the Aspen Collection and displayed in the London office.

The exhibition runs until 21 January 2017.

Kamrooz Aram at Green.Art.Gallery

Posted 30/11/2016

Kamrooz Aram whose work features in the New York Aspen collection has a major solo show at renowned Green.Art.Gallery in Dubai.

The exhibition Recollections for a Room, explores the potential for ornament and pattern to transcend the decorative. In these works, he blends isolated details from a Persian carpet with the geometric patterns found in European Modernist architecture. This focus on where East and West can find parallels signals the artist’s perspective of optimism in the face of wider social challenges.

Aram’s exhibition runs until 15 January 2017 – an excuse to visit warmer climes perhaps? His work Celebration Confirmed (2008) is displayed in the Aspen collection in New York.
