FOLD Gallery | London

Originally run as a crossover between a commercial gallery and a project space, FOLD Gallery | London specialised in producing group shows. This gave the opportunity for UK based and international artists, from emerging to mid-career practices, to be brought together within context. The principle goal behind the curated group exhibitions was to expand the reach of the gallery by constantly bringing in new audiences.

Re-located in Clerkenwell, FOLD Gallery continues to push its reach to new audiences. The gallery is now a commercial venture, where the focus still remains on strongly themed group shows, but the programme is now punctuated and enhanced with significant solo presentations. FOLD strives to present all of the artists work within context, to give the viewer the best opportunity to gain understanding of the intentions of the artist, whilst viewing the work displayed to the highest possible standards.

As Wide As A Door Is Open: Material Images

Dominic Beattie, John Bunker, Stephen Buckley, EC, Christopher McSherry

Private View | Friday 5th September, 6 - 9 pm
Exhibition | Saturday 6th September - Saturday 11th October


At its richest abstract art involves the simultaneous discovery and creation of new visual worlds, territories that provoke an obscure recognition but ultimately remain unknowable, enigmatic. Picking up on hints hidden in the accumulated conventions of the strange class of objects we call pictures, the early abstract artists began this exploration. The five artists in As Wide As A Door Is Open extend it, each developing personal formal languages which go beyond form.

Abstract art needs its own newly found reality, or at least a vivid sense of unreality. Dominic Beattie, Stephen Buckley, John Bunker, EC and Christopher McSherry do not share a single approach to achieving this, beyond a desire to anchor their illusions of space and structure as tangible physical presences.

John Bunker and EC employ collage with the excitement of gestural abstraction. EC’s have the urgency and fragility of a intens... [ Read all ]

SIMON CALLERY | LAWRENCE CARROLL | ANGELA DE LA CRUZ | ONYA McCAUSLAND

This exhibition of paintings considers material as a cue for perceiving the world in an age of extreme image saturation. The emphasis on material over image is a counterpoint to the tyranny of the screen that realigns the visceral properties of matter as new potent narrative ‘actants’ for the 21st century.

The term ‘materiality’ has been banded around a lot recently, infiltrating contemporary discourse perhaps in recognition and acknowledgement of an increasingly virtual experience of the world, one in which the act of looking has itself been hijacked by the proliferation of highly co-modified imagery. In this scenario the once primary physical world becomes the shadow, other, and its simulacra experienced through the screen-world takes its place in a reversal of conventional oppositions of material-immaterial, physical-metaphysical, looking/non-looking, seeing/non-seeing.

We take our cue from images, in the beginning on cave walls, holy walls, canvas and screen but, saturation of image depotentialises image – over exposure lea... [ Read all ]
