'I dreamed of this place, an Abyss, dark and protective. It surrounds me, womb-like, yet also stifling. These strange forms grow into and out of the Abyss; they are both recognisable and bizarre' explains artist Soojin Kang. 'It’s as though they were incubated here in the darkness of my studio, ready to bloom into the gallery. They’re like an obscure little family'.

Discover 'ABYSS' Soojin Kang's new solo exhibition presented by Ben Hunter. The exhibition is now online and also on view in the London gallery from 2 December through to 29 January.

Home to the New Art Centre since 1994, Roche Court is an art gallery and sculpture park located within a 19th century house in parkland only a few miles away from the iconic Stonehenge landmark.

The New Art Centre exhibits works by celebrated modern British sculptors including Barbara Hepworth, Anthony Caro and Kenneth Armitage as well as a rota of contemporary exhibitions with artists including Antony Gormley, Michael Craig-Martin, Richard Long and David Nash.

This Autumn, the New Art Centre presents the new exhibition of porcelain and stone works created by Edmund de Waal during lockdown. 'Tacet', Latin for ‘it is silent', presents works which are a reflection and response to the months spent in the studio, often in solitude.

The exhibition presents ceramic works, which are at the centre of the artist's practice but also introduces two kinds of English stone - the translucent Nottingham Alabaster as well as the golden Horton stone from Nottinghamshire, the latter explored by the De Waal for the very first time. The artist invites visitors to sit, pause, touch and explore the materiality of the exhibition set within the breathtaking country.

Visit ‘Tacet’ at the New Art Centre until 9th January 2021. Open by appointment, please email [email protected] or call 01980 862244 in advance to arrange your visit.

David Gill Gallery presents TRUTHLIESFEARLOVE an online exhibition of Barnaby Barford Artist latest body of work. Encompassing 10 unique works on paper, TRUTHLIESFEARLOVE is the outcome of the artist’s further exploration of his word drawings, Barford’s signature technique consists of repeating the same words over and over, allowing his practise to develop both on a formal and conceptual level.

These works on paper highlight the prevalence of contemporary debates on the evolving notion of concepts such as “truth” and “lie” in an era characterised by technology and connectivity. Reflecting on recent historical and political events, Barford’s latest works are testimony to a changing world in which everything is susceptible to being questioned, an oscillation between the power of love and the limits of fear.

Opening today at Jonathan Cooper is Fiona Strickland's solo exhibition 'Tulipa'.

Fiona has long been drawn to tulips, finding their colour, shape, and form visually engaging, and the history of their depiction in art intellectually fascinating.

The small scale of her works, their jewel-like application of paint, and the use of vellum as a support connects them with the tradition of portrait miniatures, permeating them with a sense of intimacy and preciousness that is wholly appropriate for the subject: few flowers could compete with the tulip in the richness of symbolic meaning with which it has been imbued in art history, and few commodities could rival the financial frenzy of seventeenth-century ‘Tulip Mania’, and the enormous value once ascribed to its bulbs.

Visit the exhibition online on http://ow.ly/MNUj50BfHR3 or in the London gallery by appointment.

Duke Fulco di Verdura began designing jewelry in 1920s Paris with #CocoChanel, for whom he created his signature Maltese Cross Cuffs. After venturing to America and opening on Fifth Avenue in 1939, Verdura quickly gained a following among New York’s best dressed, including style icons like #DianaVreeland and #BabePaley, and Hollywood screen legends such as #GretaGarbo and #MarleneDietrich. Today Verdura continues to create jewels from the Duke’s archive of nearly ten thousand designs and is widely recognized among collectors and jewelry cognoscenti for its bold but understated “chic.”
_
In the pantheon of master jewelers from the twentieth century, Suzanne Belperron (1900-1983) stands apart as the only woman. After beginning her career with Boivin in 1919, she pioneered a new aesthetic in jewelry: sensual, tactile and arrestingly modern. With influential clients such as #ElsaSchiaparelli, the Duchess of Windsor and #DianaVreeland, Belperron is widely recognized as one of the most influential designers of the 20th century. Asked why she never signed her jewelry, she replied “My style is my signature.” In 2015, Belperron LLC opened its first flagship salon in over forty years in New York, featuring vintage Belperron jewels and new pieces created from her archive of over 9,200 designs.

Bowman Sculpture is the world’s leading gallery for sculpture by Auguste Rodin, earning a worldwide reputation for consistently sourcing works of the highest quality.

Auguste Rodin’s Le Penseur (The Thinker) is one of the most iconic sculptures in art history. The timeless work has become internationally recognisable as a symbol for the depths of humanity’s intelligence and philosophical genius. This, however, was not always the artist’s intention.

Rodin initially conceived the sculpture as an integral piece for the tympanum of his monumental work, La Porte de l’Enfer (The Gates of Hell). Inspired by Dante’s The Divine Comedy, Rodin originally called the sculpture, Le Poète (The Poet), and positioned it as an omniscient figure presiding over the tumultuous scenes of judgment and damnation below. Both spectator and participant in Dante’s phantasm of Hell, the sculpture immediately became a powerful and transcendent figure for critics, collectors, and enthusiasts alike.

Auguste Rodin
'Le Penseur (The Thinker), Petit Modèle'
Conceived in 1881-1882; this example cast by Alexis Rudier between 1920-1930.
