introduction

Ilia Petrovic 'Make A Wish'

"This is my first show in the UK for two years and I am proud to be doing it at the Hay Hill Gallery in London.

This collection of paintings has been inspired by fleeting peripheral glimpses that occur unexpectedly anytime, anywhere." - Ilia Petrovic

Sveta Yavorsky 'I Tempi'

New exhibition by Sveta Yavorsky, "I Tempi", presents monochromous calligraphic floral patterns. Subtle variation in flow and density of entangled elements produce distinct "tempo" in each painting. The elements themselves are abstract black ink particles, like individual notes, if looked up closely, but observed from distance they chisel floral forms from whiteness of the canvas like distant chimes carve chords from silence.

introduction

Robert Bissell 'The Animal Narrative'

At first glance, Robert Bissell’s art suggests the struggles and triumphs of animals through a narrative painting style reminiscent of illustrative children’s books. But within Bissell’s work lies a more profound message. Familiar animals from our collective childhood, including bears and rabbits, are purposefully set in magical yet realistic landscapes to disarm viewers and draw them in. Once inside Bissell’s art, viewers discover that the quizzical, contemplative, menacing, or exultant animals actually represent us.

Bissell, now living and working in San Francisco, grew up on a farm in the English countryside outside the small village of West Quantoxhead in Somerset, England.

introduction

Zoe Benbow 'A Different View'

Zoe Benbow’s paintings aim to communicate a sense of awe and enjoyment in landscape and reference the European genre as a means of questioning our cultural construct of wilderness and our relationship to the natural world. The images are developed from drawings made ‘in the field’ yet by an intense engagement with the processes of painting and studio practice, the resulting canvases become as much a meditation on a geology of association and memory as of actual place.

Graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1989 Zoe Benbow has chosen to centre her career in studio practice. Based in London, Benbow has undertaken several international residencies and eighteen solo shows alongside numerous group exhibitions. Work is represented in many corporate and public collections including Queen Mary University of London, The British Council and Manchester City Art Gallery. In 2013 Benbow collaborated with the poet Deryn Rees Jones in the touring exhibition Where we begin to Look- Landscape and Poetry which was presented at The Poetry Society London, The Glass Tank at Oxford Brookes University and other venues.

Patrick Altes ‘Frayed Ideologies’

Patrick Altes was born in North Africa from a Franco/Spanish family, he has lived for extensive periods in South America, South Africa, and now the UK.

He is an abstract painter using elements of figuration but he also works on installations and have an affinity for drawing, which has led him to develop work exploring a digital and drawing interface.

His work focuses on the alchemy between consciousness and the unconscious, exploring a personal perception of mythic and archetypal processes that influence a sense of identity, belonging and displacement. He also is very interested the eroding yet evolving relationship between the contemporary world and our deeper humanity.

introduction

Afshin Naghouni 'Satire'

Iranian born British artist Afshin Naghouni is a name to be reckoned with in the art world. Ash, as he is better known, started painting as a child, winning a number of regional and national competitions between the ages of nine and twelve. He doesn’t follow any particular style, but allows his paint brush to lead him into a world that has us questioning what we see. Out of Focus is a documentary by Shahriar Siami about the artist which was recently awarded San Francisco Film Festival’s Award of Merit. The film tells the story of how Ash fell down the seventh floor of a building during an escape from an Iranian police attack on a birthday party. He injured his spinal cord severely and ended up in wheelchair.

'Afshin (Ash) Naghouni works big in a larger-than-life way, zooming-in close-up to produce a super-sized canvas in a neo-figurative style that captures the appeal of intimate moments in a woman's life.

Naghouni teases you in his canvas 'dolly-shot' whilst, simultaneously, considers the controversialists view of whether it is that Muslim women are oppressed and exploited while western women are liberated, or vice versa?' - Estelle Lovatt, Art of England, December 2011

Peter Blum 'At Eye Level'

'My new solo exhibition at the Hay Hill Gallery is entitled "At Eye Level", as this title is a precise expression of what I perceive and attempt to illustrate through my painting: my models are not smarter, better or taller than the people observing them, and they have not been treated with kid gloves, as in the case with the majority of images that we deal with today, regardless of medium.

My pictures are realistic in the radical sense of the word, without the models being exposed in the process. Quite the opposite: they confidently allow themselves to be observed. In other words, they are at eye level with the people who are looking at them.

With this attitude they furnish a topic for debate, consequently involving themselves in the social discourse regarding artificial and natural beauty and the construction of an image. A highly-topical subject and a key question that concerns the self-conception of all of us. My pictures contribute to the clarification of this issue, making them very much of their time.' - Peter Henryk Blum

introduction

Kilmany-Jo Liversage 'Ordamental515'

"Ordamental515 is the deconstruction and subsequent reconstruction of portraiture borrowing elements from urban culture and social media.

I use the constructed urban facades as the canvas to my portraits. These characters are often the faces of people I know or faces from social media.

In doing so, portraits begin to exist at the intersection between urban and fine art where aspects of the visual contemporary landscape are appropriated and re-imagined with traditional techniques of portraiture. “ - Kilmany-Jo Liversage, April 2015.

Roxana Halls 'Unknown Women'

The quiet mystery of a head which will never turn, intimate yet remote, the face forever unseen, is a subject I have found myself drawn to investigate repeatedly.

My figures may seem frozen in a place of stasis and reflection, in the eye of the storm, attempting to reconfigure themselves & perhaps on the cusp of transformation, but they are always on the verge of some private evolution” - Roxana Halls

In Unknown Women, Roxana Halls' third solo exhibition for Hay Hill Gallery, the identities of the artist's subjects, as the title suggests, forever elude us.

Ala Bashir 'Memories Of Chairs'

Ala Bashir is represented in many national museums worldwide, and won national and international prizes. He is a painter, surgeon and writer. According to Professor Douglas Tallack, former Pro-Vice-Chancellor (International) and Head of the College of Arts, Humanities and Law at the University of Leicester, Ala Bashir is, in my view and many others, Iraqs greatest living artist. That he also has an international reputation as a surgeon is astonishing; as is the fact that he has lived through the upheaval and sheer danger of Iraqs history, and produced some memorable art.

The show 'Memories Of Chairs' is an attempt to reflect on:
what makes a child to fight to sit on a particular chair;
why most people prefer to sit on the same chair at home;
what makes chairs of Napoleon, Isaac Newton, Henry The VIII look different than a chair in a waiting room;
whether chair becomes metaphor for identity, home, authority, and security.

Ali Jabbar 'The Blind Mask'

First studying in Baghdad, then at the KKA Design School Copenhagen, Ali Jabbar - the painter and the sculptor - has developed a particular style that will question the viewer’s perception of reality.
Based on the artist’s understanding of the world we live in, the paintings are a combination of fiction and facts that contradict each other. Jabbar’s characters never reveal their secrets, but hide underneath masks of seduction and deep contemplation. The empty, hollow eyes of these masks remind us of Ancient Mesopotamian sculptures, while the accessories that dress the broken bodies are controversially very contemporary.

Hani Mazhar 'Countless Shades'

Originally from Baghdad but leaving and working in London since 1991, Hani Mazhar has produced artworks that are both timeless and iconic.
Symbolic are the birds, flowers and crowns that decorate the paintings. These characters seem to possess wisdom that mere mortals could not understand. That is the reason we are so attracted to Mazhar’s paintings, trying to grasp some knowledge hidden their metaphors and riddles.
His paintings are a mix of the heavenly, fantasy, and reality, countless shades of human nature.

Sergey Sologub: 'Island'

Sergey Sologub's new exhibition at Hay Hill Gallery promises to be a surreal fusion of ordinary landscapes, seen through a filter of science fiction. At first glance, these compositions appear meticulous with their technical skill and careful symmetry; on closer inspection, paradoxical angles emerge to disorient and unsettle the viewer. With the flawless technique of an old master and a child’s uninhibited imagination Island hints at the magical realism of those would-be-worlds.

Giuseppe Linardi: 'DECODED#LNDN'

Giuseppe Linardi’s Decoded exhibition for Hay Hill Gallery is a not-to-be-missed visual experience. The bright canvases are a matrix of optical sensations as disconcerting as magic-eye pictures or interactive screens; reminiscent of bit-map zeros and ones, the broad dots and dashes merge to unveil their hidden subjects. The works could be seen as a kaleidoscopic rendering of the data we leave in our wake - an endless obsession with documenting our existence.
