Rod Barton Gallery presents a group exhibition featuring the works of Gabriele Beveridge, Tomas Downes, and Stuart Elliot. These artists, working disparately in photography, sculpture, and painting, respectively, are brought together in a conversation of fragmentation. The variations between these three artists and their mediums allow the viewer to draw connections freely. Noticeably, however, each artist uses the idea of rupture within his or her own works in order to display a unified whole. The paintings of Stuart Elliot look like imprints of shattered glass, built from starkly bright colors that strike across the otherwise white surfaces of his canvases.Tom Downes presents a similar juxtaposition, positioning fractured concrete beneath tinted glass against solid, neutral rectangles in a series of floor sculptures. Gabriele Beveridge’s photographs are set in installations as well, such as Untitled (mountain), that are deconstructed and rejoined in unique assemblages.
This group show will continue through September 3, 2011 at the Rod Barton Gallery, located on One Paget Street, London EC1V 7PA.
