About the exhibition
As a total contrast to the mainly monochromatic 'Line' show in the Stable Annex, we made the decision to show exciting new works by a combination of gallery artists and associate artists.
Naomi Van Rampelberg exhibits some of her gorgeous Champagne glasses along with a number of her ever popular vases. Peter Ngugi displays one of his latest works from a new series titled 'A celebration and a protest' and we are thrilled that Anthony Okello has been able to re-visit his 'Masquerade series'. One of the same series, along with its owner Robert Devereux, appeared in April of this year on the cover of the Sotherby's magazine. Another 'Masquerade' also had the distinction of gaining the highest price at a Bonham's auction of Kenyan art some years ago.
Collin Sekajugo is one of the few artists from the region who has work in the collection of the Smithsonian in Washington DC. Notable for his fascination with materials and having made a name for himself stitching together pieces of re-cycled plastic, Sekajugo has moved on to experiment with the more traditional Bark cloth from his current home of Uganda.
Meanwhile, James Mbuthia exhibits one of the stars from his recent show; 'Family', an iconic work of great joy. Olivia Pendergast shows one of her popular landscapes, with a slight twist of pink and teal, away from her usual palette and Peter Elungat exhibits a set of unusually pale paintings 'inspired by the light of the Stable Annex'. Finally, Harrison Mburu displays one of his re-cycled metal Lion series with the new addition of strong pops of yellow and red paint.
