• REBECCA HOSSACK

    LONDON

     

    This year marks the 33rd anniversary of the opening of the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery. Over the course of three decades the gallery has built an international reputation for innovation, individuality, energy and excellence.

     

    Rebecca Hossack has been a great champion of Non-Western artistic traditions. Hers was the first art gallery in Europe to exhibit Australian aboriginal painting, and it continues to promote such work through its regular Songlines seasons. Rebecca Hossack has also curated important exhibitions of work from the Bushmen of the Kalahari, from Papua New Guinea, and from tribal India. Much of this art would simply not have been seen in the UK but for the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery.

    acrylic and graphite on canvas

    Price: £11,850 (plus any applicable taxes)

     

    ‘Every single woman is different; the way my models pose reflects a part of who they are, expressing their personality. There is no pretence, no trying to act out, they are simply themselves, and that’s great. The way a woman thinks she should look or tries to conform to an ideal of beauty should not hold her back from being who she is.’ - Nikoleta Sekulovic

     

    Nikoleta Sekulovic creates in the tradition of Odalisque portraiture and yet redefines her subject as both parent and muse. In a muted palette and void of props and distractions, the artist’s intent is to highlight the female form stripped of external expectations and in a state of authenticity, as opposed to more traditional expressions of sexuality. The looser lines celebrate the imperfections and irregularities of the human body and recall Egon Schiele’s Vienna and the minimalism of Gustav Klimt’s studies.

     

     

    Nikoleta Sekulovic is an artist and mother, presently living and creating in Madrid. Born in Rome to a German mother and a Serbian father, she has worked in London, Paris and New York, exhibiting across these cities.

    Professor Phil Shaw is a ground-breaking British digital-printmaker, who creates hyper-real images of great formal elegance and conceptual richness. His distinctive ‘bookshelf’ prints interrogate the changing place of the printed word in a digital age, and the transfer of meaning through inter-textuality. Depicting books arranged on shelves, their titles merge and melt, forming unexpected connections and new dynamics. These are images to explore and intrigue; they are clever, funny, unsettling, and beautiful.
     
    Awarded his Doctorate in ink technology, Shaw uses a specialized eight-colour printing process on fine-grade Hahnemuhle paper. He was the former Professor of Printmaking at the University of Middlesex, where he taught from 1980.

    Mersuka Dopazo, Puntos Azules, 2020
    fabrics, handmade paper, pigment and oil on canvas (with vintage frame)
    140 x 145 cm.
    Price: £11,550 (plus any applicable taxes)
     
    Mersuka Dopazo sees her works as a ‘travelogue from unexpected territory’. The Spanish artist creates large-scale naïve-style collages from couture fabric and hand-made, natural papers. These materials are sourced all over the world directly from the craftsman, from locations such as Spain and Italy.
     
    Often densely patterned, the papers and fabrics are juxtaposed with gestural line, pigment and areas of gessoed white canvas; the collages exploring the balance of colour and the relationship between positive and negative space. Unexpected connections form between clashing textures and motifs and between the regularity of pattern and the spontaneity of broken graphite and improvised colour.
     
    Dopazo’s works have been exhibited extensively in the UK, the USA, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong and Europe.
