JANUARY 11 - FEBRUARY 24
Cavin-Morris Gallery is pleased to announce a double exhibition to coincide with the Outsider Art Fair, which takes place the last weekend of January. We are especially pleased to feature a group of new drawings by gallery artist Chris Hipkiss. The title of the exhibition is taken from one of his startlingly visionary landscapes. Hipkiss has received a wide amount of attention this year and was one of the featured artists in AFAM’s Obsessive Drawing exhibition.
Using only graphite and very selective areas of metallic ink, he describes a world where the essence of the war between spectacular technology and sensual Nature is abstracted into movements of rhythmic graphic detail. Hipkiss manages to imbue his atmospheres with a fascinating sense of portent; what is about to happen next is as important as what we already see. Born in the United Kingdom in 1964, Chris Hipkiss now works and resides in the south-west of France.
The remaining work in this exhibit will be a review of new work by gallery artists, new artists to the gallery and a selection of works by established self-taught masters.
