Spring kicks off on the 20th of March, so to ease you through this final Winter push, we’ve got a months worth of art exhibitions lined up.

Kostas Sklavenitis : Kneaded

Bosse and Baum
14th February - 28th March 2020

Bosse & Baum is pleased to present Kneaded, an exhibition of new paintings and wall murals by the Greek artist Kostas Sklavenitis. This is the artist’s first exhibition with Bosse & Baum, and in London. In this body of work Sklavenitis investigates the social significance and symbolism of bread. The production, sale, and sharing of bread forms a key narrative and symbolic element, which results in highly emotive works that evoke comparisons with both prehistoric cave drawings and modernist abstraction, giving the paintings a sense of historicity and timelessness. The worlds that the artist creates are bright, filled with light and movement, with figures overlapping and conjoining, as their lives are impacted by the various processes key to the production of this essential component within worldwide cultures and societies.

Sklavenitis stimulates all five senses, providing a visual feast of colour and line, combining the importance of taste and smell, as well as conveying a deep sense of texture emphasised by the inclusion of sand and jesmonite in the wall murals. He uses frescos, paintings on walls and canvas, to create a Gesamtkunstwerk, a “total work of art”. The exhibition space, like the paintings, has no specific focal point, drawing the eye in equal measure across the breadth and depths of the paintings and walls. The flowing compositions and striking colours create an immersive environment and are an important continuation of his style of work to-date.

F O R M presents an expanded view of photography, bringing together works that cross discipline and merge photography with painting, moving image and sculpture.
