NEW EXHIBITION – space for art
June 18 @ 8:00 am - July 14 @ 5:00 pm
The BAKER HOWARD CONTEMPORARY is proud to present a select range of artists who embody the spirit of fresh thinking from the finest talents on our creative roster in this new show which encourages everyone to give space for art.
We move through the world of Tim Kingsmill-Brown’s sublime landscapes, with the almost lyrical execution of his romantic panoramas, where he aims to capture something of the genius loci (spirit of place) in paint, to the captivating and saucy world of Anna Mazzotta, where her compelling figuration combines exquisite draftesmanship, fresh originality and provocative humour; some evoking the lost world of Vaudeville entertainment. Dasha Art is so full of ideas and artistic spirit that this multi-disciplinary artist has won many awards. Dasha is inspired by the rich creative traditions of Belarus through the ethos of its UNOVIS school (described as the Bauhaus of the East), as she synergizes Cubist, Geometric, Suprematist and Ethno-Aesthetic styles to produce her strikingly colourful canvases.
Jim Starr attempts to elevate and transform birds into iconic subjects. He experiments with scale, composition, cropping and a painterly technique to produce powerful and contemporary portraits of birds. Starr is ever aware of man’s impact on the natural environment. Sandor Barics has a singular ability to pass, Hermes like, between the worlds of science and art. His mixed media meditations on the cosmos are entire worlds unto themselves. Rising out of the surface like the mountains of a distant planet, he uses found objects and materials, as he transforms soft materials into permanent artistic presences. Robert Bradford is an artist who knows how to represent variety with integrity. He uses heterogenous materials in a language that is fresh and enigmatic. His beautifully crafted dogs, which will grace 70 Charing Cross Road, are almost post-modern icons with Bradford’s use of diverse materials, which have a knowing wink to ideas of playful kitsch. Toys are chosen carefully for their design, shape and colour, and for their adaptability relative to their form.
