Laura Garrow

I was introduced to Laura Garrow by a friend, and since looking through her website, i’ve wanted to see them in the flesh, because they are delicate, atmospheric and beautiful works.

The works themselves are created by using pins to prick holes in the work. These are then mounted on light boxes, which emphasise the compositions and allowing light to escape. As Laura puts it, ” creating an ambient glow.”

See below for website details and my personal favourites, as well as some paintings from Michael Raedecker, who I was reminded of when I first saw Laura Garrow’s work.

Outline Editions

I found Outline Editions by accident on my lunch break, on Berwick Street. It’s a great little gallery, full of affordable and very cool graphic design and Art. Most are limited editions and the prices are very reasonable, from around £30 to £200, so not only will they look great on your wall, they’re affordable too.

If you’re near Berwick Street, make a point to go in and chat to the staff (they even let Ted the hound in) and have a look at the latest exhibits

Here’s a link to their website, and some pics of ones I particularly like.

Nicholas Hughes

Nicholas Hughes creates intensely atmospheric photography. They feel cinematic, and have a brilliant, haunting quality. He concerns himself with analysing the relationship between man and nature, with these photographs below being some of the highlights for me of his extensive body of work.

Hush

Hush is one of my favourite artists. His mix of classic manga-esque poses (and Geisha photography) with graffiti, calligraphy and gestural doodles make his work pretty darn awesome. I want one.

I know, I say that a lot. but I bet you’ll want one too…

If you do, have a look at the Opus Art website for more details.

Sol Lewitt

Sol Lewitt is one of the pioneers of Conceptual Art, bringing his conceptual and geometric works to the masses after the Second World War. he’s pretty unsung in this country, though his influence is far greater than people realise.

He often worked with teams of people to help him create his massive wall drawings, often giving instructions as to how the works should be carried out, but vague enough to allow these volunteers to influence the outcome.

Sometimes they will include pencil marks filling in whole spaces with cross hatching, or grid patterns across a wall, but they all have a strong architectural quality to them (more so than his paintings) and these are some of my favourites that I could find…

A nice biography of Lewitt on Hollis Taggart website:  http://www.hollistaggart.com/artists/biography/sol_lewitt/
