Ann Christopher RAAll the Cages Have Open Doors 2 Nov 2016 - 14 Jan 2017 To celebrate the publication of Ann Christopher's recent monograph, and solo exhibition at the Royal Academy, Pangolin London is proud to present a selection of sculptures and works on paper spanning all four decades of her oeuvre. New Sculptures and series of drawings inspired by the West Coast of Ireland will bring the exhibition up to the present.
"My work is very much a visual diary of my physical and emotional life, an expression of some of the visual experiences stored in my subconscious. Unlike a computer I cannot search and find - the images emerge seemingly at random, it is only once these visual experiences appear in the works that the origins can sometimes be retraced"
Ralph Brown RAAnd the Figure in the Fifties and Sixties 14 Sep - 22 Oct 2016 Deeply influenced by his time studying in Paris in the early 1950's Ralph Brown & The Figure in the Fifties and Sixties casts a new light on Brown's powerful approach to the figure, re-examining it within the context of Modern British and European figurative sculpture including works by Marino Marini, Germaine Richier and Henry Moore.
Working in the studio of Ossip Zadkine, Brown became fully immersed in Paris' thriving sculpture scene, meeting many artists including Alberto Giacometti who was installing his first show at Galerie Maeght. The seminal moment during this period was seeing Germaine Richier’s L’Orage (Storm Man), 1947-8 which Brown documents in his notebooks from the time and in later written recollections saying: “At Musee D’Art Modernes I saw Richier’s ‘L’Orage’ which quite bowled me over, astounded me”. Later Brown met Richier in person and wished that he had worked for her rather than for Zadkine. Ralph Brown’s experience in Paris was profoundly important, influencing his entire career and his approach to the figure.
Sculpture in the Garden13 May - 9 Jul 2016 Pangolin London is delighted to present an ambitious exhibition that brings the ‘outdoors in’. Transforming its sleek, architectural gallery space into three parts: a woodland, formal and walled garden complete with trees and water sculpture, the exhibition explores how sculpture has been synonymous with the landscape since ancient times. 'Sculpture in the Garden’ is the second exhibition in the series created by Pangolin London, which started with ‘Sculpture in the Home’ in 2014 which celebrated the touring exhibitions curated by the Arts Council England in the 1940s and ‘50s. These exhibitions offer an opportunity to view sculpture in a fresh and different way and encourage audiences to engage with sculpture beyond the traditional gallery or museum setting.
For Sculpture in the Garden Pangolin London have collaborated with local charity Global Generation who run the nearby Skip Garden & Café in King’s Cross and focus on using gardening to build communities. Intended to inspire the viewer to consider sculpture as a valid addition to any outdoor space - whether it be the smallest urban roof terrace or largest country garden - this exhibition is the first of its kind. The show ranges from established sculptors such as Lynn Chadwick, Ann Christopher, William Tucker and Peter Randall-Page to emerging sculptors, all working on a variety of scales and budgets.
Artist include: Anthony Abrahams, Jon Buck, Bruce Beasley, Geoffrey Clarke, Ann Christopher RA, Lynn Chadwick, Michael Cooper, Terence Coventry, Bryan Kneale RA, Jeff Lowe, Charlotte Mayer, Breon O’Casey, William Pye, Merete Rasmussen, Peter Randall-Page RA, Almuth Tebbenhoff and William Tucker.
