The Jennifer Lauren Gallery and actor, writer and Talk Art co-presenter Russell Tovey are thrilled to be curating Prismatic Minds at Flowers Gallery in London. The exhibition will look at highly stylized visual languages featuring repeated figures and characters. Bringing together six mainly self-taught international artists, each with intensely personal and imaginative styles, Prismatic Minds presents a new discourse on the act of repetition and the desire to surround oneself with others, real or imagined. Original, raw and energetic, the works on view introduce a carnival of contemporary characters through repeated imagery that has recurred in the artists’ work over many years. Often theatrical or performative, and created without expectations from others, the paintings, drawings and sculptures of Prismatic Minds demonstrate practices of masterful storytelling and image-making.
The six artists are: Misleidys Francisca Castillo Pedroso, Makoto Okawa, Keisuke Ishino, Rachel Heller, Susan Te Kahurangi King and Edward Dutkiewicz. We can’t wait for you to explore these artists’ practices further, and to learn more about them through videos and guided tours.
