2018 is the year of the dog; celebrate with our canine related prints by Quentin Blake, Bill Jacklin and Ken Kiff.

Marlborough Fine Art is pleased to present its third solo exhibition with Jason Brooks. It is the artist’s largest show to date and the first time Marlborough has displayed one artist across both floors of its exhibition spaces. Brooks is part of a generation of artists who emerged in London in the nineties to great international acclaim and for over 20 years has made works that explore the ways in which painting has the power to transform the way we see the everyday

In this exhibition, Brooks looks at how the language of painting can take one art object and, via a journey of exploration, turn it into another. The exhibition shows the transformation of three different sources of art: hobbyist paintings collected by the artist from junk shops; 18th century romantic paintings bought at auctions; and composited photo images taken by Brooks of fellow image makers from within his circle of friends.

 

Marlborough Graphics selection of screenprints by Bridget Riley express a joyful quality encompassing an energetic appearance through bold colours and dynamic compositions.

Bridget Riley’s interest in the medium of print is related to her work as a painter, rather than in its traditional vehicle for reproduction. The printing process seems to easily compel for Riley, the images she was visualising: producing crisp edges and absolute flatness. The inks naturally provide the ideal luminosity and sustained subtle gradations that is often required.

A selection of newly acquired prints by Marlborough Graphics. Featured artists include Louise Bourgeois, Lucian Freud, Victor Pasmore and Kiki Smith.

Marlborough Fine Art is pleased to present Thunderstruck, a new series of paintings by Pamela Golden inspired by both real and imagined images of Iraq from the past and present.

In this series, Golden explores our relationships to imagery and visual culture considering how associations adapt over time; exposing anxieties around images of conflict. Her paintings question how we assign value to an image and the reimagination of her source materials- film stills, photographs – allow Golden to manipulate the viewer’s experience, revealing new narratives through her works.

Ken Kiff’s woodcuts highlight the interplay between the grain of the wood, the cut and the applied colour. The effect of this printing process produced richly textured imagery from Kiff’s recurring motifs drawn from the elemental world. The selected prints were featured in the exhibition ‘Ken Kiff: Etchings, lithographs, and woodcuts, 1984-1999’ at Marlborough Fine Art from 12 December 2001 – 25 January 2002.

Marlborough Fine Art is pleased to present an online – only exhibition of paintings by R.B Kitaj, Victor Pasmore and Joe Tilson, all of whom currently feature in the exhibition ‘Two Decades: British Printmaking in the 1960s and 1970s’ on display at Marlborough London.

The works have been selected to be viewed in relation to the respective artists print output, highlighting common conceptual and formal concerns that exist in both mediums for each of the artists. The experimentation and innovation that was readily explored in print, also became a vital part of each artist’s primary artistic output.

Marlborough Fine Art is pleased to present ‘Two Decades: British Printmaking in the 1960s and 1970s’. An exhibition featuring graphic works of the 1960s and 1970s from prominent British artists and printmakers.
