Summer Exhibition 2017

3 August 2017 - 31 August 2017

The 2017 edition of Marlborough Fine Art’s summer exhibition brings together a selection of works by gallery artists and graphic works by non-represented artists Polly Apfelbaum and Beatriz Milhazes.

Features include Pamela Golden’s new series of paintings made with sumi ink on sandpaper as well as a new Hughie O’Donoghue’s painting White Water, also from 2017. Works by Frank Auerbach and Paula Rego include mid-career master works Head of Gerda Boehm, 1979 and Mouth Organ, 2003, respectively. As well as a new, rare, self-portrait drawing by Auerbach.

Jason Brooks, Tess Jaray and Nina Murdoch all explore the technical limitations of painting in three distinct ways. Brooks reworks, crops and repaints found old master paintings, creating a dialogue between the new and the old. Nina Murdoch’s, use of egg tempera means her large-scale paintings are painstakingly crafted with layers of translucent colour to achieve their distinct silky patina. Jaray’s work ‘Thorns C’ is an experiment with colour and pattern to create a deceptively simple shape which seems to shift and change with the viewers perspective.

Ken Kiff and Werner Büttner’s paintings reveal an interest in surreal juxtapositions of imagery and subject matter. Kiff’s caricature figures in The Violinist call to mind the darker origins of fairy tales. Whilst Büttner’s dreamlike scene is equally dark, depicting a skeleton wandering through an empty field.
