Katrine Levin Galleries : The Woodblock Prints of Chen Li | 3 – 8 June 2019

Monday, May 27th, 2019

Coinciding with the display of Chen Li’s artwork at The British Museum

Chinese art and Western art have different views about reality. But when I paint, I ignore [these] rules to create living artistic images. (Chen Li)

China’s frontier Yunnan Province is a place of spectacular landscapes and predominantly Buddhist philosophy. It is the home of Chen Li.

Chen Li is a master woodblock printmaker and an extraordinary painter with a unique vision and boundless originality. His joyful, dynamic, and intoxicatingly peaceful works convey the life-affirming energy of Yunnan.

In his woodblock prints, Chen Li uses Yunnan’s rare “waste-block” or “suicide” technique that leaves no room for error. All colours are printed from a single woodblock, each step carving over the previous one until the block is destroyed. Only a single edition is possible.

Our fourth solo exhibition of Chen Li’s works coincides with the display of his “Human Buddha” woodblock print at The British Museum, just 8 minutes walk from the gallery. This work was acquired by the Museum after our first solo exhibition of his woodblocks in 2018.

WHEN: 3 – 8 June 2019

Katrine Levin Galleries : The Magical Worlds of Mamuka Dideba | 31 May – 6 June 2019

Monday, May 20th, 2019

RUSSIAN … AND GEORGIAN … ART WEEK LONDON 2019

One of the oldest cultures in Europe and Central Asia, Georgia is a land of inspiration, diversity, and artistic mastery. It is the home of Mamuka Dideba.

The art of Dideba, who is dubbed “Georgia’s Bruegel”, brings joy through a unique expression of the wonder, the subtle humour, and the warm and often surreal philosophical outlook that is quintessentially Georgian.

A master of figurative and abstract, Dideba paints in exquisite Renaissance-era imprimatura technique that lights up the paintings from within – a process that requires enormous skill.

Inspired by the Old Masters and Georgia’s rich history, Dideba explores beauty through vivid characters whose unconventional forms and faces convey their essence with gentle humour.  The whimsical background and clothing of the figures incorporate elements of Dideba’s abstracted works, acting as an unconscious bridge between the genres.

His abstracted paintings lure deep inside their magical and irresistibly contemplative worlds through an ingenious interplay of light and colour. It is possible to “walk” for hours through their imperceptibly changing shades.

Born in 1968 in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, Dideba studied at the prestigious Nikoladze School of Art and the Tbilisi State Art Academy. Dideba is known as “Georgia’s Bruegel” because of his deviation from realistic proportions and interest in human behaviour.

The Future is Female @ Dellasposa Gallery

Monday, April 15th, 2019

AWAD  celebrated women in the arts at Dellasposa Gallery exhibition ‘The Future is Female’ on the 27th of March. The event featured a talk presented by Ehryn Torrell – one of four exhibiting artists (see featured image on this page) as well as AWAD Founder & CEO Susan J Mumford.

About the exhibition /

The Future is Female presents new artworks by Alicia PazTahnee LonsdaleEhryn Torrell, and Gail Olding. All artists have a powerful message conveyed through their work that is rooted in the experience of women’s place in the world. 

The artists featured in the exhibition explore ideas of femininity and feminism. Investigating the role of women from the perspective of the past, present, and future, the artist’s multi-disciplinary works draw inspiration from contemporary visual culture with a rich and layered tapestry of cultural references from history and different locations. While gender is not the only theme found in their work, there is a common thread of women’s personal freedom of expression that weaves together the narrative of the exhibition. Through the vision of the artist’s work, we can see that the future is female.

‘The Future is Female’ is open until the 4th of May 2019.
