Blanco Gallery presents ‘Reflections’. An exhibition of figurative painting, sculpture, installation and performance from Jungwon Jay Hur, Margarita Frančeska leva Loze, Rachel Lonsdale and Tom Mead.

The artists reflect on their memories in comparison to the reality of now, to look upon their pasts with the knowledge of the future in mind. With an attempt to hold on to what has been lost, a melancholic, warped form of nostalgia remains. The narrative-focused artists bring a familiar yet corrupted echo to life, that comes from reflecting on past memories or projecting these emotions onto vaguely sentimental objects and forms, where a viewer may recognise elements from a distance, creating a feeling of knowing that becomes uncanny or disrupted on a closer inspection. Sometimes clinging to visuals and ideology from childhood and cinema, the artwork juxtaposes this imagery from what the artists try to ignore, the truth of growing up; the rising costs, the worsening climate, the lowering living standards.

Private View Friday 18th 6:30 - 8:30pm
‘There is literally no edge of the sun/ my carpet has no edges’ performance by Rachel Lonsdale at 7:30pm
