October 2020

The highly anticipated Desmond Morris ‘in the 21st Century’ opens at Beaux Arts London.

“As a scientist, I have devoted half a century to studying human body-language and in that role I have analysed every tiny variation in facial expression. But that plays no part in my art. When I sit down in my studio and take up a brush, I switch off my scientific brain and let my imagination take over. If I paint a biomorphic head, it owes much more to the hundreds of my heads that have gone before it, than to any real human head. Each individual work is part of a lifelong evolutionary process that I began in 1944 and which I am still pursuing today in 2020.” Desmond Morris

BEAUX ARTS AT LONDON ART FAIR STAND 28

We are pleased to announce that Beaux Arts London will be at London Art Fair this year. We will be doing a feature wall on David Bomberg exhibiting some amazing examples of his work throughout his career from drawings to oil paintings.

Born in Birmingham in 1890 to Polish-Jewish parents, Bomberg was largely undervalued in his lifetime. Today, however, his series of colourful, complex geometric compositions which combine the influences of cubism and futurism are renowned and Bomberg stands as one of the masters of British painting.

“probably the most original, stubborn, radical intelligence…” (Frank Auerbach)

This superb group of paintings and drawings originate from the Artist’s estate in the late 1950s.

The Fair will be open from Wednesday 22 January until Sunday 26th January 2020.

For more information on works that will be exhibited at London Art Fair, please email the gallery at: info@beauxartslondon.uk


October 2019

We are pleased to announce that artist Marilène Oliver’s has been featured on TEDmed.com and is now available to watch.

From TEDMED.com – About this talk:

An artificial intelligence expert’s theory about a future world where we may need to download our consciousness to the datascape in order for us to survive led Marilène Oliver to ponder what a world like this would be like. She asked herself “If indeed we could download our consciousness to the datascape what would happen to the physical bodies left behind? Or, more worryingly, what kind of consciousness would we have if we had no body?”— it is through these questions that her work using digitized bodies emerged.

The epicenter of Marliène’s work truly is at the intersection of art and science. Her work, digitized bodies created from CT and MRI scans, offers a visual representation of a digitized future. As she explains, “For me, this material [CT scans and MRI scans] offers a fascinating preview of just where we may be headed as we delve deeper and deeper into the interface between human identity and machine created data”.

The Talk is live on TEDMED.com and YouTube. Please use the link to listen: https://www.tedmed.com/talks/show?id=731053.

May 2019

Beaux Arts London welcomed the Callino Quartet for an evening with Haydn to accompany the Sarah Gillespie solo Exhibition.

Sarah Gillespie wrote for the evening: ‘Although cellist Sarah McMahon was known to me through the Academy of Ancient Music, I first heard the Callino quartet play Haydn in the great medieval hall at Dartington in Devon.  I was artist in residence there for much of 2018 and as the Quartet were performing 9 concerts over five days, I had ample opportunity to soak up the beauty and sensitivity of their playing. Sarah and Becky – visited the studio during the week and gave me a CD of The Seven Last Words of our Saviour on the Cross. The music was a revelation to me – its depth and purity seeming to increase with every play.  These seven sequenced, meditative ‘sonatas’ have accompanied me in the long exile of the studio ever since.’

The Exhibition is open Monday to Saturday 11 – 6pm and there is a catalogue available on request.

Exhibition Dates at Beaux Arts London: On until Saturday 18 May 2019
