The Winchester Tapestries
Formed of a frontal and a dorsal, The Winchester Cathedral Tapestries have been designed by Maggi Hambling CBE and made at the Ateliers Pinton in the Aubusson region of France. They represent the collaboration of an inspiring contemporary artist with the traditional skills of a French tapestry workshop. The result is something truly fitting for the spectacular setting of the Cathedral’s High Altar in front of the magnificent 15th Century Screen. The tapestries will be dedicated by the Dean of Winchester, The Very Revd James Atwell, at this year’s Winchester Festival Evensong.
These tapestries, the artist’s first, reflect Hambling’s response to the energy of the sea. Each panel depicts a long wave as it reaches the shore: the frontal at night and the dorsal at either sunrise or sunset. These panels combine to produce a perpetual cycle of light to dark, day to night, land to water and earth to sea. They take up the image of creation in the first chapter of the Book of Genesis and the power of the sea in the psalms.
Speaking of her work, Maggi Hambling says that "Each wave can be seen as a self-regenerative force, untameable by man, but speaking of the power of God. The organic curve of the wave, which is both horizontal and diagonal, complements the formal vertical structure of the architecture and statuary above the High Altar, creating a dialogue between old and new."http://winchester-cathedral.org.uk/2013/07/03/the-winchester-tapestries

Daniel Enkaoua : First solo Museum show at the Vila Casas foundation, Barcelona
20.09.12 - 26.12.12
Daniel Enkaoua to hold first solo Museum show at Vila Casas foundation, Barcelona. With profound and poetic expressionistic brushstrokes the work of this internationally known painter projects, from its human landscapes and intimate still-lives, one of the great concerns of contemporary creators – the limits of perception. Imaginary/real spaces, fiction/simulation, presence/absence, are all opposite relationships that the artist projects onto the surface of the canvas in order to raise questions in the mind of the viewer.http://www.fundaciovilacasas.com/en/Exhibitions-and-activities/_date:2012-09-20/

New paintings and prints
Paula Rego: Balzac and other stories
29 May – 30 June 2012
The Directors of Marlborough Fine Art are delighted to announce their forthcoming exhibition of new paintings and graphics by Paula Rego. This exhibition coincides with the publication of the revised and updated Catalogue Raisonné by Tom Rosenthal of Thames & Hudson.
One of Honoré de Balzac's most celebrated tales, The Unknown Masterpiece is the story of a painter who, depending on one's perspective, is either an abject failure or a transcendental genius - or both. The story has served as an inspiration to artists as various as Cézanne, Henry James, Picasso, and Paula Rego.
The sumptuously produced Catalogue Raisonné discusses and illustrates all Rego’s prints, including unpublished work. The second edition includes chapters on five new series produced since 2003 – Moon Eggs, Prince Pig, Wine, Curved Planks and Female Genital Mutilation; on the influence of Irish playwright Martin McDonagh’s work on Rego; and an updated section of Works Out of Series.
Many of Rego’s prints are based on themes, as she says that one image triggers the idea for the next. Among these are Rego’s Nursery Rhymes, which reveal a darkly humorous take on the difficulties of childhood, and provide a rich seam for her precocious girls and individually characterized animals. Her work is known for revealing complex stories about the sinister side of sexuality and family relations, and Rego’s feminism underlies everything she does: the six works in the Female Genital Mutilation series are some of the most powerful images that she has ever produced.
A fully illustrated catalogue of the exhibition will be published with an introduction by Tom Rosenthal. The revised edition of Paula Rego: The Complete Graphic Work will be available for purchase at the Gallery.
Paula Rego - Casa das Histórias
7 July - 31 December 2011
Oratório is the artist's most recent work, a three-dimensional piece developed after a request by the Foundling Museum in London, the first institution to house abandoned children in the city. It seems like a piece of furniture almost three metres tall, and combines drawings and sculptures, similar to old Portuguese oratories. The sculptures represent children dressed in the Foundling Hospital uniform, placed against a background made up of two drawings. Just as in the old oratories, this is made up by a pair of doors with two drawings. This work appears to show a new direction in Paula Rego's work, interacting between drawing and sculpture. Paula Rego returns to the theme of the vulnerability of the youngest in these drawings and sculptures, showing their loneliness and abandonment. The children's painful situation is evoked by the way in which the artist organises the figures in the Oratório, as if it were an altar. Several preparatory drawings and drawings dealing with the same theme can also be found on display, all meticulously drawn on paper using Conté pencil. The Oratório was exhibited for the first time in London, at the Foundling Museum, and was then displayed in the first large retrospective exhibition dedicated to Paula Rego in Latin America (Mexico and Brazil).

Clive Head: Modern Perspectives
at The National Gallery
13 October – 28 November 2010
This autumn, to coincide with the Sainsbury Wing exhibition Venice: Canaletto and his Rivals, the National Galley is inviting two contemporary artists to display work looking at the urban landscape. The first of these artists, Clive Head, will display three works exploring new ways to represent London.
In Canaletto, Clive Head finds an artist who, like himself, reinvents the urban landscape, creating paintings which resemble the real world without simply repeating it.
Head gathers visual information from site drawings, photography and studio studies. He combines these images to create artwork with surprising results. Head does not repeat a single viewpoint like a camera. Instead he shows multiple views in a single painting. The resulting works capture the experience of looking and moving around a scene.

Paintings and Etchings
17 April - 22 May 2010
Celia Paul will display her recent paintings and etchings at Quest 21, Brussels. This will then move onto Quest, Flanders.
Paul's paintings and drawings are intimate portraits of people she knows well and invariably depict a single model or group. "My work is about people and their emotions", she has said. Her dark toned paintings are reminiscent of old masters and share an interest in the effect of light. Her paintings often have a monumental quality, but she is equally adept at capturing emotion in a small softground etching.

The Guardian, Sunday February 28 2010
A show at Marlborough Fine Art in London of new paintings by Thérèse Oulton opened last month. In her foreword to the catalogue, Oulton announced an abrupt change in her identity, a change, she noted ruefully, denied by her fans who staunchly aver that the new works are "still recognisably, coherently" hers. She is the same artist but something has happened to her, suddenly. As she says, there are no transitional works. The calligraphy is still unmistakably hers, but it is used in these new works to say something different, even profound, as if with one bound she had escaped from self-consciousness. The art press found little to say about the show, possibly because Oulton is out of fashion, luckily for her.

Mat Collishaw, Tracey Emin and Paula Rego
27 January - 9 May 2010
Mat Collishaw, Tracey Emin and Paula Rego are to show new and related works at the Foundling Museum in London throughout its eighteenth-century interiors as well as outside spaces. All of the works link to the story of the Foundling Hospital, Britain’s first home for abandoned children, and its themes of childhood and separation. The exhibition will include paintings, works on paper, bronzes and installations throughout the Museum as well as external spaces.
Curated by Gill Hedley for the Foundling Museum’s contemporary art strand, this exhibition brings together these three acclaimed artists for the first time. Each artist is well-known internationally for powerful responses to pain and anguish associated with aspects of childhood, motherhood, abortion and loss.
Paula Rego has made a major new work combining several paintings in the form of a devotional altarpiece with life-size figures of foundling children in the powerful installation “Oratorio”. Depicting the fall from grace of women in the eighteenth century and the devastating repercussions, this work combines images of seduction, rape and infanticide with a specific reference to Hogarth’s famous “Gin Lane”, on permanent display in the Museum, as well as little scenes of childhood tenderness.

London Building Sites 1952-62 at The Courtauld Gallery
16 October 2009 until 17 January 2010
This is the first exhibition to explore the extraordinary group of paintings of post-war London building sites by Frank Auerbach (born 1931), one of Britain's greatest living artists.
The exhibition reunites the complete series of building site paintings together with rarely seen oil sketches and a number of recently rediscovered sketchbook drawings. These works are among the most important contributions to post-war painting in Britain. The show gives the first comprehensive account of these works, which are among the most profound responses made by any artist to the post-war urban landscape.
