London Art Fair 2021

We are delighted to be taking part in the 2021 Virtual London Art Fair with our Platform Exhibition entitled "Silhouette".

Returning for its 33rd edition the Fair will present 63 leading modern and contemporary galleries in an alternative online format, with a unique programme of inspiring digital initiatives, accompanying the online Viewing Rooms.

The “Platform” exhibition focuses on a single distinct theme and curator Candida Stephens has selected Galleries presenting well known, overlooked and emerging artists that align with the theme of Folk Art, for the 2021 edition. We will be showing a collection selected to celebrate distinctive reductive shapes and forms found in works of historic Folk Art, in both two and three dimensions, entitled “Silhouette” with an emphasis on birds.

This curated collection aims to explore the timeless qualities of anonymously created naive art in a contemporary context
