5 top Art Exhibits to see in London this April
‘The works in the exhibition reflect Parmiggiani’s ongoing commitment to investigating the human condition and the footprints we leave behind, the communication between the intimate and the exterior, and themes such as memory, absence, fragmentation, silence and uncertainty. His new works exhibited over two floors at the London gallery exemplify this vision and invite us to reflect on the vitality of creativity, our quest for knowledge and legacy, in the context of an increasingly violent and unstable world’.
Chris Levine: Who are wE + (24 April – 19 May) Private View: Tuesday 25 April
Chris Levine, the artist who transformed the image of Her Majesty the Queen in 3D, will reveal a new series of portraits at The Fine Art Society. His new subjects include British supermodel Naomi Campbell, explorer and author Sir Ranulph Fiennes and fashion designer, Paul Smith. With light at their core, the new series follows on from portraits in recent years of The Dalai Lama, Kate Moss and Her Majesty the Queen, described as one of the most iconic images of the twenty-first century.
Geraldine Swayne: Silvering (28 March – 19 April)
British artist, musician and filmmaker Geraldine Swayne, Geraldine Swayne presents a 10 year retrospective at the Fine Art Society until 19 April. Taken from diverse sources, such as personal photographs and pornographic magazines, Geraldine Swayne’s subjects are depicted on the verge of action, creating heightened drama. Her scenes are often awkward, haunting, sexy, bizarre, dark, or amusing – sometimes all at once. There is a subtle brevity of form and lightness of touch to Swayne’s style, which aligns her with artists such as Edgar Degas, and more recently Chantal Joffe, Ron Kitaj, and Marlene Dumas.
