SALON 002: Bram Bogart
- 13 July — 10 September 2017 *on now
The Dutch-born Belgian artist, Bram Bogart, (1921 - 2012) is an artist associated with bold, thickly physical colour and form. His legacy is the culmination over seven decades of the foundational modernist impulse to stage and progress the stuff of paint. 'Witte de Witte' comprises a group of rare monochrome or near monochrome works made between 1952 and 2006 which illustrate his achievement through relative context without the seduction of colour, allowing his contribution to the story of modernism to be witnessed in starker, more elemental and more overtly physical terms.
The exhibition illustrates Bogart’s shift in the fifties and sixties into pure abstraction and his progressive inquiry into and testing of the material surface of painting. This restriction of colour he said, 'evoked a kind of tranquility in me’ despite constantly striving for 'the field of tension to be retained’.
The works point us in the direction of other in the artist’s personal pantheon, to the asceticism and severities of Piet Mondrian or the brooding sea and landscapes of Flemish expressionist Constant Permeke. But it is not all asceticism and severity. Even here in these reductive circumstances – even with red, blue, green and yellow banished – we may still feel how much Bogart shared with his hero Van Gogh an open attitude to life and to sensation, a directness, a just-controlled turbulence and an appealing gaucheness. Like Fontana, who instigated swaps of work, he challenged the sculptural qualities of the void and has left a vital and important contribution to the history of art.
Prints and Originals Gallery | Ecstatic Rays
- 25 July — 28 August 2017 *on now
The works have been created across a multitude of media including painting, photography, print-making, drawing and collage. The range of subjects explored by the artists is similarly wide ranging - from abstract works to figurative pieces and from meditations on colour & form to overt socio-political commentary.
These are artists that we believe are worthy of attention and whom show great potential for the future. The featured artists are Mildred Palmer, Andrew Millar, Tom Shedden, Pakal, Olly Fathers, Zabou, Harry Jones, Elektro Team and SKU.
An exhibition of these works will be installed in the Prints & Originals Gallery at the Saatchi Gallery, London from 25 July to 28 August 2017.
