RICHARD HAMILTON WORD AND IMAGE: PRINTS 1963-2007

  • 7 March — 31 May 2015

Dubbed the forefather of Pop Art, the themes and concerns of Hamilton's paintings and drawings were also pursued in his graphic design works on which he collaborated with some of the greatest master printers of the twentieth century. The selection of 43 works represents the full range of his technical accomplishments from traditional engraving, etching and aquatint, to screen print in the 1960s, and ending with the newly emergent digital media embraced by the artist in his later years.

His appropriation of imagery from popular culture is reflected in such early prints as Adonis in Y fronts 1963. Wider contemporary and political issues provide the subjects of the Swingeing London suite and number of works concerning the troubles in Ireland.

An exhibition organised and toured by Barbican International Enterprises.

JUSTIN MORTIMER

  • 7 March — 31 May 2015

Justin Mortimer's canvases have been described as history painting for the present age, fragmented scenes hinting at political and social upheaval, and detailed unspecified acts of human cruelty and suffering. In his recent work, these scenes are typically enacted in an indeterminate space, often in scrub woodland at night illuminated by the flash of a camera or the sulphurous glow of a flare.

His subjects are never literal or explicit but operate on a viscerally emotional and psychological level, creating a general aura of malaise and foreboding. Frequently this darkly sinister mood is given a sharper edge through the introduction of an incongruous detail such as a cluster of party balloons.

Academically trained, and for the early part of his career a successful portraitist, Mortimer is one of a growing number of international contemporary artists - especially from eastern Europe - who have reinvigorated the tradition of figurative painting.

His imagery is gleaned from the internet and digitally collaged to create the starting point for his compositions. In this respect, the work has an affinity with that of Richard Hamilton (running concurrently in Gallery 2 p.10) who in his later years readily embraced digital media as a vital element of popular culture.
