1. Check out Lola Rose Thompson's 'Classic Stone Face' exhibition at TenOverSix from March 29th to April 26th in Los Angeles. A selected body of work by Lola Rose Thompson, curated by interior designer Yaoska Davila. Thompson’s paintings move playfully between subjects, from ancient relics to sex, politics to psychics. Her whimsical titles project voices into her figures, describing the fantasies of half-forgotten relics and the sexual preferences of marble sculptures. From subtle watercolors rendered with an ultra-light touch to psychedelic oil paintings bursting with thick layers of color, all of Thompson’s paintings are brimming with wit, naked bodies, mythological types and female prowess. x

     

  2. Filmarmalade Presents Beth Fox, My First Retrospective (one day only…)
    6th March 2014 12 – 9pm
    Drinks available from 6 – 9pm

    Filmarmalade are proud to present the first major retrospective of the self-seminized conceptual sculptor, filmmaker and general l’enfant terrible Beth Fox.

    “Beth Fox’s work espouses a complex form of reflexive post-modern humour with influences as diverse as Kierkegaard and Woody Allen. Through the medium of sculpture and text, new variations are synthesised
    from both opaque and transparent meanings and what starts out as contemplation soon becomes manipulated into a hegemony of defeat, leaving only a sense of unreality and the unlikelihood of a new order.”
    August DeWitt (writer, intellectual, art critic, feminist, political activist and gender theorist)

    Fox recently recently exhibited work at Divus Gallery, London, Sluice, London, Angus-Hughes Gallery,London, the Horse Hospital, London and the Bunkhouse Gallery, Madrid. She was born in Ireland and lives
    and works in London.

    Filmarmalade is a publisher and DVD label specialising in contemporary artistsʼ film and video works.

    "I’M CURATING MY OWN SOLO SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111" is the first UK solo exhibition of Irish artist Beth Fox.

    Fox’s practice involves an investigation into the legacies of conceptual and appropriation art. Incorporating sculpture, drawing and text Fox’s work questions the structures and dynamics of the art world through the eyes of the “struggling artist” archetype. Her work employs self-conscious humour to question the dynamics of the institute; the relationships and/or power struggles between art and artist/artist and curator/curator and gallerist/gallerist and collector/audience and artist/gallerist and art/collector and gallerina. Much of her work is concerned with hierarchies in art institutions and the space that exists between “emerging”, “established” and “successful” art/ists.

    About the artist:

    Beth Fox gained employment at an early age working for a local Shepherd in the lonely hills on the west coast of Ireland. One day she was discovered by a passing nobleman who witnessed her quietly sketching sheep in the sand with a pointed stick. The nobleman was so taken with her talent and skill that he took her away with him and trained her as a painter in his studio in Florence. One day while she was painting the cherub-like face of an angel in the background of one of the nobleman’s majestic canvases he stopped her. The brush fell from his hand in astonishment as he realised that he had nothing left to teach her.
    She became the master, and he the pupil.
