C20th avante-garde painting and sculpture.
28 February - 23 March 2013
Annely Juda Fine Art is exhibiting in its 3rd floor gallery a group of abstract paintings and sculptures showing a variety of artist's work that have common themes. Resonant through the exhibition is the cicrcular motif as explored by Ben Nicholson in the work White Relief, Ivan Kliun's Untitled painting from 1922 and Naum Gabo in his sculpture Construction in Space, 1969.
Anthony Caro's 1965 sculpture Cleeve sits between two paintings by Friedrich Vordemberge-Gildewart; Caro's simple forms and primary colour echos the triangular shapes, the floating horizontal and vertical lines explored by Gildewart. A brightly coloured Kenneth Martin painting; Chance, Order, Change 20,1981 shows a dense forest of diagional lines, interweaving over a thickly painted white back ground, its as if you'd peered closely through the tight grid of nylon threads that wrap themselve around the perspex form of the Naum Gabo's Linear Construction in Space No. 1, 1944.
Also showing are drawings by Kasimir Malevich, Olga Rozanova, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and Joseph Albers, paintings by Liubov Popova, Max Bill and Alexandra Exter with sculptures by Naum Gabo and Anthony Caro.
