INTERSECTION an new exhibition at B&B Gallery

INTERSECTION 
An exhibition of new works by Jonathan Wilkinson &
Florence Blanchard / October 17th – November 3rd 
B&B are pleased to announce our latest exhibition, a collaboration between Jonathan Wilkinson (UK) and Florence Blanchard (FR) titled INTERSECTION.The show celebrates common interests and explores similarities between their studio practices, executed with their own individual style, approach and personality. Wilkinson explains – “We both work from found images and fragments of imagery which depict the modern built environment, as well vehicles and objects that inhabit such a landscape.” Blanchard agrees – “Our artworks have independently evolved towards painting dreamy situations inspired by our own experiences, tinted with an uncertainty of what the future holds. INTERSECTION felt like the perfect outlet to bring our individual world’s together as a way of creating a broader narrative based on these shared themes.” Iconic structures, vehicles and architecture sit alongside animals and abstract forms inhabiting an imagined world, situated somewhere between an American film set and a science-fiction comic book based in suburban Yorkshire. We look forward to seeing you there.

ACCESS SPACE

While on Sidney street I drank 6 cups of tea, spoke with about 25 people, ignored a good 55, rescued someone from a parking garage, indicated where to find shops, train station, college, restaurant, heard ‘you missed a spot’ about 33 times, and in between managed to paint this.

Flux Opening

I had a lovely time at the opening on Thursday. Greenwich is a beautiful area of london, and the gallery is right next to the famous Cutty Sark, and a small walk from the Royal Observatory which offers a fantastic view on London. Very cool. Here are a few photos, thanks to everyone who showed up x

FLUX: a new exhibition in London.

Starting next month (April 18) is my new exhibition in collaboration with british artist Jo Peel at Ben Oakley gallery 9 Turnpin Lane, Greenwich Market London SE10. If you are in town please come by! x

FLUX – a new exhibition by Jo Peel and Florence Blanchard – features visions of despairing urban landmarks and aims to warn us about the imminent loss of ‘taken for granted’ urban icons of our current society. Peel looks at the high street, its days numbered as stalwarts of our cultural landscape are closed down and re-imagined to service the changing needs of our society, while Blanchard imagines the cities of tomorrow with a twist of surrealism and humour. Both artists will show new works on canvas and paper.Untitled
