Back to work that week, very busy with unpacking , driving class, dentist , doctor but at least i also fitted my first Hampstead ladies Pond swim...it was glorious
Friday 26 June: APEX
We popped to the Crypt Gallery to see a show called Apex: it was really cool, predators added onto Ikea cityscape. Reallt interestinga nd i do love that venue. Followed by birthday dinner with Patricia and Gabriel.
The artist promises to “flood the space with landscapes of the city swamp and portraits of its rulers”.
This show is the culmination of a three year project for the artist. Browne masters a figurative symbolism opened to a variety of interpretations, not the least political. He says APEX is “conceptually focused on the ever present drivers of power, dominance and hierarchy. The series reflect on the still, primordial core held underneath the evolved urban crust”. Such world is revealed employing skyscrapers, crocodiles, suits, snakes. New York and London, the financial (and art) markets of the world, come under scrutiny.
