ART SEEN - 'Prisms of British Art'

Mid Morning Mix // Art & Culture // Sept. 14, 2015

“Prisms of British Art” kicks off on the 24th September and runs until 7th November this year at the Frank Pages Gallery in Geneva.

ART SEEN - 'Prisms of British Art'

Highlights include Brendan Neiland and Jack Milroy's attendance at the exhibition.

"Prisms of British Art" exhibits British Artists who have driven the British Art scene for more than 50 years. This event is co-curated by Art House Geneva founder, Evelyn Cantacuzene-Speransky in collaboration with the Frank Pages Gallery.

Sir Peter Blake is a leading figure in the art world and is often referred to as the godfather of British Pop Art. His works reflect his love affair with icons and popular culture. He is best known for designing the iconic album sleeve for the Beatles - Sgt Pepper.
Brendan Neiland will be present at the opening event on 24th September. Neiland is one of Britain’s foremost contemporary painters and printmakers represented in major museums including the Tate. Neiland exhibits illuminated signs & images of Neon, Cowgirls and Lipstick.
Alan Davie shares a surrealist vision with Joan Miro and follows his own inner painterly journey combining mythologies from a variety of cultures. His works can be found in the Tate.
Albert Irvin is best known for his exuberant abstract paintings, watercolours, screen prints and gouaches.  A commemorative tribute is planned for Irvin, who died this year at the Tate in September 2015.
Jack Milroy works with diverse materials; illustrated books, maps, stamps, tubes of paint. He manipulates images, using precision scalpel cut outs set in plexi glass boxes that reflect monumental events eg. Garden of Eden and themes such as Death. There is a balance between the violent, the witty & the playful, the surreal and the fairy tale.
