Workplace is pleased to inaugurate its new temporary exhibition space in East London with Interludes, featuring works by Louise Giovanelli, Olivia Jia, Johnny Izatt-Lowry, Ciarán Murphy, Isabel Nolan, Olivia Sterling and Miko Veldkamp. The exhibition looks beyond the gallery program by showcasing the works of four international artists, some of whom have never been exhibited in London before, alongside some of the UK's most exciting emerging artists. Interludes, epitomises Workplace's commitment to forging connections between contemporary artists internationally, whilst also being the first in a series of shows in the gallery's new location aimed at introducing the work of emerging and mid-career artists to new audiences.
The exhibition brings together a group of artists whose work offers a glimpse into the diverse approaches and themes explored through painting today. When placed in conversation with one another, the works reveal a shared pictorial sensibility and a concern with painting itself, which manifests through each artist's rigorous approach to the medium. Isolated objects and cropped figures appear throughout the works in the exhibition, suggesting layered, hidden and non-linear narratives which are left to the viewer to unfold. Removed from their original contexts these objects and figures are used by each artist as formal elements, as well as symbols and access points into diverse experienced and imagined realities.
