We are very pleased to announce artist, designer and Surface View collaborator Michael Angove's first solo exhibition of brand new trompe l'oeil drawings at the newly refurbished Hollywood Road Gallery, Chelsea.
' Michael Angove's work is a welcome example of the neglected art of fine drawing. His trompe l'oeil is at once cerebal and austere but invokes a nostalgic notion of a forgotton memory; and his pencil drawings of familiar objects in a narrative compostition are treated with such a delicate touch as to become hauntingly beautiful and utterly desireable. '
- Clare Johnston, Royal College of Art.
The collection includes beautifully intricate drawings of keys, feathers, spoons, string and thread, quail's eggs, marbles, dried roses and in a few cases 24ct gold. This new collection focuses more on the narrative as well as exquisite drawing technique; A quail's egg might be a planet, a feather might be considered a shield while a spoon could be a character. In their own right they are fine drawings that are hauntingly provocative.
All drawings will be available to buy. We'll see you there!
Where, Hollywood Road Gallery, London, SW10 9HY.
When, 13th September - 22nd September, 2012.
