New original prints by Kate Boxer - 26 May to 16 June 2012
Although we have shown Kate Boxer’s work for about a year now, this will be our first solo exhibition with this exciting and adventurous artist. The new series of original prints based on portraits. Figures portrayed in the exhibition include George Sand, Napolean and Caesar.
George Sand is the French literary figure, who once said: "There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved."
This sentiment applies to many of us, but most of all to artists, and judging by the popularity of her work, Kate Boxer should be very happy!
The filmmaker Bruno Wolheim has written about her work and her 'idiosyncratic and deeply felt' subject matter. He points out how in her cowboy paintings "Howard Hawks meets high camp, High Sierra and Frank O'Hara. High fun meets high seriousness."
George Melly once described Kate Boxer as "a remarkable creative spirit: her images and the means to realise them are at one."
Kate Boxer uses a number of print techniques in her work including dry point, carborundum and chin colle as well as hand colouring. This gives each print in an edition a slight variation to others, and engenders her works with an individuality akin to that found in the animal and plant worlds.
Her prints are exciting, vibrant and sometimes quirky, but always made with integrity and a high degree of skill. It is no wonder that they are much in demand. In the first half of 2012 alone she has to prepare works for four exhibitions in London and the South East, including a completely new body of work this exhibition at Zimmer Stewart Gallery: "Hello, This is Caesar", which later on will also be shown in London.
