None of my ideas seem to come from dreams. More often they seem to come from when I am most awake. – Geoff McFetridge

Ivory & Black Soho proudly presents “Around Us & Between Us”, the first solo exhibition in London since 2005 by the Los Angeles based artist Geoff McFetridge – A multidisciplinary artist without creative boundaries who’s life work ranges from poetry to installation, painting to graphic design and many other practices in between. For his “Around Us & Between Us” exhibition, Geoff has created a series of 10 new acrylic paintings on canvas on his distinctive and reductive style, giving each different subject the same treatment and refinery.

In the artist’s own words: Images are central to my painting. The images are varied, while my treatment of them is very consistent. The imagery is refined to a point of anonymous functionality. The paintings are meant to feel as if they were pulled directly from the lexicon.I paint some things because they are things that I have seen, but more importantly, I believe they are things that the viewer has seen. I am painting from life, but not life purely found in the landscape, but the also psychological, mediated, and transcendental world that infects our consciousness.

“By pointing the lens at something, I am asking a question, and the photograph is sometimes the answer.” – Lisette Model

Ivory & Black Soho proudly presents “Sometimes the Answer”, a new show by Cheryl Dunn, which will be the debut exhibition of the new gallery in London’s Soho. The exhibition will feature a wide range of photographs from Dunn’s 30 years of signature documentation. In the artist’s words, “At first it may seem ambiguous, but I think it is timely…given the political climate in the world and our inundation with media, collective sanity is very difficult. Nothing is cut and dry, so the answer needs to come from within. When I feel insane, I head to the streets.” Dunn lets her photographic instinct guide this selection of work, inviting the viewer to draw their own conclusions, revise their opinions, or see things in a new light. “I’m a huntress, only I hunt for images, and that’s how I approach shooting ” The works are united by Dunn’s uncanny ability to keep her finger on the pulse of contemporary American youth. The exhibition will be accompanied by the release of a limited edition artist’s book of Dunn’s photographs.
