No Show Space: works in series, London, UK
noshowspace is pleased to launch a gallery shop for Works in series, a collection of unique artworks made in series.
Works in series includes paintings, drawings, documents, artefacts and works on paper, often made in preparation of large-scale or site specific works. Derived from studio practice the works capture the thought processes and creative motivations of the artists involved.
Some works follow conceptual series, such as Martin John Callanan's legal document that certifies his existence or David Cunningham's use of an algorithm to arrange the alphabet out of sequence. Others are more loosely bound by preoccupations in the studio. Things to think about while looking at the sky by Shaan Syed are pure pigment screen prints which use the screen of the printing process as a palette to blend one pure hue into another. Caline Aoun also builds a colour field, by repeatedly overprinting onto digital transfer film she generates an unexpected painterly process from inky marks, drips, streaks and mis-registrations.
The shop launches with works by Caline Aoun, Matt Calderwood, Martin John Callanan, David Cunningham, Susanna Heron, Alistair McClymont, Rie Nakajima, Giorgio Sadotti, Daniel Sturgis, Shaan Syed and Serra Tansel. All can be viewed at noshow project space by request or online at www.noshowspace.com
As a small-scale arts organisation noshowspace works closely with artists and works are released for sale in order to help fund exhibitions. Sales from the series equally support the project and the artists, with prices ranging between £90 to £2500, and discount rates available on sets. The portfolio will continue to evolve and grow in response to the gallery programme.
