Susanna Storch: Facades @ Highgate Gallery

Facade VIII (London), acrylic on canvas, 125 x 90cm, Susanna Storch 2019. All rights reserved

Highgate Gallery is delighted to be hosting the first ever London show of German artist Susanna Storch, whose exhibition comes to us from the Zofia Weiss Gallery in Cracow.

Susanna’s striking, large-scale paintings in acrylic reveal randomly observed scenes of everyday life, in an urban context.  Both people and buildings form her subject matter, and are given equal attention as we glimpse into the lives of the anonymous inhabitants of the city, whether it is Paris, Prague, London, Santiago de Chile, Valparaiso, Frankfurt, Tallin or her home town of Mainz.  Windows create the border between public and private space, and offer almost no view of the rooms behind.  This tension between the visible and the invisible give the paintings a narrative quality, as if one is watching a story about to unfold.  Reflections on the window panes, and curtain drapery, add a fluidity to the harsh geometry of the architectural exteriors, as well as offering a reflection of life back to the viewer.

Susanna has been developing her style, which she describes as Figurative Realism, since studying in Munich and Mainz in the 1980s.  She is also a portrait painter, and with both her Facades and her portraits, photographs form the basis of the pictures, which are worked up back in the studio.  She is a prolific artist who has exhibited in over 50 shows and art fairs since 2001, and she has work in public museums as well as private collections.

Exhibition continues until 26 Sept.

Night Music, by Patrick Hourihan.

Shadowman: Surrealist Artworks by Patrick Hourihan.  11– 24 October 2019

An exhibition about a Surrealist journey and its discoveries.

‘Inside Patrick Hourihan’s skull there nestles a mental coral reef alive with magical images of unknown dramas and unfamiliar conflicts.  His private world is as intense, as complicated and as visually captivating as anything the ocean reefs have to offer.  His technical wizardry allows him to explore this world of the unconscious and permits us to eavesdrop on its many perverse and contradictory scenes.  His work has the special merit of being instantly recognisable as his. No other artist comes close to his imagery.  An intrepid internal explorer, he is quite splendidly alone in his voyages of irrational beauty.’     Desmond Morris, April 2019.

This selection of paintings, drawings and boxed found objects represents the work of London-based Surrealist Patrick Hourihan.  He has used automatic drawing and other channels of accidental discovery as a way to unlock the poetic potential and sense of the Marvellous that awaits in seemingly mundane and unexpected situations of everyday life.  The spirit of the Shadowman exhibition seduces the viewer to look through newly opened windows with the dreamer’s innocent eye.

Patrick Hourihan is London born.  He studied at the Watford School of Art.  He has been creating imaginative worlds since childhood, leading to a love of Surrealism while at college.  He was, for a number of years, an active member of the Surrealist London Action Group (SLAG).

‘Inside Patrick Hourihan’s skull there nestles a mental coral reef alive with magical images of unknown dramas and unfamiliar conflicts.  His private world is as intense, as complicated and as visually captivating as anything the ocean reefs have to offer.  His technical wizardry allows him to explore this world of the unconscious and permits us to eavesdrop on its many perverse and contradictory scenes.  His work has the special merit of being instantly recognisable as his. No other artist comes close to his imagery.  An intrepid internal explorer, he is quite splendidly alone in his voyages of irrational beauty.’      Desmond Morris, April 2019.

This selection of paintings, drawings and boxed found objects represents the work of London-based Surrealist Patrick Hourihan.  He has used automatic drawing and other channels of accidental discovery as a way to unlock the poetic potential and sense of the Marvellous that awaits in seemingly mundane and unexpected situations of everyday life.  The spirit of the Shadowman exhibition seduces the viewer to look through newly opened windows with the dreamer’s innocent eye.

Patrick Hourihan is London born.  He studied at the Watford School of Art.  He has been creating imaginative worlds since childhood, leading to a love of Surrealism while at college.  He was, for a number of years, an active member of the Surrealist London Action Group (SLAG).
