This is the first in a series of exhibitions wherein the gallery invites two artists to exhibit a selection of new work alongside each other. The purpose is not to seek to unify two distinct and different practices, but rather to open up a dialogue between the artists, and invite the visitor to compare and contrast the work of two contemporary artists, and provoke discussion and debate.
The exhibition looks at two contemporary painters: Geraldine Gliubislavich, a VEGAS-represented artist based in Brussels, and Hrvoje Majer, a Croatian artist living and working in London, and examines their different approaches to painting.
Both graduates of Central St Martins School of Art, the two artists have shown extensively in the UK and internationally. Winner of the 2009 Jerwood Contemporary Painting Prize, Gliubislavich has had solo shows in London, Brussels and Amsterdam and shown at such prestigious venues as the Royal College of Art.
Majer has shown his works in Italy, Croatia and The UK. Since being included in Young Croatian Artists at Galleria Contemporanea Lissone, Italy, Majer has had solo shows in both Croatia and London.
