New Work - Painting
Martin Poppe + Kimathi Mafofo
Large-scale canvases filled with cloudscapes and sun-bleached foliage create a lofty, ethereal atmosphere while tall, curved sculptures form a meandering pathway through the space, suggesting a bodily presence and a sense of groundedness. A Piece of Me, Martine Poppe’s latest solo exhibition at Kristin Hjellegjerde London, takes the form of an immersive installation in which viewers are invited into the artist’s “cloud museum”, a place of calm expansiveness and interconnectivity.
South African artist Kimathi Mafafo’s bold, new collection of textile works invite audiences into a vibrant, tactile landscape where expressive hand gestures float amidst the verdant foliage and sensual female figures emerge between blooming floral forms. Gestures from the Awakened Mind, the artist’s first solo exhibition with Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, celebrates the liberated black female body and the power of the collective while also exploring art’s ability to offer space for healing and contemplation.
