Resonance Art exhibition in the Royal Opera Arcade Gallery

The Katherine Maginnis visual arts agency is launching its first exhibition with a collection of abstract paintings at the ROA Gallery, London. Collaborating with emerging and midcareer artists of various disciplines, the intention is to develop work that is guided by a visceral sensibility. The show explores the interplay between the internal state and the exterior world inhabited by the artists. Painters, Dragica Carlin, Simon Cook, Nicholas de Serra and Clare Wilson interpret their surroundings, experiences and memories, to create works that are underpinned by an emotional resonance.  

Dragica Carlin searches for an abstract visual language that captures a metaphysical narrative. Through her paintings, Carlin explores the notion of the reciprocal action between man and his environment.  

Simon Cook’s new body of work has been paired down to an abstract entity. Employing natural materials with a synthetic colour palette, Cook creates paintings which posses a luminous quality and a spiritual connection.

Nicholas De Serra takes us on a journey where duality and difference combine to create works that quietly resonate. Influenced by the economic/political landscape and his rural surroundings, his densely detailed pieces are neither ‘Concrete’ nor descriptive narratives.

Clare Wilson’s paintings emerge from a process of layering, removing and reworking - in doing so, the works are simplified to a place of stillness. Wilson draws from the detail of a moment, its curious shadows, abstract movements, textures and memories which resurface in a veiled light.

Graffitti in Mall Mall showing in the ROA Gallery



Prize-winning young artist, Charles (“Charlie”) Anderson is to hold his first solo exhibition and sale in London at the Royal Opera Arcade Gallery between Monday, 28th March and Saturday, 2nd April 2011.
Primarily based in Edinburgh, Charlie Anderson is a painter whose work explores the historical role of painting and its place in contemporary art. By juxtaposing information and imagery taken from all aspects of contemporary life, he develops new and critical definitions, often with a satirical twist.

His paintings are reminiscent of the weathered, layered effect of street advertising and billboards, which he re-creates through the sole use of paint.

“Anderson recalls Rauschenberg without being derivative” Prof Duncan Macmillan
(Professor of the History of Scottish Art in the University of Edinburgh and principal art critic of The Scotsman)

While not denying the talent or popular and commercial appeal of Banksy, Lichtenstein and others, Charlie rejects such simplistic labels as Pop Art, Urban Art or Graffiti Art and feels that his own work speaks to the eye of a more demanding and discerning collector:  One who recognizes and values the classic skills of the artist.

“It is important to recognize the classic skills of the artist; such as drawing and painting. In my view, being edgy, observational or humorous is, in and of itself, simply not enough” said Charlie. 
“My exhibition in London, the epicenter of the Art World, is an opportunity for me to define what I mean.  I value and relish the opportunity and hope people will come and see my work.” he added.
Amongst his recognitions, Charlie won the British Airways Degree Show Prize and was awarded the Meyer Oppenheim Prize by the Scottish Academy.
His paintings are held by a number of well-known private and corporate collections. Their obvious appeal can be seen in the collection that will be exhibited.
The exhibition will be open daily between 10:00 and 19:00 from Monday,28thMarch until Friday 1st April and between 10:00 and 14:00 on Saturday,2ndApril.
