I am very excited to be selected as part of the 8th Salon des Refusés, after being a finalist in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. In the tradition of the 19th century Parisian Salon des Refusés, any artworks considered to be unconventional and non-establishment, were exhibited such as Manet's "Le Dejeuner sur l'herbe” painting.
This will be the third consecutive year that I have showed in the London Summer exhibition season; firstly with my sold out work at the Royal Academy in 2016, then with a private gallery Daniel Raphael in Marylebone, and now at the Camden Image Gallery in London.
" It’s always a delight to see the love affair between an artist and their medium and it’s a thrill to catch it in infancy and watch it grow.
These new works are surface-aware and have an acutely tactile finish. Bass’s beloved Dutch paintings now provide the visual backdrop, becoming the canvas upon which she lays her pollen – gilded gold leaf Matisse cut-outs, that dance over the surface " – Aimée Ralfini
Any Londoners, please feel free to join me ... details below.
