Young Masters Inspired by Old Masters to Exhibit at Cynthia Corbett Gallery
Hector de Gregorio, Sepulchre.
LONDON.- The forthcoming Young Masters exhibition, presented by The Cynthia Corbett Gallery, features emerging and newly established artists whose work is inspired by Old Masters. Through painting, photography, sculpture, and installation, each artist references an element of the established art historical canon, either through technique, imagery, or subject, whilst establishing an undeniably contemporary spin on highly revered paintings. The artists offer images that are familiar icons, often instantly recognizable, yet re-interpreted, distorted and somewhat uncanny.

Young Masters includes work by an international group of artists including Gemma Anderson, Lluis Barba, Charlotte Bracegirdle, Maisie Broadhead, Cecile Chong, Hector de Gregorio, Alice Evans, Ghost of a Dream, Kerry Jameson, Valerie Mary, David Roche, Constance Slaughter and Masaki Yada, all of which address various issues through their practices, often with irony, showing both reverence and irreverence to the Old Masters.

The work will be displayed simultaneously in Kensington and the East End throughout October. Young Masters starts on October 7 at the historic building of Sphinx Fine Art, where selected work will be hung alongside Old Masters pictures, creating a fascinating dialogue between artists several centuries apart. The exhibition then opens on October 15 until November 4 at The Old Truman Brewery in London’s East End. The initiative is the brainchild of The Cynthia Corbett Gallery, supported by corporate sponsors Trafigura, AXA and the Brake Group and curated by Constance Slaughter and Beth Colocci.

The Cynthia Corbett Gallery, an international contemporary art gallery, represents emerging and newly established artists. The Gallery Director, Cynthia Corbett, is a regular exhibitor and curator at international contemporary art fairs, and also runs an annual program of off-site exhibitions which take place in Cork Street, London W1 and the East End. corbettPROJECTS launched in 2004, focusing on curated solo and group installations, presenting an innovative program of events in a diverse array of media including photography, painting, sculpture, video and performance art.
