Boldness is sometimes rewarded
Rebecca Hossacks are amongst the few galleries [from the late Eighties] which have not only survived but thrived, and they have done so because they do not depend on the ephemeral thrills of trendy art. The Economist
The Gallery exhibits across the broad spectrum of Western Contemporary Art, while determinedly moving against some of the dominant currents of the modern art scene. Through the work of painters such as Alasdair Wallace, Helen Flockhart, David Whitaker David Bromley, print makers John Dilnot and Charlotte Cory, embroiderers Kate Jenkins and Karen Nicol, the gallery celebrates and promotes inclusiveness, individuality, spirit, innovation, technical accomplishment and beauty.
PETER CLARK HOT DOG EXHIBITION
10 May 4 June 2011
The gallery opened with an exhibition of new collage works by the celebrated British artist Peter Clark.
Clark is a collagist of genius. Over the past decade he has built up an international reputation with his extraordinary creations arresting images full of wit, truth, beauty and, even, pathos, fashioned from found vintage paper and other collected ephemera. He has exhibited in London, Milan, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Toronto. A book dedicated to his art, Paperwork (London, 2009), is a best-seller.
He is also something of a Manhattan favourite already, having several important works on view in the Crosby Street Hotel in SoHo.
