Fiumano Clase’s exhibition Landscape and the Self is a solo show of new works by the Hungarian painter Dénes Maróti. In his landscapes he seeks to evoke specific moods and the sense of being somewhere, exploring how places change over time.
His paintings draw on memory and self-expression, incorporating classical imagery and traditional practices. Often he makes specific reference to traditional themes in the titles of his work, as in his Judgement of Paris.
The show runs from June 8-July 8. Fiumano Clase, which is near Russell Square, opened last year and works collaboratively with artists to help them develop.
Put it out there
Meanwhile, Just putting it out there (May 31-June 23) at James Freeman Gallery features two artists also concerned with landscape, memory and atmosphere.
Andrew McIntosh and Morwenna Morrison both depict enigmatic settings with mythological elements. The former explores unexplained light phenomena in the Scottish wilderness while the latter combines classical landscapes with old photographs.
Founded in 2003, the Islington gallery focuses on what it dubs ‘contemporary classicism’, featuring artists who combine an interest in current tendencies with art historical references.
