PAST EXHIBITION: Gurley 8 November – 8 December ← Back to the portfolio
Exhibition Dates 8 November – 8 December
Private View 7 November 6pm – 9pm
We are very excited to be welcoming back Gurley to Anise Gallery this November.
As New York hits the art world headlines, Gurley’s latest series of work uses this remarkable city as her focus and inspiration. As art and popular culture collide in Manhattan, mass entertainment takes centre stage in Gurley’s playful canvases. Her screenprints, highly skilled but seemingly chaotic, become snapshots of a personal experience now shared.
Glimpses of the familiar lay hidden beneath the built up layers of the canvas – Hershey’s, Coca-Cola, yellow cabs, diners – they are all there, drawing you further in as you spot them one by one.
Alongside the bold and striking canvases, visitors are invited to shop for their art, as Gurley’s trademark screenprints hang off hangers – the temptation to just ‘have a quick flick through’ reminiscent of many a shopping day.
Described by Agyness Deyn as one of her favourite artists, Gurley’s work distinguishes itself with its uniqueness and is considered to be highly collectable. ‘New York and the World of a Million Mickeys’ will showcase entirely new, never seen before works.
