Open Gallery - London - U.K.

Open is a London gallery dedicated to the video painting: a new form of video art developed by the Artscape Project.
The origins of the Artscape Project can be found in 2001 when the first video paintings were shot by Hilary Lawson, a philosopher and documentary film maker, in an attempt to escape the limitations of the traditional video narrative. Subsequently, a collective of artists, including William Raban, Sanchita Islam, Nina Danino, Tina Keane, and Isabelle Inghilieri, was formed to develop the video painting medium.
Video paintings are filmed in a single take with a stationary camera. They contain no edits or subsequent manipulation. Video paintings show the world in real time. The video painting is non-narrative. There is no dialogue, no sound. In contrast to the film and video tradition which has been dominated by the provision of meaning and understanding, the video painting aims to escape our cultural and perceptual closures, freeing the viewer to play in the openness of the image.
Lawson's philosophical approach and aesthetic theory led him to seek ways to explore being independent of the cultural accident of our particular understanding. It is the abandonment of narrative which enables the video painting to explore the character of experience. Through the video painting the artist leads us into a way of seeing which has no determinable meaning but which carries a unique emotional hue. Video paintings challenge us to let go of the endless search for closure or understanding and approach instead what it is to experience the world.
In 2003, technology was developed that enables video paintings to be combined into collections in such a manner that they play in intelligent sequences, according to criteria determined by the artists. Unlike traditional video art, the collections are thereby freed from the necessity to loop, however long they play. Thereby overcoming the issue of repetition which has constrained the potential of video art.
Since 2004 a growing number of artists have become involved in the project, exploring the potential of the video painting and the collections that can be built from them.
Open Gallery launched in 2005 and the first public installation took place in the UK later in the same year. Exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (2006), the Sketch gallery (2007), the Hayward Gallery (2007), the Institue of Art and Ideas (2008&9) and Shunt Vaults (2009) have followed.

An expansion from the Paris-based gallery and a major addition to the London art market, Orel Art is primarily devoted to bringing contemporary Russian art to a wider western audience.

Daughter of an artist and former student of the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture, Orel’s experimental ethos is informed by her direct experience of the challenges faced by young artists. Orel is acutely aware of the pre-eminence of visual culture in contemporary society and strives to promote artists who address current affairs and globalized problems with exceptional aesthetic prowess.
Looking beyond internal curatorial projects, Ilona Orel has fostered successful collaborations with established European museums, including the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, the State Russian Museum in St Petersburg and MACRO in Rome. Her stable of artists has entered the prestigious collections of the Pompidou Centre in Paris, the Guggenheim Museum in New York and Bilbao, the Martin-Gropius Bau in Berlin and the MAK Museum in Vienna, amongst others.

Peter Nahum at The Leicester Galleries - London - UK

Peter Nahum At The Leicester Galleries specialises in 19th and 20th century paintings, drawings and sculpture; in particular quality Victorian paintings, the Pre-Raphaelites, The Liverpool and Birmingham Schools including artists working in egg tempera, the New Sculpture and the European Symbolists.
The Leicester Galleries holds a wide variety of Modern British works including works by David Bomberg, Cecil Collins, Merlyn Evans, Terry Frost, Barbara Hepworth, Augustus John, Paul Nash, Ben Nicholson, Victor Pasmore, Michael Rothenstein and John Tunnard.
Also works by international artists including works by Julio González, Man Ray, Eugène Jansson, Eugene Carriere, Leon Frederic, Carlos Schawbe, Antonio Mancini and Jan Wynants
Peter Nahum At The Leicester Galleries was formed in 1984 on the experience of seventeen years at Sotheby's. The gallery has a simple buying policy, based on two questions: Is the work good enough? and Can we afford it?
We also sell on behalf of private collectors.
The policy of the gallery is to buy top, museum quality works of art for what we consider to be, taking the market overall into consideration, a reasonable price. (The price we pay may be a world record for the artist). In general, this means that we buy against the market, over a wide range of dates and styles, but always looking for more than the merely decorative.
Since becoming a member of the Art and Antiques market in 1966, Peter Nahum has seen many recessions and subsequent booms. The one message that clearly comes through is that top quality artworks, bought at the right price, never let their owner down. The price will, of course, be affected by market changes but, unlike fashionable works bought at the top of a boom market, the prices of correctly purchased paintings do not suffer extreme downward swings.
The policy of this gallery is to buy for the long term and, if necessary, to hold our works of art for many years. In this respect we act like our collectors. We believe that works of art will retain and increase their values, as quality becomes rarer. From a collector’s point of view, the greatest sin this gallery has perpetuated is to sell a good number of works to Museums and Art Galleries and therefore to remove them from their reach forever.
