Armen Eloyan at Timothy Taylor: Garden

SEEN was very taken with the huge paintings on display at Timothy Taylor’s Mayfair gallery. The huge space is well suited to Eloyan’s latest work ‘Garden’; a concept that contains and displays large-scale canvases and bronze sculptures.

Whatever the medium in which he works, Eloyan’s imagery is playful and cartoonish, though often with grim undertones. He draws on pop-culture references, which, though instantly recognisable as characters from tale and folklore, seem to hint at a deeper mystery.

A wolf and a bearded gnome-like man converse outside an idyllic cottage in one untitled picture. Are they friends or plotting a sinister act? The more everyday has its place here, like the sculpture Egg, which has an egg balancing precariously in its cup, implying that existential concerns are at play here, though Eloyan pulls back from taking himself too seriously. Perhaps he’s leaving that to the viewer’s response.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
