Antlers Gallery Pop-up Exhibition in Clerkenwell

Bristol's Antlers Gallery is a nomadic gallery, with no fixed location.  In late March they're coming on tour to London - catch them while you can!  (Picture above shows The Fruits of Sacrifice by Tim Lane)

"Antlers Gallery is one of the most recent and intriguing editions to Bristol’s art scene. Launched in 2010 they represent an emerging group of artists who bring contemporary interpretations to traditional methods and subjects. Central to all the artist’s work are skill-based practices, good draughtsmanship with a particular focus on drawing and painting. Works with strong narrative elements, pieces that evoke a sense of the uncanny and references to the natural world also unify the artists. For the first time this rapidly developing Bristol scene will be on show in London, with the Antlers curated show – ‘Other Nature’.  
‘Other Nature’ brings contemporary interpretations to traditional genres through re-examining and manipulating the ideas of Natural History, Landscape and Narrative painting. The works have all been produced in the urban environment and create a tension between the natural and the man-made. Within many of the works animal and natural forms are positioned as the ‘other’ in turn redefining the human position. The otherness of nature juxtaposed with the human familiarity creates an un-easy, uncanny or otherworldly aesthetic. 
ARTISTS EXHIBITING:  Abigail Reed, Alexander Korzer-Robinson, Amy Timms, Anouk Mercier, Ellie Coates, Helen Jones, Max Naylor, Rose Sanderson, Tim Lane"
