Lazarides Rathbone was established to show art from a bunch of talented mavericks and outsiders. It seemed to work … so we carried on in the same vein. Some of the names have changed, but the ethos remains. We’re not bound by any definitions – as long as we like the art then it gets an exhibition.
What started out as a halfway house for the urban art movement has grown into an internationally recognised gallery. Admittedly this has surprised us as much as it has anyone else. Our aim is to make each show an interesting experience, and remind everyone that art is there to be enjoyed
More colour is definitely needed to make it through the week… Maser provides the perfect inspiration for your mid-week slump with his bold graphics, geometric elements and loose brush strokes. This particular piece was shown in the artist’s solo-exhibition, Orbiting on the Periphery. The body of work continues Masers’ exploration into the philosopher and mathematician Thales of Miletus’s theory; “mens sana in corpore sano”, in which physical health and conditions are recognised as an essential part of psychological equilibrium. | This piece is titled Orbiting 18 by Maser, Acrylic and latex paint on wooden assemblage, 92cm x 76 cm, 2016 #Maser #Lazinc #acrylic #art #gallery
Brazil seems to be full of talented artists at the moment including rising young artist, Finok. Influenced by Brazil’s diverse blend of cultures and heritage the artist began creating his own characters that integrated all the different cultures that he saw. 2016 saw his debut UK solo-exhibition with Lazarides where he allowed visitors to enter his world and see miscegenation in its purest form. | This piece is titled Antropofagia Imparcial, Acrylic on canvas, 160 cm x 120 cm, 2016 #Finok #Lazinc #art #gallery #artwork
Mondays always need a bit of colour, so we thought we’d show you a piece by Todd James. The vivid hyper-coloured piece was seen in Fantasy Island, a solo-exhibition by the artist in Lazarides Rathbone. The large-scale body of work that featured in the show continued the artist’s exploration of current sociopolitical affairs. The paintings depicted a fantastical reality which included armed soldiers balancing cups of tea in armchairs and sexualised women brandishing heavy weaponry. | This piece is titled No Time Like Lunchtime by Todd James, Acrylic on canvas, 102 cm x 122 cm, 2015 #toddjames #acrylic #art #lazinc #artwork
