State of Art: 5 art exhibitions to see this September 2017

Life, Love and Death

This solo exhibition by Australian artist Richard Lewer showcases oil paintings on epoxy coated steel alongside three animations. The paintings are inspired by old photographs depicting everyday family life and momentous events such as celebrations and funerals. There is something unsettling about them, thanks to the deliberately blurred images and muted colours.

Vibrant splashes of colour are recurring elements in US artist Jeffrey Kroll’s artworks, which range from photography to paintings. Esmerelda (pictured), for instance, is an eye-catching mishmash of red and purple hues disrupted by bursts of light and dark blue. Kroll’s show is held in support of Save the Children, a non-governmental organisation that champions children’s rights.
