Michael J Duke: Life After Coffee
Michael says of his exhibition: “I do admit that coffee is more than just a drink to me. I enjoy reading up on the history of the drink as well as collecting cups with logos from various cafés I have visited on my travels. During each ‘coffee stop’, I like to try to capture the locality outside by taking a photograph through the café or restaurant window.”

Peter Herbert: 38 Green Carnations
38 Green Carnations provides a juxtaposition of two aspects of Oscar Wilde’s life. The early privileged family and successful background of one of the world’s most brilliant and witty writers is reflected by a portrait of the artist as a younger man, presented against fabric by the fashionable Victorian designer of the time William Morris. Photographs taken inside Reading Gaol are displayed on panels of bars as a stark indicator of the incarceration of Wilde in Reading Gaol in 1895 when tragedy ruined his life, family and career. The photographs explore the gaol for hints of its ethereal nature and reminder that Wilde was part of its system.

Popi Tsoukatou: Consanguinity (Athens)
Popi Tsoukatou’s new body of works unfolds the variations in meaning of the Latin word ‘consanguinity’, which is either defined on etymological level as blood relationship or metaphorically as an inherent correlation.
Tsoukatou appropriates photographs of both her familial and broader circle, it being either kith and kin or friends of decades past, mainly during the 1950s and ‘60s, intervening with color at places in order to create an unabridged memory lane. This way, the references in her works reflect the archetypical ascendancies of descent, upbringing, history, geography, place, caste and personal culture, which invoke the collective memory. ~ Stavros Kavallaris

Elizabeth Brown in Seeing Red
The Seeing Red exhibition fills the two floors at Espacio Gallery with glowing colour. Whether scarlet, crimson, maroon, vermilion, berry, ruby, rose, burgundy, carmine, brick, or cerise – red is both satisfying and exciting. The strong feelings suggested by the colour red – passionate love, blood and anger – are always stimulating!
Artists understand colour and use it to great advantage – as Matisse famously said: “A thimble full of red is redder than a bucketful.” The 18 colourist artists in the exhibition celebrate the many ways to see the colour red. Red can boost your energy, it exudes confidence and is life-affirming, so this show is a great place to visit in the middle of a dreary London winter.
With a focus on painting, the artwork in this group show also includes some printmaking, collage, drawing and photography.

Daniel Keys in Feminine / Masculine (Budapest)
It often seems that everything has been both said and photographed about this subject, and yet it is not possible to ignore the persistence of Feminine / Masculine in our visual culture. What is it that we can still value and possibly revive from the rich history of photography; are there any novel ways left to approach this subject with a fresh critical eye?
