13th July – 23rd September 2012
Art dealing duo Coates and Scarry bring the works of David La Chapelle, ROA, Kate McGwire and Angela Singer amongst others to the Royal West of England Academy this Autumn. Showing viewers a world where science dominates over nature and where nature morphs into unnatural states – sometimes a result of our own doing – Coates and Scarry’s selection of artists will show us human beings’ potential to tantalise and twist nature, showing its more warped side.
A hyper-realistic aesthetic with overt social messages will come courtesy of La Chapelle, whilst Fulvio de Piazza creates anthropomorphised paintings landscapes and Luis Sanchez captures the grim and the sublime, and the realistic and idealistic in his work.
The full list of artists showing are: David LaChapelle, Luis Sanchez, Angela Singer, Geza Szollosi, Kate MccGwire, Nick Bright, Meryl Donahue, Natalie Shau, Patrick Haines, Karen Akester, Beth Carter, Jessica Joslin, Troy Abbott, Chantal Powell, Dean Melbourne, Susie MacMurray, Christopher Russell, Angela Lizon, Rose Sanderson, Pitch Tangpun, Nicole Etienne, Erik Sandberg, Marco Mazzoni, Deedee Cheriel, Heiko Muller, Corine Perier, Luis Sanchez, Christian rex Van Minnen, Scott G Brooks, Fulivio de Piazza, Laura Ball, Lyndsey Carr, Rupert Bathhurst, Ryan McLennan, ROA, CASE, Pure Evil.
