Happy Birthday Wim Wenders! 📷 We're celebrating with this 1973 limited edition, 'Self Portrait with Mickey Mouse T-shirt'. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wim Wenders is one of the most important figures to emerge from the New German Cinema period of the 1970s. Alongside directing atmospheric auteur films the artist works with the medium of photography, and his poignant images of desolate landscapes engage themes including memory, time, loss, nostalgia and movement. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #WimWenders #BlainSouthern #SelfPortrait #Photography #Film #FilmPhotography #Art #Artist #Artwork #Photographer #Selfie #MirrorSelfie #Portrait #ContemporaryArt #MickeyMouse #Disney #Gallery #ArtOfTheDay #ArtistBirthday #BornOnThisDay #HappyBirthday #HBD #ArtWorld

'Trade Winds: Yinka Shonibare at Norval Foundation' closes today in Cape Town. Swipe left for 'Butterfly Kid (boy) IV' (2019). 🦋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 'Butterfly Kid (Girl) IV' (2017) was featured in the Norval Foundation exhibition, alongside 'The African Library' (2018), a detail of which can be seen in the first image. 'The African Library' is the most recent iteration of Shonibare's library series venerating first or second generation immigrants who have shaped a country’s social, political or cultural life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Comprised of approximately 4,900 books covered in Dutch Wax fabric, 'The African Library' broadens the initial concept of the artwork by celebrating the contributions that immigrant and non-immigrant Africans have made to the continent’s independence movements, science, arts and technological innovation, by emblazoning their names in gold on the spines of key books. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ First photo via @jose_themba ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @shonibarestudio @norvalfoundation #BlainSouthern #YinkaShonibare #Art #Artist #ContemporaryArt #DutchWaxPrint #Textiles #TextileArt #Library #Books #Bookworm #Culture #Capetown #BritishArt #AfricanArt #Sculpture #Installation #Gallery #Exhibition #Museum #Art #Artist #Artwork #ArtOfTheDay #Knowledge

Wishing a very happy birthday to Yinka Shonibare CBE! 🎂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yinka Shonibare CBE moved to Lagos, Nigeria from his birthplace of London at the age of three. He returned to London to study Fine Art at Byam Shaw College of Art (now Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design) and then at Goldsmiths College, where he received his MFA, graduating as part of the ‘Young British Artists’ generation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Over the past decade, Shonibare has become well known for his exploration of colonialism and post-colonialism within the contemporary context of globalisation. His work explores these issues, alongside those of race and class, through the media of painting, sculpture, photography and, more recently, film and performance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pictured: 'End of Empire' (2016) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @shonibarestudio @macval.musee #BlainSouthern #YinkaShonibare #Art #Artist #Artwork #Installation #Sculpture #Migration #Colonialism #Museum #Exhibition #ContemporaryArt #Gallery #ArtOfTheDay #BornOnThisDay #OnThisDay

Blain|Southern New York is delighted to announce 'L’appel du vide', an exhibition of new work by Rachel Howard, opening Friday 6 September. Private View: Thursday 5 September, 6-8pm. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The artist’s first exhibition at the New York gallery, 'L’appel du vide' will include painting, sculpture and works on paper. The title of the exhibition translates as ‘the call of the void’: it is the voice that tells you to leap off the edge, the curious ‘what if?’ call of self-destruction that’s ultimately ignored. It is this slippage between control and chaos that fascinates Howard. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pictured: 'Missive to the Mad' (2019) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @rachelhowardart #RachelHoward #LAppelDuVide #BlainSouthern #NewYork #ArtInNewYork #Exhibition #ContemporaryArt #ContemporaryPainting #Painting #Abstract #AbstractArt #Art #Artist #Artwork #Gallery #ArtOfTheDay

Happy birthday to Sean Scully! We are celebrating with this image from the artist's 2018 exhibition at Luis Barragán’s iconic modernist landmark, Cuadra San Cristóbal in Mexico City. Shown here is 'Air' (2018), made of recinto, marble and cantera. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Born in Dublin in 1945, Scully grew up in London and settled in America in the mid-1970s. One of the most admired abstract painters working today, his work draws on the traditions of European painting, invigorated with the distinct character of American abstraction. In a career spanning six decades – and counting – Scully has risen to international prominence, with work held in major public collections worldwide. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @seanscullystudio #SeanScully #BlainSouthern #MexicoCity #CuadroSanCristobal #Sculpture #Architecture #Contemporary #Reflection #Pool #Pink #Light #Design #ContemporaryArt #Art #Artist #Artwork #Gallery #ArtOfTheDay

Cheers to the weekend 🥂 'Enrique Martínez Celaya: The Mariner's Meadow' closes two weeks from tomorrow. Don't miss this exhibition on view at Blain|Southern London. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #TheMarinersMeadow unveils sixteen previously unseen paintings, in which Martínez Celaya focuses on the sea and its relation to the human subconscious. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Despite leaving the Caribbean in 1982, the sea has remained with the artist as a ‘stowaway’. ‘The sea’, he writes, ‘was the end of all paths and the edge of all comings and goings, the reference point for conversations, and the all-absorbing witness of a history of colonialism and longing.’ In these paintings, the artist portrays the sea in its various moods: at times passive, at others exerting significant impact on the protagonists' journeys. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @studioenriquemartinezcelaya #EnriqueMartinezCelaya #EnriqueMartínezCelaya #Painting #ContemporaryArt #ContemporaryPainting #Exhibition #London #PrivateView #Art #Artist #Artwork #Portrait #Landscape #ArtShow #ArtOfTheDay

Wishing we were here right now 😎 An outdoor exhibition of Sir Anthony Cragg's sculptures is on view throughout the Summer at the iconic Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The monumental sculptures in this exhibition form part of two larger groups of work, 'Early Forms' and 'Rational Beings', which Cragg has been developing since the 1990s. The works derive their forms from the contours of gestural drawings, which Cragg then translates into the third dimension using thick, circular or oval discs which are superimposed (often vertically), glued together and then covered with a skin. The underlying structure of these sculptures gives their skin the tension of a membrane, reflecting the basic structures of many organisms, organs, plants and animals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @hotelducapedenroc #HotelDuCap #AnthonyCragg #TonyCragg #BlainSouthern #ContemporaryArt #Sculpture #Art #Artist #OutdoorSculpture #Abstract #AbstractArt #Exhibition #Gallery #ArtOfTheDay #EdenRoc

Living with great art: Lynn Chadwick at Lypiatt Park. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Chadwick (1914-2003) was one of the leading British sculptors of post-war Britain, known primarily for metal works often inspired by the human form and the natural world, but which also at times seemed close to abstraction. Lynn Chadwick’s career as a sculptor spanned almost 50 years, but he did not begin until he was nearly 32. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When Chadwick was awarded the coveted prize for sculpture in the 1956 Venice Biennale, it was the sensation of the show and he became the youngest sculptor ever to do so. The artist went on to secure an international reputation, and in 1964 was appointed Commander, Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the New Year Honours List. His sculptures and drawings are in the collections of many of the great museums of the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pictured: 'High Wind IV', 1995, Bronze, 175 x 67 x 120 cm.

This week in art fairs: Spotlight on Masterpiece. Blain|Southern will be presenting two dedicated booths at the fair, one focusing on Bosco Sodi and the other on Anthony Caro. Shown here are an untitled 2018 relief painting and an untitled 2016 sculpture made of ceramic glaze over volcanic rock, both of which will be on view in booth D24. The fair will take place from 27 June - 3 July. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sodi (b.1970 Mexico City, Mexico) is known for his richly textured, vividly colored large-scale paintings. The artist has discovered an emotive power within the essential crudeness of the materials that he uses to execute his paintings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He leaves many of his artworks untitled, with the intention of removing any predisposition or connection beyond the work’s immediate existence. The work itself becomes a memory and a relic symbolic of the artist’s conversation with the raw material that brought the painting into creation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @studioboscosodi @masterpiecelondon #BoscoSodi #MasterpieceFair #MasterpieceLondon #Artfair #ContemporaryArt #ContemporaryPainting #ReliefPainting #Sculpture #Volcanic #Art #Artist #Artwork #Painting #Gallery #ArtOfTheDay

This week in art fairs: Spotlight on Masterpiece. Blain|Southern will be presenting two dedicated booths at the fair, one focusing on Anthony Caro and the other on Bosco Sodi. Here is Caro's 'Table Piece CCLXXVI' (1975/1976), which will be one of the works on view in booth C3. The fair will take place from 27 June - 3 July. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1966, after a rapid rise to prominence with large-scale, abstract works constructed from steel, Anthony Caro began making small sculptures which became a long-running discrete series, known as ‘table pieces’. He went on to make several hundred. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Caro’s goal was to make small sculptures whose modest dimensions would be intrinsic to their final form. Often their component parts include handles, tools, objects or implements whose size is recognizably intended to fit into the human hand. However abstract Caro’s sculpture may appear to be, it is always related to the human body for, as he stated in a lecture on Degas, ‘all sculpture takes its bearings from the fact that we live inside our bodies and that our size and stretch and strength is what it is.’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @masterpiecelondon #MasterpieceFair #BlainSouthern #AnthonyCaro #ContemporaryArt #ArtFair #Art #Artist #Artwork #Sculpture #Abstract #AbstractArt #Gallery #ArtOfTheDay
