Ivory & Black Soho proudly presents "Around Us & Between Us," the first solo exhibition in London since 2005 by the Los Angeles based artist Geoff McFetridge – A multidisciplinary artist without creative boundaries who’s life work ranges from poetry to installation, painting to graphic design and many other practices in between. For his “Around Us & Between Us” exhibition, Geoff has created a series of 10 new acrylic paintings on canvas on his distinctive and reductive style, giving each different subject the same treatment and refinery. In the artist’s own words:

 

"Images are central to my painting. The images are varied, while my treatment of them is very consistent. The imagery is refined to a point of anonymous functionality. The paintings are meant to feel as if they were pulled directly from the lexicon.I paint some things because they are things that I have seen, but more importantly, I believe they are things that the viewer has seen. I am painting from life, but not life purely found in the landscape, but the also psychological, mediated, and transcendental world that infects our consciousness."
