PHOTO LONDON x METRO: Tom Lovelace at Flowers Gallery
Ahead of Photo London 2018 we’re highlighting some of the work by our wonderful clients showing at Somerset House this May.
Dazzle Site Installation for ‘On the Heights’ – Tom Lovelace
Late last year the ‘On the Heights’ exhibition showcased new work by four artists; from Miriam Austin, Sam Belinfante, Tom Lovelace and Frances Scot. The work was produced when all four artists were invited to spend two weeks living and working at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) in April 2017.
The work explores the history, stories and landscape of the area, presenting a new dialogue between nature and experimental contemporary art practice for visitors to explore whilst extending YSP’s history of building relationships with and supporting young and emerging artists through the visiting artist programme.
Metro worked with Tom Lovelace producing C-Type prints for part of his installation which sensitively considers the extraordinary setting of YSP. Considering slippages in the manipulated landscape, Tom’s work prompts moments of uncertainty and doubt across various locations in the Park.
For this years Photo London, Flowers Gallery will be exhibiting some of Lovelace’s work from YSP as part of their fair program.
Tom Lovelace lives and works in London. He studied Photography at the Arts University Bournemouth, receiving First Class Honours before studying Art History at Goldsmiths College, University of London. Lovelace works at the intersection of photography, performance and sculpture. His practice is grounded in a reinvention of everyday objects, materials and processes.
In 2015, Lovelace was nominated for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize, Foam Paul Huf Award and the Prix Pictet Award. He has exhibited across Britain, Europe and the United States. Recent exhibitions include Groundwork (New Art Centre, Salisbury 2015), Mirage Valley (Lendi Projects, Switzerland 2015), To Camera (Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast 2015), This Way Up (Flowers Gallery, London 2015), Against Nature (London Art Fair, 2015), Project 05 (Contemporary Art Society, London 2014), Ristruttura (Project B Gallery, Milan 2012) and Uncommon Ground (Flowers Gallery, London 2012).
Established in 1970 by Angela Flowers, Flowers Gallery has two London exhibition spaces in Mayfair and Shoreditch along with a New York Gallery in Chelsea. Flowers Gallery currently represents 48 international artists working across a diverse range of media, with a dedicated photography space, established in 2008, recognised for its engagement with important socio-cultural, political and environmental themes.
