"Ashes" by Guy Haddon Grant, at Dellasposa Fine Art
We are delighted to highlight the upcoming exhibition, Ashes, at Dellasposa Fine Art. This is the gallery’s first exhibition dedicated to one of Britain’s most important young sculptors, Guy Haddon Grant.
Comprising sculptures and works on paper, ‘Ashes’ attest to the skilful felicity with which Haddon Grant employs his materials, ideas, and form. His sculptures are highly compelling, elaborate masses of effervescent cloud formations, imbued with a sense of the ephemeral quality of time and space, emptiness and visibility, and ideas of presence.
Respected art critic, writer, curator and broadcaster Edward Lucie Smith has singled out Haddon Grant as an ‘inventive’ younger artist who is rekindling the idea of sculpture as poetic metaphor, describing his Cloud Totems series as “… a paradoxical attempt to give permanent forms to something constantly shifting and impalpable. [They have] a quality of being there and not-there – solid, yet suggesting evanescence. [They] demonstrate very convincingly that sculpture still has the power to move on. The theoreticians in power are, alas for their future reputations, being rapidly left behind by inventive young sculptors such as Guy Haddon-Grant.”
Founder of Dellasposa Fine Art Jessica McBride is delighted to invite fellow AWITA members to attend the exhibition.
The exhibition runs from Wednesday 7th to the Sunday 25th March, and takes place at 12 Piccadilly Arcade, St. James, SW1Y 6NH.
The private view will take place on Thursday 8th March, from 6.00pm through to 9.00pm. A curator’s talk will take place on Thursday 15th March, from 6.00pm through to 8.00pm.
