Halcyon Gallery, Harrods presents a selection of Andy Warhol’s Ads series, originally created in 1985. In this series, Warhol presents each image as a noticeable appropriation of corporate logos and further as cultural products and commodities. These unique screenprints highlight Warhol’s affinity and talent for elevating the consumer culture, advertising and branding.
Also commenting on seriality and contemporary society, Mauro Perucchetti’s life-size Jelly Baby Family stands as a playful yet ever-present reminder of the unsubstantiated limits of excess. These towering and colourful figures have seen permanent and temporary public placements at London’s Marble Arch, the Gardens of The Louvre, Paris and recently in Singapore.
Lorenzo Quinn continues to showcase several new works from his recent solo exhibition, Full Circle. Quinn’s historic connection to the Masters of the past, through his technique and execution, is undeniable.
Russian sculptor, Dashi Namdakov conveys his personal practice and understanding of Mongolian and Buddhist culture, including religious beliefs and mythology through his sculpture. Deeply rooted in shamanism and spirituality, Namdakov also creates elaborate works on canvas, hand-crafted jewellery and miniature sculptures with precious gems and stones.
Several works by each artist are currently on display, including Master editions by Joan Miró, Camille Pissarro, Marc Chagall, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Henri Matisse and Salvador Dali.
