Exhibition: Handmade Painting by Lisa Milroy, April 7-29 2018 @ One Off Contemporary Gallery

Opening date: Saturday, April 7, 2018
Venue: One Off Contemporary Gallery
Time: Noon – 5 pm

Until April 29, 2018

Lisa Milroy is fascinated by material transformation and how one substance turns into another, whether it’s fabric into clothing, ink into words, clay into ceramics, or pigments into paintings. Milroy is also interested in imaginative transformation – how a painting turns into an experience that can touch or move the viewer.

Handmade: Paintings by Lisa Milroy brings together a selection of Milroy’s work from the past ten years to explore the subject of ‘looking and making’ and transformation. The paintings in the exhibition focus on the relation between the hand and eye, and the interplay between thinking, feeling and making. The exhibition features a range of work that reflects the diversity of Milroy’s approach to painting, including oil on canvas, interactive paintings and 3-D paintings.

Exhibition: The City, the Mountain and further North, Oct. 29 – Nov. 22 2016 @ One Off Contemporary Gallery

One Off Gallery proudly presents Timothy Brooke’s latest exhibition of oil paintings titled ‘The city, the mountain and further North’.

Opening: October 29, 2016
Venue: One Off Contemporary Gallery
Time: noon – 5 pm

The exhibition runs until: November 22, 2016

The show comprises some of Brooke’s classic subjects of cattle with dust, Mt Kenya and tribal women. He also depicts Aloes, low water in a river and Pelicans; a show stopper of a painting and something of a departure for the artist. Brooke’s famous economy of line becomes more and more prevalent.

Don’t miss Brooke’s spectacular rendition of our ‘vanishing Kenya’.

Black Angels have Red Wings by Ngene Mwaura, Jan. 30 – Feb. 23 2016 @ One Off Contemporary Gallery

Black Angels
Opening/Private Exhibition: Saturday, 30 January 2016
Time: Noon to 5pm
Until: February 23, 2016

One Off is delighted to start the exhibition schedule for the year, with the exhibition ‘Black Angels have Red Wings’ by Ngene Mwaura who currently resides in the United States. The works are a fascinating web of tiny marks, whilst the ‘whole’ carries a powerful message which is firmly rooted in Africa.

Ngene advises that you ‘Step back; there is a panorama of thoughts, ideas, love, and journeys. If you look closely you can hear what I have to say – get closer to what I’m saying. I am just a messenger travelling through uncharted terrain…’
