EXCEPTIONAL artists (Jerry Inscoe absent) with Remi Rough

EXCEPTIONAL is a group exhibition that connects with a shared minimalist sensibility use of traditional practices but very individual approaches. Employing a range of methods, each artist has developed a unique way of working with processes such as erasure, visual systems or spatial investigation. Their practices are often labour intensive, contrary to the reductive nature of the final work.

EXCEPTIONAL features artwork from:

  • Jerry Inscoe (USA)
  • Augustine Kofie (USA)
  • Zanny Mellor (UK)
  • Martina Merlini (ITALY)
  • Steve More (UK)
  • Charley Peters (UK)
  • Livvy Turner (UK)

EXCEPTIONAL is curated by Remi Rough & Ruth Wilkinson (Scream London).

Remi Rough | #RoughSketches Volume 01 Book Launch

April 19, 2016

Remi Rough | #RoughSketches

Book Launch Event: Thursday 28th April | 6 - 8pm

Scream London is delighted to announce the release of Remi Rough’s new publication, #RoughSketches, with a launch event at the gallery where the artist will be signing and customising copies of the book and exhibiting a collection of new works on paper.

Join us between 6 - 8pm on Thursday 28th April when Remi will be return to the UK from his latest commission to officially launch #RoughSketches Volume 01 at the Scream London gallery. All copies of his book purchased on the evening will be signed by the artist and customised with a uniquue hand-drawn Remi Rough doodle.

Remi Rough's works are often described as ‘painting visual haikus’. A respected graffiti artist, London-based Remi Rough has also played a significant part in the development of ‘abstract graffiti’, a term that seems far too clinical to describe the accomplishments of his artwork, which has always been about the interplay of colour and shape.

Now his creations have made their way from wall to paper in the form of his new book. #RoughSketches is a collection of Remi’s drawings and sketches from a diverse catalogue of work spanning the last two decades (1996 - 2015). The book demonstrates the gradual progression in Remi’s works from graffiti lettering to the abstractions they have now become, with a focus on the interplay between geometry, line and space.

Most of the featured sketches are in black and white, as Remi often chooses to strip away all the unnecessary peripheral parts of graffiti while drawing and sketching in order to retain a focus on the development of style; it is this aspect of drawing process that enables him to develop his ideas for his paintings and large-scale mural projects.

Exceptional - exhibition and private view

March 22, 2016
Exceptional exhibition & private view at Scream London
Zanny Mellor - Within Reach Diptych

EXCEPTIONAL (Adjective: unusual, not typical.)

14th April - 20th May 2016 at Scream London
Private View Thursday 14th April | 6 - 8pm
A group exhibition featuring:
  • Jerry Inscoe (USA)
  • Augustine Kofie (USA)
  • Zanny Mellor (UK)
  • Martina Merlini (ITALY)
  • Steve More (UK)
  • Charley Peters (UK)
  • Livvy Turner (UK)

 

Scream London present ‘Exceptional', a group exhibition that connects seven artists with disparate working practices who share a minimalist sensibility. Employing a range of different methods, each artist has developed a unique way of working with processes such as erasure, visual systems or spatial investigation. Their practices are often labour intensive, contrary to the reductive nature of the final work.

The work presented in ‘Exceptional’ offers a contemporary vision of the traditions of abstraction. Some of the artists draw inspiration from the lines of urban architecture, some from surface and texture, and others from vintage system grids. Their work, however, avoids a nostalgic view of modernism and sits confidently within a post-digital landscape. The distinctive journeys that each of the artists go on in their daily routines in the studio are what brings them together in this exhibition.

‘Exceptional' because nobody else makes work in the same way that these seven artists do. ‘Exceptional' because the work is unique, not printed or manufactured but considered, built, erased, layered, constructed and painted by their own hands, using their own inimitable processes with incomparable results.

This exhibition is curated by Remi Rough and Ruth Wilkinson.

Remi Rough 'HOME' - Private View Recap

October 09, 2015

Last Wednesday we've had a great pleasure to host a private view of Remi Rough's most recent exhibition 'Home'. The show is his first exhibition in London since 2009 and the great attendance proved that he has been missed in the capital! Everybody was impressed with Remi's latest body of works and had an amazing time.

This collection of complex works on wood, handmade paper and canvas invites you to share the artist’s world of London as Home. ‘Home’ plays with themes such as balance and imbalance, tension and geometric calculations - referencing Russian Constructionists such as Theo van Doesburg and Kazimir Malevich. In the window hangs a large intricate geometric composition on found wood that has been varnished in gloss. We see two pieces on wood in total, one in the window and one smaller version named after a Russian Sniper Rifle.

The show sees eighteen pieces on the left wall made with ink, spray paint and graphite - all on organic hand made paper. At the back of the gallery as well as at the front we have two works on canvas that has both developed whilst inspiration has struck during work on the larger series on paper. Two works over two weeks, called incision 1 and 2 are ‘cut outs’ throwing shadows on each other in a flood of light.

On the wall to the right we have a collection of fourteen smaller pieces again on organic hand made paper. These are marginal sketches towards bigger pictures and are the closest we get to Remis heritage of Graffiti Writing. Standing in the middle of the room your eyes will undoubtedly rest on Remis signature pink running through the gallery walls like a thrill of danger, landing elegantly at home in a massive wall installation at the back of the gallery.

'Home' - a new exhibition by Remi Rough

September 17, 2015


HOME

A new exhibition by Remi Rough
8th October  -  3rd November 2015
 

‘Home’ is Remi Rough’s first London solo exhibition of new works since 2009! 

Home alludes to London itself. Remi Rough was born in South East London in 1971 and has lived and worked in the city ever since. He is a leading figure within the new movement of urban modernist painters (Graffuturists / Graffuturism) - Remi has adopted the theories and practices of the modern masters that preceded him. 

 

This new body of work explores the relationship of balance, tension and colour with geometric theory. The many formative years spent as a young practitioner of ‘graffiti style writing' have referenced these forward thinking abstractions. The letterforms and wild styles have progressed into a mature language of ‘Suprematism’. 

The works are precisely designed geometric compositions that contrast heavily with their organic surfaces such as hand made papers or wood assemblages. They have more in common with the Russian constructivists of the 19th Century as they do the graffiti writers of the 20th Century.  The paintings are concerned with mathematical questions of shape, size, relative position of figures and forms, which is fundamental in current human obsession with practical science.

 

"Remi Rough continues to challenge the boundaries of contemporary painting as he traverses between the collected history of art and todays urban lexicon. Thematically he continues to explore associations between Suprematism concepts, Abstract Expressionism and Graffiti art, which in practice and theory they become ever present. This amalgamation yields a new type of modernist painting, one that reflects his passion for the aforementioned but also his desire re-imagine it all for todays world."- Carlos Mare
