Bradley Thedodore | Second Coming | Maddox Gallery

SECOND COMING is the much anticipated second London solo exhibition from Bradley Theodore, the street artist turned art star who deals in a colour-soaked exploration of the human condition with a verve that has set the art world on fire. His 2016 sell-out show at Maddox Gallery was a major success and now Theodore returns to the UK with a vibrant and evocative new series of works featuring groundbreaking virtual reality creations, previously unseen sculpture and large scale paintings alongside the artist’s famed pop pieces.

Haunted Beauty | Dissenters’ Gallery | The Week

‘Inspired by the grand Pere-Lachaises in Paris, Kensal Green Cemetery was the first of the “Magnificent Seven” garden-style cemeteries created in London in the Victorian era. The final resting place of more than 700 notable personalities, including civil engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, mathematician Charles Babbage and numerous fellows of the Royal Society, it is also remarkable for the often unsung women buried here, among them Lord Byron’s wife, Anne Isabella, and Jane Wilde, the mother of playwright Oscar.’ – The Week

‘A historic chapel is being reopened as a gallery dedicated to women artists

A series of shows will take place in the Dissenters’ Chapel at Kensal Green Cemetery over the next year with the first featuring work by painter Nadine Talalla inspired by women buried in the graveyard.

The chapel dates from 1834 and the cemetery is also home to the graves of fashion designer Ossie Clark, playwright Harold Pinter and engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Curator Vicky Caplin, who got the idea when she set up a temporary show of war photography at the chapel four years ago, said it was perfect for “an artist who is sensitive to their surroundings”.’ – Robert Dex, London Evening Standard

‘Jazz Festival is a thick book of black-and-white photographs by Jim Marshall, one of the best-known American rock photographers, who first became famous by taking pictures of jazz musicians.

The Artist’s Eye: Robi Walters on ‘I Project You’

‘I Project You was conceived straight after my last two shows at Maddox Gallery and Somerset House. I was exhausted. It was a week I’d originally earmarked for rest, but the moment I sat still, some of the energy from ‘365’, my drawing a day project kicked in and I wanted to get moving and making. I decided to set myself the challenge of creating and putting on an independent solo show in just four weeks. I had a month to produce the work and to turn my studio into an impromptu gallery space. I wanted to move away from the structure and confinements of gallery shows and do something new, that I was in complete control of.’ – Robi Walters

Time becomes non-essential because you want to hear more about the parties that ended with broken hearts or disbandment. You want to know what life is like inside the world of sports while the crowd sits outside. To his friends- and he has many- he is “Z.” – Bronwen Latimer, The Washington post

The opening is something of a social event. Baldwin’s work has been bought and admired by such celebrities as Elton John, Damien Hirst and Sadie Frost and the paparazzi were in close attendance.’ – Bob Chaundy, The Huffington Post

Dan Baldwin: Under the Influence

INTERVIEW WITH DAN BALDWIN:

‘Known for his multifaceted and ethereal work, British artist Dan Baldwin is among the most celebrated contemporary artists working in the UK today. Not only is his estimable talent respected by his contemporaries, his collectors include Damien Hirst, Gilbert &  George and Sir Peter Blake. This month, Baldwin unveils his fifteenth solo show, UNDER THE INFLUENCE, at Maddox Gallery, Mayfair. The astounding compilation of mixed media paintings serves as a contemplative narrative of the past ten years of the artist’s life. Provocative and painterly, the multidimensional portraits cleverly juxtapose political, religious and cultural motifs in a manner that is simultaneously frolicsome and somber. Such masterful layering creates an engaging experience for the viewer that is not only visual, but visceral.’ – Constance Victory, After Nyne

Such a book is Jim Marshall: Jazz Festival.

Total Excess: Michael Zagaris| Reel Art Press | British Journal of Photography

INTERVIEW WITH MICHAEL ZAGARIS
‘SHOOTING FROM THE INSIDE OUT’

‘A new collection documents the rock & roll imagery of Californian photographer, Michael Zagaris during the 1970s. Including images of The Clash, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Grateful Dead, Blondie, The Sex Pistols, Bob Dylan and many others, the archive provides a revealing and intimate insight into this unique scene at a time of hedonistic abandon. BJP sat down with the photographer to discuss a collection that claims to be the ‘last untouched rock archive.’

Michael Zagaris has a fascinatingly broad photographic catalogue. Since the late 60s his freelance work has covered politics, culture and music, whilst his sports photography has been syndicated in pretty much every major publication in America. A recent Time Magazine cover features his image of controversial 49-ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, who has been the centre of a media storm in the US after refusing to stand for the national anthem in a show of solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

Zagaris’ new collection, ‘Total Excess’ details an array of rock royalty in their heyday, much of it occurring at the legendary Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco – a venue that the photographer first visited whilst still working out a vocational path in his early 20s.’ – Jacob Bookman, BJP

But if jazz did indeed die, what was the cause of death, and when did it pass away?’ – Graham Marsh, CNN

The New Garconne | Navaz Batliwalla | The Independent
‘A must-have book for modern, independent and stylish women’

‘A penchant for classic styles, mixing menswear with women’s and treasuring favourite garments rather than attempting a sartorial reinvention every season isn’t new, but it is a philosophy that is increasingly relevant in the frenetic digital age. A new book by writer and fashion insider Navaz Batliwalla, of the blog Disneyrollergirl.net, called The New Garconne explores this theme in 14 interviews with some of the most stylish women of the moment. Batliwalla reclaimed the term “garconne” after researching androgynous women dressers of the 1920s. “The look isn’t manly, but boyish. These women really were garconnes, playful and rebellious but with a gentleness, not aggressive, as masculinity is sometimes perceived,” she said.’  – Naomi Atwood, The Independent

“You can almost feel the sun’s warming rays and an ocean breeze emanating from Jim Marshall’s evocative photographs in the book. Jazz Festival is not a nostalgic yearning for the past, but a celebration of the continuing cultural craze for all things relating to Modern Jazz and Ivy Look clothing, which, for people who care about these things, is important. Sartorially and musically, both are intrinsically still linked and both are without doubt the essence of cool, the ultimate in hip.” – Graham Marsh, The Week
