< Magnus Plessen - Mess Dress Mess Undress>
First solo exhibition of German painter, Magnus Plessen, featuring works from his epic series ‘1914’, which has been four years in the making and draws on the themes of life, death and redemption. The ‘1914’ works are inspired by Ernst Friedrich’s seminal anti-war book “War Against War Protected content . Featuring photographs of wounded World War I soldiers, Friedrich’s book was the first publication that explicitly showed the devastating impact of automatic weapons on the human body. In Plessen’s paintings, the artist depicts human subjects radically fractured and removed from context, in compositions that push beyond the traditional parameters of representation. (White Cube)

< Cui XingMing - Differentiation >
Featuring new series of works by rising Chinese artist, Cui Xinming (b. Protected content , a recent graduate from the Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts. Cui’s latest paintings are marked by shifts in tone and gestural vivacity; defined by a fine balance between distant observation, atmospheric flushes and intimate delving. Whilst an element of outworldliness still prevails, the depicted visions seem to be grounded in a darker world. As such, Cui captures the spirit of an environment we are familiar with, one we describe and live through everyday, but one that is under the undefined auspices of flux. (Edouard Malingue Gallery)

< Kour Pour >
Kour Pour is known for his elaborate carpet paintings that depict familiar symbols of different cultures and universal concepts of beauty. Pour is especially interested in carpets and their role in the world as an object of craft – people waving in a community, the history, the patterns, the figures, as well as their status as collectable commodities. His carpet paintings use the structure and format of Persian miniature paintings, while all the characters and images are pulled from various sources and organized into original compositions. Narratives are created by bringing together images from different cultures and time periods and include themes of migration, race, love, spirituality, war, etc. (Pearl Lam Galleries)
