Fractures of the Lens is an exhibition at Burgh House featuring the work of two artists who address the emotional effect of current politics in their work.
Curated by art historian Alex Steinacker-Clark, founder of All About Art Podcast, the exhibition brings together paintings by Russian artist Katya Granova and prints by Londoner Simon Hodgkinson.
Their practices may differ visually, but they are united by “a common interest in post-truth and the distortions of history”.
Their varied cultural and artistic backgrounds create different approaches to the theme. In his monotypes, Hodgkinson explores the layering of visual information and a search for truth, while Granova combines his brushwork with a moment of objective history captured in enlarged period photographs.
The exhibition is sponsored by Slash Arts which supports emerging artists.
Fractures of the Lens runs until August 14 at the Peggy Jay Gallery, Burgh House, Hampstead from 10am-4pm. www.burghhouse.org.uk/whats-on/exhibitions/fractures-of-the-lens
