View Exhibition

Lychee One Gallery is pleased to present “FARCE”. This exhibition brings together new paintings by Neill Kidgell and a sculptural installation work by Jack Killick.

The works presented here share the appearance of being made up of fragments and emerge out of an improvisational approach to image and mark making, and to the manipulation of physical material and error. Both the paintings and the sculpture engage archetypal forms, quotidian or close-at-hand subject matter and material, and the desire to shift, transform and re-encounter the familiar in an unfamiliar way. Through this muddling of reality and imagination, scale, colour and shape become heightened or distorted and signification becomes ambiguous or nonsensical. In this way, for all their stillness and embeddedness in the tangible world, these works move between representation and abstraction and seek to directly address the non-fixity of perception.

Neill Kidgell (b.1981, Ipswich, UK), lives and works in London. Neill studied at the Royal Academy Schools (PG Dip Fine Art, 2013–16), Chelsea College of Art and Design(BA Hons Fine Art, 2000–03) and Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design(Foundation, 1999–2000). Recent exhibitions include: Opening Ride, Carousel, London (2017), Summer Blue, Lychee One, London (2016), RA Schools Show, Royal Academy of Arts, London (2016) and Premiums, Royal Academy of Arts, London (2015). Neill is currently a lecturer on the BA Fine Art course at Kingston University and will be the Artist in Residence at Eton College from September through December 2017.

Neill makes paintings that involve abstract form, mark making and representational suggestion. Things are worked out and edited on the surface and the traces of this process, of erasing and over painting, remain visible in the finished works. The paintings frequently look like an accumulation of fragments that hover, or oscillate, between being recognisable and not, between being or suggesting one thing and another. These elements emerge and often repeat, combine and transform within an individual work and across a number of paintings.

Jack Killick (b.London, 1985) studied at the Royal Academy Schools (PG Dip Fine Art, 2013–16),The Slade School of Art (BA Hons Fine Art, 2004–08). Recent exhibitions include: QUESTION CENTRE, Studio RCA Riverside, London (2017), Strike Site, PiARTWORKS, LONDON, (2017), CRISPS, UEL project space, (2016), RA Schools Show, Royal Academy of Arts, London (2016) and Premiums, Royal Academy of Arts, London (2015).

Jack makes paintings, drawings and sculptures which tend to culminate in immersive environments. He often paints on walls claiming the architectural nuances of a given space as a starting point to dictate large abstract forms highlighting the sculptural qualities within painting. Frequently the paintings also form the basis for sculptural environments, sets or stages that are activated by the presence of people and these installations, made from robust building materials like wood and plaster, often seem too large for the space they inhabit.
