Lapislazuli Gallery: 11th of August – 10th of Sept

Armando Seijo (Sevilla, 1971)

Exhibition dates: 11th – 25th of August

Armando Seijo explores the relationship between art and technology in a reflexion on the abrupt Ukraine war, and the volatility of political circumstances, through a glance to a past that has been drastically altered.

Google Street View acts as a virtual and dynamic window for exploration; even if distorted, it shows a Ukrainian local lifestyle, that has not yet been updated the current dramatic situation.

Seijo’s empathy and connection with these pre-war, digitally captured scenes motivated him to interpret selected and inspiring images – landscapes seen through this window where the war doesn’t exist.

Javier Sánchez Bellver (Madrid, 1951)

Exhibition dates: 26 August – 10 September 

This exhibition brings the works of the Spanish artist Javier Sánchez Bellver to London for the first time. A selection of still life oil paintings as a sample to his prolific body of work deeply rooted in the pictorial genre, that he vindicates from a naturalistic approach on mundanity and elementary beauty.

Paying attention to the nearby and often overlooked life of objects, he interferes in their private life through primitives but delicates compositional designs, using shelves as scenarios for depiction of fruits, vegetables, and other objects that he believes are worthy of study, emphasizing their attributes by uplifting them closer to eye level – away from a preponderant point of view.
