Private & Public Gallery
The next exhibition at CCaSM Modern & Contemporary Art in St Helier is a celebration of artists who translate the beauty of the natural world into their own visual language.
It is a group show that includes artist from East Asia, South Asia, North America and Europe at various stages of their careers, and includes works by some of the most famous artists in working in the world today.
The interpretations of nature vary greatly across the artists in the exhibition. At one end of the spectrum acclaimed Korean master photographer Boomoon selects his monumental images from over 10,000 elaborately set-up shots taken standing in the freezing plunge pool of the Skogafoss Waterfall in Iceland, at the other end, art superstar Damien Hirst’s adds to his ongoing personal encoding of human chemistry in his dot series, which is a key part of almost every important collection of contemporary art in the world and represented in this show through the most recent of his rare, museum-quality wood-block prints.
The exhibition will include works by Boomoon, Gary Hume, Anish Kapoor, Damien Hirst, Sue Arrowsmith and Nissa Nishikawa.
