Dísir – an exhibition in collaboration with Kristian Day Gallery
and Jeanette Gunnarson, 11th July – 30th August 2019
at TM Lighting Gallery
TM Lighting is delighted to announce Dísir, an exhibition in collaboration with curators Kristian Day and Jeanette Gunnarson featuring work by contemporary artists Aisha Christison, Anousha Payne and Lucy Evetts.
Dísir explores the correlation of digital and spiritual ‘other worlds’, new and old realities be they algorithmic or folkloric. Free association and creativity are pitted against and merged with automated reasoning. How much expression is left to chance? Fittingly the Dísir of our title were the female deities of Norse mythology known to control fate, be it benevolent or hostile.
Aisha Christison’s paintings are saccharine dreamlike scenes that pay homage to formative years spent between the virtual and physical world. Operating outside of conventional dimensional planes, Christison employs imagery using interwoven fragments of her personal history through a visual language made possible by digital technology yet also shows its origins in European post-expressionism. With a strong sense of nostalgia, her paintings offer the viewer an intimate view to her interior world.
Anousha Payne’s work explores the human pursuit of spirituality in object form, as a form of cultural expression that is distinct from religious symbolism. Through the process of psychic automatism and free-association, she is interested in the possibility of imbuing spirituality into an object, and in the material qualities of religious or spiritual objects. Payne is currently researching the anthropological notion of new animism and is exploring how this can express spirituality through instinctive drawings and watercolour paintings, these are then translated into sculptures. This process seeks to build an aesthetic dialogue and personal visual language as a meditative interaction. A recurring theme is highlighting the incongruity between ancient materiality and modern technology.
Lucy Evetts makes paintings and installations using a variety of different approaches that include paint, silk screen and print. Using text and imagery Evetts creates fragmented voices and visual languages that continuously collide juggling private and public experiences. Predominantly sourcing her imagery from social media, led by her own online algorithm, and attempts to question ideas of intimacy and modes of sharing to create paradoxical narratives.
TM Lighting, leading art lighting specialists, will collaborate with Kristian Day and Jeanette Gunnarson to illuminate the works of art in Dísir using their high colour rendition LED gallery spotlights to bring the works of art to life within TM Lighting Gallery.
A Private View will take place on 10th July, 6.30 pm – 8.30pm.

Shining a light on design innovation; TM Lighting joins Benjamin Hubert of LAYER, and Cosentino, to present ‘Raytrace’ at Milan Design Week, 2019
April 9th – 14th 2019
TM Lighting, British designer and maker of specialist LED art lighting, has joined British designer Benjamin Hubert of LAYER in collaboration with Cosentino, worldwide leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, to present Raytrace at Milan Design Week 2019. The collaboration showcases an immersive, architectural installation introducing Dekton®, the ultra-compact, large format surface by Cosentino – exploring the product’s design, innovation, strength, durability and beauty.
The large-scale, architectural installation Raytrace is a 25-metre long and 6-metre high triangular passage composed of Dekton® ultracompact surfaces, seemingly balanced on a single edge within a dark, atmospheric space. Upon entering the passageway, a mesmerising caustic pattern slowly dances across the surface, emulating the refraction of light through water – evoking the serene feeling of being underwater. As visitors walk through the passage, they become a part of the installation, as their shadows are cast against the structure’s surface. Two mirrors at either end of the vault reflect the installation, creating the illusion of an infinite space and offering glimpses of the caustic patterns playing out on the interior.
The lighting for Raytrace is an integral part of Hubert’s installation at Milan Design Week. TM Lighting has specified their superior, high colour rendition LED ZeroSixty accent lights with a custom length snoot to provide enhanced glare control, mounted above the installation on Arttrack to focus the light directly into the organic forms composed of Dekton® ultracompact surfaces, creating caustic light effects and an immersive and mesmerising experience for visitors.
Hubert’s design references the highly technological qualities of Dekton® as an indoor/outdoor architectural product and the natural minerals used to produce the material. Taking inspiration from the Dekton® creation process, Hubert creates a dramatic, interactive experience showcasing the harmony between nature, light and architecture.
Benjamin Hubert comments “We chose the ZeroSixty light’s by TM Lighting for our immersive Raytrace installation for their technical attributes. We were looking for a sustainable, high-powered single LED light source to create the unique caustic lighting experience – the centerpiece of the installation, and they were the perfect choice.”
Harry Triggs of TM Lighting comments, “We’re thrilled to collaborate with Benjamin Hubert to present Raytrace at Milan Design Week. It’s exciting to bring together TM’s specialist LED art lighting with Cosentino’s innovative material to create an experience that explores the boundless possibilities of light and design.”
TM Lightings partnership with Benjamin Hubert follows their previous collaboration for LAYER’s show-stopping FOIL installation at London Design Festival, one of the most visited installations showcased at London’s V&A Museum.

The Culminating Moment
12th April – 7th June, 2019
A group exhibition curated by Jon Sharples at TM Lighting Gallery
TM Lighting is delighted to announce The Culminating Moment, a group exhibition curated by Jon Sharples is opening from 12th April – 7th June 2019 at TM Lighting Gallery. This group show, including work by contemporary artists Jacopo Dal Bello, Louise Giovanelli, Chris Gray, Freya E Morris and Irvin Pascal, seeks out a Baroque sensibility and a taste for drama in contemporary art.
The works in the exhibition employ a number of methods to suggest the specificity of a ‘moment’, inevitably a fragment, with the interest supplied as much by what is held back as by what is present, ultimately enlisting the mind of the viewer as a collaborator to finish the job. Doses of realism are undermined by the exposing of any attempt to fix reality as being doomed to be an incomplete and subjective snapshot, nevertheless making a strong case for the power of instrumentalised art and dark comedy in an age of division and culture wars.
From Baroque painting to film noir cinematography, artists have used contrast between light and shadow to create a sense of immediacy, depth and drama – a spot-lit choreography of the viewer’s gaze and the subconscious feeling that a step forward or back would change everything. TM Lighting, art lighting specialists, will collaborate with Jon Sharples to illuminate the works of art in The Culminating Moment, using their high colour rendition GalleryOneFifty LED spotlights to bring the works of art to life within the gallery.
Jon Sharples comments: “From Baroque painting to film noir cinematography, artists have long used contrast between light and shadow to create a sense of immediacy, depth and drama – a spot-lit choreography of the viewer’s gaze and the feeling that a step forward or back would change everything. I am thrilled to have this opportunity to work with the experts at TM Lighting to light these works in a way that does them justice.”
Hannah Payne, Director of Marketing, TM Lighting comments: “We’re delighted to welcome Jon Sharples to curate the latest exhibition at TM Lighting Gallery for an exhibition that fully supports emerging artists. We believe the process of lighting art is an art in itself, and this exhibition presents a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with the artists to consider the themes in their work, and create drama with light.”
A Private View will take place on Thursday 11th April, 6.30 pm – 8.30pm. RSVP

Philip de László: An Anniversary Celebration at BADA Fair, 2019 Duke of York Square, Chelsea
“Has any one painter ever before painted so many interesting and historical personages?” Lord Selborne
BADA returns to Duke of York Square from 20-26 March, and is proud to be working with The de Laszlo Archive Trust to present one of the highlights of BADA 2019, the loan exhibition Philip de László: An Anniversary Celebration.
De László was one of the most famous artists in the world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and is today celebrated as one of the last proponents of Grand Manner portraiture. His remarkable client list included many members of the royal and aristocratic houses of Europe, two Popes, four U.S. Presidents, and leading figures in politics, religion, society and industry. By the end of his life de László had been awarded 22 orders and 17 medals of merit by his royal sitters.
Philip de László (1869-1937) was born Fülöp Laub, the eldest son of Adolf and Johanna Laub, a Budapest tailor and seamstress. He took the Hungarian name László, as a patriotic act in 1891, and was ennobled by Emperor Franz Joseph in 1912. His talent won him a scholarship to the Hungarian National Academy of Art, and he furthered his studies in Munich and Paris.
His reputation grew steadily throughout the 1890s and in 1900 his portrait of Pope Leo XIII earned him a Grand Gold Medal at the Paris International Exhibition. That same year he married Lucy Madeleine Guinness, of the banking family, who would be the sitter for many of his most imaginative works.
To celebrate the 150th anniversary of de László’s birth, the exhibition at BADA 2019 will offer a selection of masterpieces of the artist’s oeuvre, all rarely seen paintings sourced from private collections. These include commissioned portraits which established de László’s unparalleled reputation, intimate portraits of family and friends, and examples of landscapes he painted for pleasure in his later years.
Philip de László: An Anniversary Celebration is sponsored by CBC Partnership, who offer independent advice and specialist insurance for those involved in the art world, from private collectors and dealers, to museums and corporations with global reach.
BADA would also like to thank TM Lighting, art lighting specialists who will be supplying their high colour rendition LED Picture Lights to illuminate the paintings within this milestone exhibition.
TM Lighting at BADA Fair:
TM Lighting, British designer and maker of a new generation of LED Picture Lights and Accent Lights for the art world, is committed to creating an authentic viewing experience with LED in museum collections and heritage settings by being mindful of era, style and immediate context of the artwork.

Using its extensive range of specialist LED products, TM Lighting is able to tailor the lighting to the needs of the individual artwork, surrounding architecture and eccentricities of each historic house or collection, in order to create an entirely customised solution for each project.
The benefits of TM’s high- quality LEDs supersede those of any other light source; in addition to enhancing the visual presentation of artwork, the low-energy LED products result in improvements to the conservation of work, as well as considerable energy and cost-savings.

At BADA Fair, TM Lighting will install the TM Goodwood Picture Lights to light the paintings within the Philip de László: An Anniversary Celebration exhibition. The TM Goodwood Picture Light has been selected for its classical style, finished in gold to work with the exhibition designed in the style of a classical museum collection which will include original gilded frames and vibrant blue walls. Designed to fit seamlessly into the aesthetic of classical historic buildings, and museum collections, the TM Goodwood Picture Light includes a true colour LED module (+95 CRI), uniform light projection and a deep hood design for added glare control.
