Jennifer Guerrini-Maraldi, Director of JGM Gallery, comments, “The gallery seeks to show great contemporary art regardless of ethnicity or origin. We’re very pleased to be able to present the work of these artists both at London Art Fair and for an extended period at the ‘Satellite’ exhibition at TM Lighting Gallery”

 

TM Lighting, art lighting specialists, will collaborate with JGM Gallery to illuminate the works of art in ‘Satellite’ using its high colour rendition Gallery One Fifty LED spotlights to bring the works of art to life at the TM Lighting Gallery.

Andrew Molyneux, Co-Founder of TM Lighting comments, “It’s very exciting to collaborate with JGM Gallery to bring works of such diversity into a group exhibition and to present and light them at our new gallery space, part of our annual programme supporting contemporary artists.”

Bob Gibson (b. 1974 Papunya, Northern Territory)

Bob Gibson Tjungarrayi was born at Papunya,( Northern Territory) in 1974, before moving with his family to Tjukurla in the remote Gibson Desert,  during the time of the homelands movement. The son of renowned artist Mary Gibson, Bob paints his ancestral stories with a raw intensity. His palette of wild hues reveals an unrestrained joy for experimentation, tempered with nostalgia as he recalls his father’s country around Patjarr and his mother’s country of Kulkuta.Bob Gibson currently lives and works in the Gibson Desert, Western Australia.

Henry Skerritt, Art historian and senior curator of Kluge Ruhe Collection at the University of Virginia,USA writes. “Gibson’s works are not simply unmediated depictions of country, but integrated and resolved extensions of cultural knowledge.”

Danie Mellor 9b. 1971, Queensland, Australia)

Danie Mellor is today one of Australia’s most celebrated artists. Born in Mackay, Queensland in 1971, his Aboriginal family were from the rainforests of Northern Queensland, and his father’s family emigrated from California, coming to Australia in the early 1900s. Mellor has lived in Australia, Scotland, South Africa and England and currently lives and works in Bowral, New South Wales. His twenty first century works unravel connections between his familial cultures and the secrets inherent in Australian history.

In the catalogue to his 10-year survey exhibition Danie Mellor: Exotic Lies Sacred Ties atThe University of Queensland Art Museum in 2014, Dr Cambell Gray writes: “Danie Mellor’s work is at once beautiful and a calling to account. Finely crafted, embellished and framed, with images and devices that disarm with humour, narrative and a play on the ‘exotic’, the work nonetheless confronts and confounds our understanding of the past. Mellor tells stories that are neither simple nor complete. Instead, the view is presented with multiple layers that challenge assumptions. Stories collide and metaphors reach further than expected.”

A Private View of ‘Satellite’ will take place at TM Lighting Gallery from 6.30pm – 8.30pm Wednesday 13th February 2019. This exhibition at TM Lighting Gallery is in association with
