Aleph Contemporary presents two new exhibitions of contemporary art at TM Gallery.

After Great Pain…A Formal Feeling Comes

*This exhibition is postponed until further notice.

TM Lighting is pleased to announce two novel exhibitions presented in collaboration with London gallery Aleph Contemporary. These shows entitled “After Great Pain” and “A Formal Feeling Comes” bring together a selection of work by both established artists and emerging talents and present a new way of looking at contemporary artistic practice as a response to modern life.

 ‘After great pain, a formal feeling comes’ (Emily Dickinson)

Celebrating a breadth of practices ranging from figurative to abstract painting, these innovative group shows include work by both emerging and established artists. Part 1 showcases work by Christy Burdock, Joana Galego, Paul Newman, and Jaime Valtierra, and Part 2 features work by Willard Boepple, Peter Griffin, and Rebecca Meanley. 

“Some people think that painters have painted themselves into a corner, that painting is an irrelevance in the fast-moving, digital, algorithm-controlled world in which we serve our life sentence.…Today there are new freedoms in being a painter …There is now no sentinel standing over the manual of interpretation. You as the visitor are as free as you like to see what you like and don’t like in the paint”. (Alistair Hicks, Curator)

These innovative exhibitions offer a unique opportunity to view new contemporary work by a diverse group of artists in dialogue. 

TM Lighting illuminates the works of art displayed using their Gallery G150 LED spotlights. As with TM’s full range of LED luminaires, the G150 uses high CRI 95+ color rendition LED’s.

The online catalogue will have a foreword by renowned curator and critic Alistair Hicks and an introduction by artist and art historian Ruth Smith.
