NINA FOWLER: MEASURING ELVIS AUCTION

17th December 2014

The Cob Gallery is excited to announce our Christmas Party and Auction Fundraiser on the evening 17th December 2014 at Blacks Club, Soho . In celebration of the final days of our crowdfunding campaign for our first gallery publication in collaboration with artist Nina Fowler.

Cob Gallery and Nina Mae Fowler aim to produce a desirable and relevant book, which will include in depth analysis of Fowler’s key drawing series, as well as independent essays written about Fowler and her practice. The book will expose the intensive research methods used by the artist and feature excerpts from sketchbooks alongside images of work in progress. This will allow the book to fully explore the processes used by Fowler in meticulously building her large-scale drawings.

John Maybury comments: ‘I’ve long admired the work of Nina Fowler both as a technician and, although it might seem a strange choice of phrase, as a conceptual artist…The drawings in particular bring that bizarre phenomenon of movie Gods and Goddesses back to us now in sharp focus – the elegiac rendering…in graphite – possess an extraordinarily cinematic quality – as collage – montage – whatever – the evocation is pure poetry.’

Nina Fowler’s panoramic original drawing ‘Sympathy II’ is inspired by and created from studies of stills from the 1968 Jean Luc Godard film Sympathy For The Devil will be exclusively auctioned on the evening. It is a unique and standout piece from her archive.

Please join us at Blacks Club, Soho for a champagne reception and live Auction hosted by Bernie Katz and Lazarides Gallery Managing Director Chris Ford. All money raised at will go towards the publication fund with a special thank you acknowledgement to the winning bidders in the book.
