Exposition Exhibition : « Iterations » by Richard Caldicott Press release :
NEW YORK, April 2017
Sous Les Etoiles Gallery is pleased to present “Iterations”, Richard Caldicott’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, April 20, 2017, from 6 – 8 PM with the artist in attendance.
With a profound sense of method and extreme rigor based on the direct drive and the precision of gesture, Richard Caldicott approaches the medium of photography as an endless enigma. “Iterations” is a series about overlaying, scaling, repeating, and multiplying. Through the process of duplication, replication and the subtle adjustments of color, his images follow a discernible linear compositional logic. Forms, surfaces and colors are developed according to his experience and vision that invite us to dive into his ... Exposition The exhibition : «big nothing »

... Exposition ‹abstract› Galerie f5,6, Munich The exhibition ‹abstract› as the definition most simply states is quite simply an „abstract“ and concurrently a small exploration into the possibilites of abstract photography now. Since 2003 abstract photography has been a central and recurring theme of the gallery programme. Next to three artists the gallery has worked with since 2003 - Antonio Azuaga (Spain), Richard Caldicott (Great Britain) and John Goto (Great Britain), we have invited Edward Mapplethorpe (USA) and Silvio Wolf (Italy) to show their latest work. From the beginning of photography in the late 19th Century, the medium has often defined itself through the often dramatic rivalry of painting versus photography. But abstract photography has been a small but fascinating strand, ever since the beginnings, from Henry Fox Talbot&rsquo... Exposition RICHARD CALDICOTT New Work Within this new series of large format works, Richard Caldicott marks a fundamental shift and return to previous concerns, that of the still life motif. "I wanted to deal with concrete objects again." Caldicott.
Reminiscent of his Tupperware series exhibited at Hamiltons in Spring 2002, these ordinary plastic cups assume a seductive, pensive aura, they are about colour and light rather than the objects themselves. The viewer is encouraged to look beyond the practical surface of the work and celebrate the unexpected beauty of these mundane household items. "A plastic cup can be the most banal form possible and the work tests the viewers attention; will they allow the simplicity of this object to be contemplative or will they dismiss it completely?" Caldicott.
By stacking one cup over anothe... Exposition Richard Caldicott The early work of Richard Caldicott is in dialogue with the tradition of the photographic still-life and its reference into abstract painting. His objects of plastic everyday day Tupperware are taken out of its context and are canonised into the realms of 60's abstract art in a post modern, humorous manner. As Christopher Schreier writes: "Of a quite commanding, space-impinging presence, their dispute with painting, however, lies on a different, non-metric level. Even a first impression reveals the painterly qualities of his art. what we take in is summed up in a phrase Eugene Delacroix once coined for painting, namely "sensations colourantes", the visual sensations that seem sufficient unto themselves and the eye of the beholder. We may be tempted to regard these pictures purely for pleasure, and indeed ...
