London apter dark (1980-1990)
"In the silence of the night the city speaks for itself.” writes Robert Cowan in a commentary for London After Dark, Alan Delaney's photographs published by Phaidon.
“At night the city appears, literally in a new light: floodlight brilliantly illuminating what by day the sun casts in shadow; harsh slanting streetlight or pale moonlight.”
The photographs of Alan Delaney (b.1958, London) “show what generations of Londoners have created: the manifestations in brick, stone, concrete and steel of the life of a great city - of hopes, dream, genius, generosity and greed, pomposity and piety.”
Big Appetites (2005-Ongoing)
The world is gastronomic: lovers embrace in a clamshell; canoeists set sail on split milk; scuba divers prepare to submerge in a cup of tea; a golfer tees off the top of a cupcake. Christopher Boffoli (b. Massachusetts, US) belongs to a select group of artists who play with scale, magnifying and subverting the everyday to create a world for his meticulously hand-painted miniature figures to inhabit.
Four Flowers (1980-2010)
Using paper made sensitive by coating with chemicals that turn a vivid cobalt blue when exposed to the light, the cyanotype process records in bluish-white the image of anything that casts a shadow on it. Made famous by Man Ray in Paris in the early 1920's, the camera-less technique is applied here by Alexander Hamilton (b.1950, Edinburgh) to capture the still and ethereal elegance of wild flowers from the Scottish highlands – a journey the artist has carried out over forty years
