London
Phillips de Pury
at Saatchi Gallery
Private exhibition
2010.09-11

 A solo exhibition by Phillips de Pury & Company at the Saatchi Gallery in London from the London Design Festival in September to the Frieze Art Fair in October.
‘Outlines were the theme of the exhibition. Slight black lines like the traces of sketches drawn in the air made transparent surfaces and volumes appear, which we assigned practical functions. The outlines remained after simplifying paintings of plants and animals. They are condensed expressions of meaning, similar to Japanese calligraphy. The designs gently break the relationship of before and behind, and traverse at times the space between two and three dimensions. Multi-faceted and constantly morphing, they move alternately between the becoming and collapse of form.  (nendo)
