Articles Tagged with: painting

We asked 40 artists what is the one book they wish everyone would read, here are their answers…

Paul Weiner (@POWeiner) – The book that I’m writing and releasing in about twenty years. Keep your eyes peeled, friends.

Charley Peters (@CharleyPeters) – ‘A Room of One’s Own’ by Virginia Woolf. It shows really well how artists need space and time to be creative – because only once we have that we can discover the truths in ourselves and what that means for our work.

Remi Rough (@RemiRough) – The Hagakure

Jonny Green (@JonnyGreenArt) – The Mass Psychology of Fascism by Wilhem Reich. Written in 1933. Happening in a country near you right now. The politics of the sexually repressed.

Richard Stone (@Artist_Stone) – The Last Wave by Gillian Best, its a great book, a love story to the sea and ahem, it was inspired by a painting of mine of the same name.

Kevin Perkins (@Kevin_Perkins_) – In Watermelon Sugar – Richard Brautigan

Sally Bourke (@Justondark) – The god of small things.

Lee Johnson (@LeeJohnson.eu) – Knut Hamsun’s Hunger

Jenny Brosinski (@Jenny_Brosisnski) – Le petit prince

Andy Dixon (@Andy.Dxn) – Balzac’s Lost Illusions.

Klone Yourself (@KloneYourself) – 100 years of solitude.

Daisy Parris (@DaisyParris) – Nasty Women – a collection of essays and accounts on what it is to be a woman in the 21st century

Jake Chapman (@JakeChapmaniac) – Accursed Share.

Tom Anholt (@TomAnholt) – The Hypnotist, Laurence Anholt

Spencer Shakespeare (@SpencerShakespeare) -The book of John.

Hayden Kays (@HaydenKays) – ‘Happy’ by Derren Brown. It’s witty, informative and hugely rewarding. I’d go so far as to say, a life changing read.

Andrew Salgado (@Andrew.Salgado.Art) – Susan Orlean’s ‘The Orchid Thief’ is about obsession, and its non-fiction, and its brilliant. thats my first pick. a much more obvious choice for artists would be Art/work by Heather Bhandari as its like, ‘everything you need to know yesterday about an art career’.

Benjamin Murphy (@BenjaminMurphy_) – In Search Of Lost Time by Marcel Proust. He understood the human condition better than anyone else, and most of what you could ever want to learn about life is contained within ISOLT.

Richie Culver (@RichieCulver) – Floyd Mayweather’s autobiography.

Jordy Kerwick (@JordyKerwick) – The Rum Diary – Hunter S Thompson

Danny Romeril (@D_Romeril) – JG Ballard; Cocaine Nights, Crash and Empire of the Sun

Florence Hutchings (@FlorenceBH) – The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

Soumya Netrabile (@Netrabile) – I think Interviews with Francis Bacon by David Sylvester is essential for every artist. Bacon deftly elucidates some of the important nuances of the art making process in response to Sylvester’s brilliant questions.

Luke Hannam (@LukeHannamPaintings) – Matisse -The Life of a Master by Hilary Spurling

Hedley Roberts (@HedleyRoberts) – One book? Phew. That’s tough. Either Brave New World by Huxley, or Narcissus and Goldmund by Hesse.

Matthew Allen (@Matthew__Allen) – I would recomend everyone to read the poetics of space, by Gaston Bachelard. Its a beautiful read and lead me to a deeper appreciation for the everyday spaces that I move through and dwell in.

Nick JS Thompson (@nickjsthompson) – The very hungry caterpillar.

Neva Hosking (@NevaHosking) – I reckon To kill a Mockingbird is always required reading.

Justin Long (@_JustinLong) – #wherethewildthingsare

Erin Lawlor (@TheErinLawlor) – Slaughterhouse 5, Kurt Vonnegut.

Justin Lee Williams (@ArtJLW) – To many to mention, but I would start with all the major religious books, I’m not religious but it does give a understanding to why humanity is so fantastic and fucked at the same time

Wingshan Smith (@wingshansmith) – Everyone should read what they want.

Fiona Grady (@Fiona_Grady) – “We Should All Be Feminists” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – I think the title is pretty self explanatory. The aim of the essay is to remove the negative associations of the word feminism and embrace the idea of believing in equal rights.

Obit (@LazyObit) – Mr Bump by Roger Hargreaves. No matter how many knocks you take and how shit you are at life in general you’ll eventually find something that is perfect for you if you stay positive.

Anthony Cudahy (@AnthonyCudahy) – Paradise – Toni Morrison

Johnny Thornton (@_JohnnyThornton) – Simulacra and Simulation by Jean Baudrillard. It really opened me up to a lot of interesting ideas when I was a bit younger and some of those ideas still resonate with me today

Magnus Gjoen (@MagnusGjoen) – The Prince by Machiavelli.

Jesse Draxler (@JesseDraxler) – Freedom From Anger – a book I lend ppl, who then want to keep it. I’m on my sixth copy.

Martin Lukac (@Martin.Lukac) – Kamasutra

Mevlana Lipp (@Mevlana_Lipp) – “The color of magic“ by Terry Pratchett.

Delphian X Guts

Delphian X Guts

 

Join us for the private view of the Delphian Gallery X Guts Gallery collaboration exhibition with the most exciting contemporary art around.

Private View Thursday 28th November 6-9pm
Exhibition continues until Wednesday 4th December

Socially, politically, and economically, we are living in trying times. These difficulties create division, and division breeds competition. We endeavour to support all art-world practitioners wherever possible, whether they reciprocate or otherwise, and to collaborate with what would (by some) be called our direct competitors. We believe that the art-world would be a much more open, supportive, and progressive place to work if we started working together, rather than pulling apart. For this reason, Delphian and Guts have decided to join forces.

Exhibiting Artists

Douglas Cantor, Florence Hutchings, Geoffrey Bohm, Igor Moritz, Jake Grewal, Lauren Roche, Morteza Khakshoor, Rachael McCully, Sebastian Eriksson, Sunyoung Hwang, Tania Alvarez, Valerie Savchits.

Generously supported by The Factory and Crate Brewery

Opening Hours
Monday: 11am — 5pm
Tuesday — Friday: 11am — 7pm
Saturday: 8am — 7pm
Sunday: 10am — 6pm

Habitual Submission Install Photos

On Thursday we opened Rhiannon Salisbury’s solo show Habitual Submission. She was the overall winner of our annual Open Call, following Florence Hutchings’ Seating Arrangement in summer 2018.

Much of the work in the show is inspired by Guy Debord’s essay Society of the Spectacle, as well as Charlotte Perkins-Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper.

Portrait of Kristin Hjellegjerde in her london gallery space

Gallerist and curator Kristin Hjellegjerde joins us for the Delphian Podcast this week. Known for its multicultural curatorial approach the gallery quickly gained recognition for exhibiting a roster of innovative, international artists since its inception in 2012. Kristin has galleries in both London and Berlin as well as a new London project space which will also be expanding in 2021.

We talk about the way in which she finds artists and how artists can make themselves more visible to galleries, the importance of networking, collaboration between galleries, and advice to young curators. We also touch upon the sometimes prohibitive cost of art fairs and how this affects a gallery’s decisions on their programming.
