Richie Culver at LN-CC: Too Dark One Light

Late Night Chameleon Café – or LN-CC – is proud to present ‘Too Dark One Light’; a solo exhibition of new work by artist Richie Culver.

The London based concept store will launch their gallery space with a show by Richie Culver (read our interview with the artist here) – a series of new paintings, collages and mixed-media installations that sees Culver continue to explore the themes of love, loss and communication.

Beginning his artistic journey at the Tate Modern when one of his very first pieces ‘Jesse Owens’ (Have You Ever Loved Anyone) was hung in the Turbine Hall, Culver attracted the attention of the art world, with his first solo show turning London industry heads. His work is heavily autobiographical and Culver is one of those rare fiercely honest artists. Inspired by his own experiences he creates pieces that invite the viewer to share emotional, private and often pivotal moments in his life.

 

 

Highlights of the exhibition include ‘Quiet as you go up the stairs, my dad’s got a bad back’ and ‘I Loved You’ which relates to the artist’s attempts to communicate with an ex-girlfriend after the relationship fell apart, by spraying these words on her new home.

Throughout the exhibition the subject of attempted communication following a loss recurs and is particularly apparent in a series made from found Ouija boards. The series illustrates the universal struggle with grief, and the longing to maintain a relationship with those passed – both metaphorically and literally. Using his life as a tool for illustration, Culver offers the viewer a chance to reflect on their own experiences and emotions.

‘Too Dark One Light’ will run in store at LN-CC from 16 June until 7 July 2011 with an opportunity to view and purchase artwork. Open 7 days a week, by appointment only. See www.ln-cc.com.
