Virtual Tour - Lubberland: A solo exhibition of new work by Harry Rüdham

Grove Square Galleries is delighted to announce Lubberland, a forthcoming solo exhibition of new and recent works by Harry Rüdham. Comprising 16 paintings and two innovative paper works, Lubberland will run 17 February – 2 April 2022

 

“Taking combined inspiration from such masterpieces as Bruegel’s The Land of Cockaigne, Hieronymus Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights and Matisse’s Bonheur de Vivre, Rüdham’s paintings are crowded with intersecting figures, stylised as floating or falling silhouettes repeated across each brightly textured scene. As in Dante’s Divine Comedy, in Lubberland Rüdham offers a sense of joyful optimism but also foreboding – set amid the context of a soul’s journey down to Hell and back to Heaven. Paintings such as Lemon Curd and Strawberry Jam are luscious and thronging, bursting with figures that flow like the wine in those medieval streams of fantasy.’
