The Albemarle Relaunch at Pontone Gallery7 Feb - 10 Mar 2019For twenty years The Albemarle Gallery, founded and directed by Tony Pontone, represented an international stable of painters and sculptors in Mayfair. Showcasing highly-crafted artworks by technically-accomplished representational artists, The Albemarle Gallery became synonymous with the very best in contemporary figurative art.
Now, The Albemarle has a new home at Pontone Gallery. Under the directorship of Domenic Pontone, the gallery begins anew with a programme of contemporary shows at Pontone Gallery’s Chelsea space.
Bae JoonsungThe Costume of Painter - Still Life 28 Oct - 20 Nov 2016Bae Joonsung deploys a sophisticated and complex process of image making. The artist’s subjects are carefully painted, then these paintings are photographed and combined into a ‘lenticular’ print, which allows another image to be revealed as the viewer changes their angle of vision. Important to this process is the ‘layering’ of imagery, that is, an idea of a painting within a painting; alternative versions of a painting can exist within the same surface.
