Giles Eldridge: Gold

Opening Reception: Friday, November 11, 6pm-8pm

Isolation Room/Gallery Kit
is pleased to announce an exhibition with London based artist Giles Eldridge. GOLD, 2011, is a series of works pulled from Eldridge’s personal archive. This particular grouping was created and specifically chosen by the artist for Isolation Room to be held in stasis as a probable narrative. Eldridge culls his imagery from a variety of sources with varied references from politics, pop culture, art and architecture. Within his body of work or “archive,” Eldridge utilizes different techniques to render these subjects. Each work is individual ranging from detailed graphite drawings to relaxed watercolor sketches, varying from photo-realist to impressionistic to completely abstract. The deliberate inconsistency is Eldrige’s way of articulating the differences and offering autonomy to each of his paintings and drawings from his always expanding archive.
