Tony’s is pleased to present a solo exhibition by the British artist Debbie Lawson. The exhibition will feature an extensive collection of inlaid wooden panels and carpet sculptures.Â Lawsonâ€™s work is included in a number of prominent collections such as that of the House of Lords, the Saatchi Gallery, Mario Testino and the University of the Arts London. She has recently shown work alongside Jeff Koons, Gary Hume and Grayson Perry in â€˜Contemporary Eye: Crossoversâ€™ at Pallant House Gallery, and is currently showing in “Ha Ha Road”, at QUAD Derby, alongside Pipilotti Rist, Bedwyr Williams and Erwin Wurm. Born in Dundee, Lawson graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2004 with an MA in Sculpture and now lives and works in east London.
Tony’s is pleased to present “A FIST FULL OF PAINT”. An exhibition by East London’s notorious Burning Candy (BC) crew. The exhibition will centre on presenting the aftermath of a western style showdown using paint-filled fire extinguishers. Two B.C members were let loose in a wild, head to head, battle using high pressured paint, and leaving behind the gestural process of their actions, as well as a film documentation, reflecting the bigger picture of the competitive, fun and extreme nature of the graffiti world. Tony’s will stage this performative and yet subversive encounter, turning what may at once be perceived as an act of vandalism into a playful comment on the art world and its systems of presentation.
Tony’s gallery is delighted to present “Bortusk took a trip”, the first solo show by UK artist Bortusk Leer. Since bursting onto the art scene in 2007, Bortusk’s naively spray-painted and marker penned monsters have become a common sight on the streets of London and New York. For the inaugural exhibition at Tony’s, Bortusk Leer will present a site-specific installation alongside a selection of recent paintings and sculptures.
