Storie shop transforms into a gallery space this September. We are honoured that Paris based artist Matthew Rose will have his way with our pretty little space, exhibiting major new works on paper, the show is called “God and country”. In this exhibition the artist, well known on both sides of the Atlantic, targets and recast religious icons, patriotism, gods and nature with “corrected” birds in a surreal sensibility. GOD & COUNTRY includes nearly 50 new works, plus a number of larger collage pieces, an edition of objects entitled “The Blood of Christ,” and a “wall paper” print edition, Birdpaper. You need to come and see it to get it.
GOD AND COUNTRY, major new works on paper by Matthew Rose, at Storie from 30th August until 30 September 2011.
