Hock-Aun is currently subject of a solo show 'Expanding Traditions' at Glasgow School of Art. He is an alumni and past tutor of this leading creative institution. He has lived in Glasgow for the majority of his adult life.
In 2019, his three month solo show ‘Childhood Memories’ at the National Art Gallery of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, was tremendously well received with a major triptych painting being acquired for the permanent collection. The exhibition catalogue includes an essay by Julian Spalding, ex-director, Glasgow Museums.
Kendra is currently working on a commission of a Red Stag destined for a UK collection. She is also making a group of eight sculptures destined for the USA. Subjects include a bald eagle, a barn owl, an American red fox and an armadillo.
From July - September 2022, she exhibited at Doddington Hall, Lincoln, as part of ‘Sculpture at Doddington’, a biennial sculpture show curated by David Waghorne and Kate McGovern. A life-size mustang and a hind graced the galleries and gardens of this historic house.
She has also been included in a book recently published by Aurorametro. 50 Women Sculptors has an introduction by Joanna Sperryn-Jones and is an overview of contemporary female sculptors. Along with Kendra, Louis Bourgeois, Maggie Hambling, Phyllida Barlow, Doris Salcedo and Yayoi Kasuma are featured, as well as significant other artists from the past.
In February 2022, a group of small Norfolk works by John Virtue from 2019-20 was showcased on our ‘Introducing’ online exhibition platform. View here ⚯.
Over the past twenty years, the gallery has worked with Virtue one of the UK's most distinguished painters. We have sold a number of important pictures, including a large London panorama from his landmark exhibition at the National Gallery, London in 2005. We have paintings, works on paper and monotypes from all periods of John’s oeuvre for sale. We are also interested in acquiring other works.
The gallery continues to work with a collector to acquire paintings by the Brazilian urban artist duo Os Gemoes, as well as originals by KAWS. We have purchased a number of works and are keen to buy others. We would be interested to hear from anyone who is thinking of selling.
