I took the time out to visit Anthony Burrill’s latest exhibition last night at Kemistry gallery. ‘In a New Places’ the title of the exhibition was very fitting, with the work on show moving away from previous iconic typographic pieces that have become synonymous with Burrill’s brand of prints. The bold lines, flat colours and simple geometric shapes are all still present, but there’s clearly a focus on illustration taking influence from nature. The show also showed Burrill’s experimentation with with laser cut perspex in the form of some beautiful wall mounted sculptures.
All in the all the private view was pretty packed, as always at Kemistry, with a small collection card reproductions of prints in the show, being given away (I’m sure I’ll post them later on in the week) along side small postcard books that showed off more of Burril’s work that most of his patrons would be familiar with. There’s also a really bold mural on the wall outside Kemistry, so make sure you don’t miss it.
Wallpaper* magazine were also there last night and have put together a small critique of the site along side production shots of the show as it was hung yesterday. The show runs until and check out the Kemistry website for more information and opening times.
