Event description

Description

Geographical meridians have allowed efficient navigation and shaped civilisation over centuries, whilst in Ancient Chinese medicine, the meridian system describes interconnected pathways of life-energy within the body. The series of paintings by Caio Locke brought together in this show play with the analogy in most thought-provoking ways: by combining references to iconic cosmopolitan cities and visionary architecture, dreamscapes and urban life, Meridian Skylines encourages reflections on transcendence and coexistence. Caio Locke's intricate creations take inspiration from frantic metropolises such as London, Rio de Janeiro and New York to invite the viewers to meditate upon the foundations and connections of inner life and social dynamics.

Caio Locke is an Anglo-Brazilian artist based in London. Painting primarily in acrylic on large canvases, Locke creates utopian cities and surrealistic scenes to investigate themes including self-transcendence and consciousness, our future civilisation, our relationship with man-made and natural environments, and our desire for intellectual exploration and creative expression.

He has exhibited at Royal Museum of Scotland, Royal Hospital Chelsea, National Theatre, Harrods, Bon Marché in Paris, Oaktree & Tiger in South Kensington, Hoxton Gallery, Rook & Raven Gallery in Fitzrovia, Painshill Park. He has worked in contemporary design and sculpture with the Fabergé Egg Parade, London Elephant Parade, Purling London and The BFG Dream Jar Trail. The artist is currently represented internationally by Oaktree & Tiger, organiser of this exhibition.


Exhibition continues until 26th October.
