Kate Moss and Nine Other Women is the exhibition by the London-based artist Lorenzo Belenguer in the prestigious Mayfair district of London. The solo show will exhibit ten original drawings and will take place in the exhibition space Clubrooms until the 6th November, opening hours Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm.
Famous people are expected exemplary behaviour and are judged in a different way compared to other mortals. Belenguer with his minimalist portraits attempts to focus on the human being that lies behind this image of the perfect woman. With splashes of paint intends to reflect that part of our life we cannot control and is the feature that makes us all earthly. These series of portraits were exhibited at the group show No Soul For Sale at the Tate Modern in May 2010. Belenguer, based in London for over ten years, last year created a project called TESTIMONIES in collaboration with the BBC and the London Olympics and Paralympics as part of the Cultural Olympiad 2012.
Ryan Stanier, director of The Other Art Fair and curator of the exhibition, said: “Having previously worked with Belenguer at The Other Art Fair last November, I am excited to announce his solo exhibition. Hosted by The Office Group in the heart of Mayfair, this is a chance to showcase his work within the innovative space of the Clubrooms.”
“When Stanier invited me to an exhibition at the fashionable Mayfair area, explains Belenguer, I thought about how I could respond to an area of London where we find so many distinctive fashion houses like Chanel and Burberry in Bond Street, wonderful tailors in Saville Row and many of the best galleries in the world like Gagosian, Pace and Zwirner. I decided to be inspired by an icon in the world of fashion, and art, as Kate Moss and continue with a minimalist series of oil portraits of other women. Minimalism facilitates to remove values like status and other social and commercial labels to concentrate on the fact that we exist as another human being. “
