Marc Blane: Financial Statements
20 November – 6 December

The Autumn series at Gallery Petit has begun with an outstanding exhibition of Marc Blane’s Financial Statements.  It opened Tuesday night and was extremely well received by the large number of guests who attended.  The show continues until the 6th of December.

Financial Statements brings together Blane’s controversial series of  mixed media works which are hand-cut and defaced US dollars on Belgian linen – outlawed in the United States and showing in London for the first time. 

Wall Street JournalBlouin Art InfoLondon City Nights, Kensington and Chelsea Magazine, KingsRoad.co.uk and New York Waste have written fantastic articles on Blane’s work and the exhibition.

“Blane shows an impressive pragmatism in treating money as a potent creative fuel”

Richard Walker
11 December – 10 January

During the holiday season Gallery Petit will be exhibiting ‘Rip It Up and Start Again’, a sneak preview show featuring works by the British artist, Richard Walker.

This show is an opportunity to view a selection of Walker’s iconic 1970’s works which celebrate the British ‘Punk’ legacy and will form part of a larger exhibition scheduled for the Spring of 2014 .

Walker’s work successfully transports its viewers back to the wild anarchic spirit of ‘punk’ only moments away from where it all erupted on the Kings Road. The original screen prints, produced between 1975 and 1978, evoke the provocative and edgy spirit within which they were made.

Look for the article on Walker in the December issue of Sloane Square Magazine out this Saturday 23rd November.
