Guggi exhibits at John Rocha store

October 28, 2010 by Kay

Guggi at John Rocha 15a Dover Street , London W1S 4LR

Until 25th November 2010

Guggi began his career as a musician with the cult band Virgin Prunes, notorious for their performative spectaculars on the European underground, before concentrating full time on painting. From the early tentative explorations in the mid 1980’s Guggi, primarily self-taught has evolved into one of the most accomplished and recognised painters of his generation.

Guggi’s most recent paintings mark a notable departure from the steady evolution of his work since he first exhibited his depictions of the common everyday objects in Kerlin Gallery in 1993. His distinctive motifs of bowls and other vessels portrayed with clean, neat lines have transformed through freer outlines giving his paintings the more spontaneous, instinctive energy of a painter truly confident within his practice.  The structure of these paintings has become more informal and abstract creating a deceptive simplicity that heightens their stillness and meditative presence.
