Coutts Bank commission Video Paintings

For the last two years, Coutts bank on the Strand has been home to an impressive exhibition of artworks curated by art impresario Charles Saatchi. This exhibition drew to a close in October and Coutts tasked art consultants Full Circle to create a new exhibition of work that would be a worthy successor to Saatchi's. In response Full Circle has painstakingly assembled a superb exhibition entitled ‘Depth of Vision’. The exhibition comprises 34 works across a wide range of media, including a specially curated collection of video paintings by seven artists from the Open Gallery.

‘Unseen’ is a collection of 26 video paintings by Sarah Turner, Hilary Lawson, Alys Williams, Mark Nelson, Gabrielle le Bayon, Alexandre Bettler and Isabelle Inghilleri. Whilst wide-ranging in their subject matter, the works are strongly linked through their desire to draw the viewer into a closer examination of the intricate, marginal and often overlooked landscape of our visual encounters – the unseen.

If you would like to take a tour of the ‘Depth of Vision’ exhibition at Coutts or arrange for a private viewing of the ‘Unseen’ collection, please contact us.
