Unsurprisingly, a large proportion of Tracey Neuls fans work in and around the arts. Tracey's deep love for it is apparent in her shoe designs, some of which literally look like sculptures (and inspire similar adoration).
We are lucky to be situated in the heart of London, with its healthy, thriving art scene, and below are a few of our favourite exhibitions this week.
Starting our route in Fitzrovia - home to a host of young galleries, we then weave round Lexington St. and on to Kings Cross for the David Hockney endorphin rush at Lightroom, which is open until late.
Post-pandemic, the often ramshackle dwellings of old Fitzrovia have been repurposed as contemporary art galleries in a newly flourishing art scene. Unmarked doors, steep stairs, and original fireplaces keep the area's enigmatic, historic spirit alive, reignited by the works on display by exciting early career artists.
Darren Flook: Marcus Cope - Got Reason
Today is the last day to catch this exhibition of hypnotic, heavily-detailed fever-dream paintings by London based Marcus Cope. Gritty, everyday mundanity, violence, and banality are elevated into intoxicating vision.
Darren Flook 106 Great Portland Street, London W1 until March 4th
Alice Black Gallery: Vincent Black - Studio 29b
Friend of Tracey Neuls and one of our most cherished shoe ambassadors, Alice opened her new gallery space in Fitzrovia this month with an exhibition by artist Vincent Black. These are earnest, expressive paintings, exploring aspects of materiality and the human psyche.
Alice Black 7 Windmill street, W1T 2JD until March 23rd
Castor Gallery: Clyde Hopkins - Paintings 1989 - 1993
Castor Gallery presents a major survey exhibition of Sussex born abstractionist Clyde Hopkins. Head of painting at Winchester and Chelsea for much of his life, and co-founding the Art in Perpetuity Trust studios and gallery in Deptford, Hopkins had a strong influence on subsequent generations of painters. Dissonant elements coexist in almost harmony, in these robust, large-scale abstract paintings.
Castor Gallery 12-14 Whitfield Street W1T 2RF until March 4th
Karsten Schubert: Frank Kent - Days
Royal Academy Schools Alumni Frank Kent, presents a delicate set of tabletop sculptures, formed and assembled from found objects of characterful, enigmatic allure. Redolent of Joseph Cornell assemblages, each element has been cherished and hand-treated to become a cog in these fragile, structural machines. Much work is done in cutting, carving, painting and moulding the features into miniature, stage-like arenas, the finely-tuned elements of which balance and quiver in front of you as you move over the creaking, ancient floorboards of Gallery Karsten Schubert.
Karsten Schubert 46 Lexington Street until March 11th
Lightroom: David Hockney - Bigger & Closer (not Smaller & Further Away)
We recently wrote a feature on this new David Hockney exhibition as it is neighbour to our Coal Drops Yard store, and seems to correspond beautifully to our colour vision for 2023. Step into David Hockney's world, (and head) as an audio visual display guides you through his giant landscapes, narrated by the artist himself in his famous Bradford drawl.
Lightroom Lewis Cubutt Square until June 4th open late until 9pm or 10.30pm
