Ali Banisadr: At Once

Best things in life are free

The directors of Blain|Southern are delighted to present At Once, an exhibition of oil paintings created over the last two years by the celebrated New York-based artist Ali Banisadr. This is his first-ever solo show in the UK and includes a 7-metre long triptych, his largest work to date. Oscillating between the abstract and the figurative, Banisadr’s paintings feature fantastical landscapes populated with grotesque hybrids in a perpetual state of frenzy. These characters – conflations of animal, god, machine and human – are deftly captured in whirling, exuberant brushstrokes. Frequently there is a sense of a heaven and earth: in the lower half, we witness temporal struggles, physical conflict and angst, while above the characters seem more at peace; as if they have surrendered themselves to the ether. Opening hours: - Mon-Fri: 10am-6pm - Sat: 10am-5pm This event is free and entry is on a first come first served basis, so it can't be guaranteed. We need your card details to store the event information in your profile, but rest assured, we won't charge you a penny.
