  LAST CHANCE TO SEE NEIL FARBER, URSA MAJOR

Tomorrow, Saturday 14 January 2012

Join us for cappuccino and croissants, 10 am - 1 pm

Tomorrow is the last chance to see Ursa Major, a solo exhibition of new work by Neil Farber:

"The second show in Pippy Houldsworth's welcome return to a central location focuses on the phantasmal crowdscapes of Neil Farber, a mordantly witty painter who came to attention as part of the Winnipeg collective The Royal Art Lodge. Hundreds, sometimes thousands, of people emerge from acrylic and poured media, often with pools of gel for heads. They range from criminals to pigheads to the Fraternal Order of Peasants. I particularly like 'Untitled (Better Than)', which exploits the ghostliness of white gel to set up a dialogue between living people below and an ethereal cloud-crowd above, all of whom are murmuring words in which their heads are the 'O's, like vOices frOm beyOnd."

- Paul Carey-Kent, 'Top 10 London Shows', Saatchi Online
