Sculpture Exhibitions: ‘Bloomsbury Stud: The Art Of Stephen Tomlin’ (2023)

Philip Mould & Co Films (June 2, 2023) – Starting off at Charleston House, where Stephen Tomlin’s friends, lovers, and sitters came together, this exhibition film traces Tomlin’s life and career, revealing the stories behind the artworks on display in ‘Bloomsbury Stud: The Art of Stephen Tomlin’, on view at the Philip Mould Gallery from 5th June until 11th August 2023.

Bloomsbury Stud The Art of Stephen Tomlin


Stephen Tomlin, the Bloomsbury group’s primary sculptor, immortalised the faces of Bloomsbury’s best-known characters, including Duncan Grant, Lytton Strachey and Virginia Woolf. With inexhaustible charisma, disarming good looks and undeniable talent, Tomlin captivated his contemporaries, and references to Stephen ‘Tommy’ Tomlin pepper countless biographies of 20th century figures.

However, until recently, that was where his story remained. Now, this exhibition aims to return Tomlin to the artistic spotlight where he belongs.

Feeding Consciousness – DOMINIC HARRIS

25 MAY—13 AUGUST 2023

Harnessing the magical, fantastical and the sublime, Harris invites the viewer to explore his intricately created worlds, igniting imagination and offering a glimpse of the infinite. Harris’ visual inventions have been digitally painted by hand through a painstaking process that is comparable to traditional oil painting, though his use of technology as a means to produce movement and interaction, creates an immediacy with the viewer that no ordinary still life ever could.

Art Gallery Exhibitions: ‘Altered Lands’ -Artist Jake Wood-Evans At Frevo NYC

frevonyc presents ‘Altered Lands’, the first show by British artist Jake Wood-Evans on US soil, an exhibition curated by one of Europe’s most exciting independent galleries, Unit London.

Jake Wood-Evans presents a conscious shift from figure towards landscape. With Altered Lands Wood-Evans explores references from eighteenth and nineteenth-century English artists, examining how these artworks communicate notions of transience, nostalgia, and intangibility through a contemporary lens.

With a focus on John Constable, Benjamin Williams Leader, and the overlooked landscape works of Gainsborough, Wood-Evans continues to unravel the thread that weaves through his entire practice, using the familiar as a tool to uncover something new.

Unit London is one of London’s leading independent, artist-led galleries. It was founded in 2013 by two young British artists, Joe Kennedy, and Jonny Burt. They had a vision of creating a gallery that champions and supports the world’s most gifted emerging artists in a manner that is open, inclusive, and accessible.
