Featuring aunique series of photograms and installation of stoneware ceramics, by Venezuelan artist, Lucia Pizzani. Pizzani’s body of work includes historical and literary narratives around femininity, interpreting temporal discourses within the biological continuity of the natural world. Vanessa da Silva’s sculptures generate the impression of uprooted bodies that appear to constantly move and mutate. Born in Brazil and living in London, da Silva’s work explores human migration and belonging through her sculptural bodies.

Ed Moses – California Cool: 13th April – 7th May 2022
JD Malat Gallery is delighted to introduce the solo exhibition California Cool by Ed Moses. The exhibition will feature new, unseen works by the legendary late artist. As a central figure in the LA art scene, and where he was based until his death, Moses is thought to be one of the most experimental and prolific painters to have come out of the West Coast following the Post-War years. California Cool includes 19 new works, displaying Moses’ signature style of wide, impactful brushstrokes and evocative gridwork. His style presents his personalized West Coast aesthetic and his expansion on the endless possibilities of abstraction.
