EXHIBITION: Andro Semeiko: Le Grand Charmer at Phoenix Gallery - Privet view 24 May (

( Friday 25 May - Sat 07 July, FREE Drawing on techniques and motifs both from the history of painting and its current precedents, Georgian born artist, Andro Semeiko’s painting-based practice extends into drawing, sculpture and installation. Constructing multilayered visual narratives, these elements operate as props for a Mise-en-scène or theatrical setting and are often site-specific, referencing the history, legends and architecture of the place he is exhibiting.

Here, he takes inspiration from a time when the river Exe was tidal and the city was a busy port. Portraits refer to works in the neighboring Royal Albert Memorial Museum, and wall drawings are inspired by Exeter’s Roman fortifications, medieval underground passageways and neo-classical architecture, including that of Exeter Phoenix itself.
