Ian Francis – Exodus
25 March – 6 May
Lazarides is pleased to announce the first European solo exhibition of new work by
Bristol based painter, Ian Francis. Using a combination of oil, acrylic and ink in his largescale
paintings, Francis brings his illusory vision to the Rathbone gallery.

Born in 1979, Ian Francis lives and works in Bristol. He studied BA Fine Art and
Illustration graduating in 2001 from the University of the West of England.
Inspired by the Internet, which he started using in 2001, it wasn’t until the attacks
on the World Trade Centre and Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that he obsessively
began to follow news coverage. His work incorporates a wide range of material
from the Internet, the News, TV and Films and is inspired by illustration hero Dave
McKeen along with contemporary writers such as Tom McCarthy.
This is Francis’s first solo exhibition in London and the UK, he has exhibited
widely throughout the US since 2007.

Usugrow
'Hasadhu, In The Night Before A Storm'
02.04.10 - 18.04.10
A skull, a flower, a macabre character drawn in a delicate line with black ink on white paper in a perfectionist style with complete commitment to detail. Whether its content is negative or positive, dark or light, what you will feel consistently with Usugrow’s work is the dignified beauty.

This exhibition will be Usugrow’s premier solo show in London. The new collection of work takes the viewer inside the mind of Hasadhu. Hasadhu is the fictional character created by Usugrow to reflect his own thoughts, almost an alter ego the artist becomes whilst drawing. When Usugrow produces his artwork, Hasadhu always travels inside his mind and this spiritual journey conducts the process of the work. Usugrow describes the art work itself as a big storm which will engulf everybody around him and the process of making artwork as the calm night before the storm. Those nights are a quiet and personal moment that he enjoys with happiness, clarity and peace. Through this work the artist wants to share that feeling with the audience, seen through the eyes of Hasadhu.

Signed copies of Usugrows book, Love Hate From JP, with FIFTY24SF Gallery, will also be available.

Cat Johnston Show

One of the highlight shows of this year so far has to be Cat Johnston's debut solo show at the Concrete Hermit, East London. I loved how she took the figure/toy theme, made all the embroidery and uniforms for the various animal-figures and then created very simple but effective dioramas to go with them! It really gave the 'soldiers' alot more depth in their character, when you are able to see them fighting with psychedelic, neo-geo planes and tanks in the background, duking it out with each other....I definitely want to own/see more of Cat's diorama work. I think I'm in Love!





Originally from Somerset and now residing in London, Cat has produced commissioned work for Levi’s, Vice, Virgin Airways, The Financial Times, Fenchurch and Addict. Recent Group shows include “Silver and Black”, The Archipelago Works, Sheffield, 2010, “Urban Art”, Selfridges, London, 2009 “Bara Volante”, The Prescription Gallery, Brighton, 2009 and “Scrawl Collective” at No Borders Contemporary Art, Hong Kong, 2009. Her Concrete Hermit show will be her debut solo show.

Dreamscape Paintings By Zhou Fan


Contemporary Chinese artist Zhou Fan's fantastical paintings make me jealous that my dreams don't look like this! Does it remind anybody else of Spirited Away?

A series of my paintings is based on dreams that I had as a child of many many jellyfish floating in the sky, some of which fell to the ground on parachutes and became mushrooms. These dreams had a strong impact on me, and I remember them vividly. Somehow I feel that it is easier to focus on dreams than reality. In one particular painting, there is a boy crying because he keeps things within him, is easily sad, and he refuses to face reality.




Zhou Fan is a rising star and is attracting some good attention - watch this space...
