I want to use this space to acknowledge the senseless murder of George Floyd and stand with everyone demanding justice, and peacefully protesting police brutality and systemic racism. We're putting everything on pause for the day. I realise this action alone will not bring about any substantial change so if you have any ideas about how best to use this platform to be an ally during this time, please email me directly: [email protected]

You can seek justice for George Floyd by signing any of these petitions:

Color of Change
We Can't Breathe

Artist Spotlight: Stephen Appleby-Barr

Metivier4

Paintings by Canadian artist Stephen Appleby-Barr whose portraits are part of the Nicholas Metivier Gallery’s latest exhibition, About Face (which opened last night and runs to the end of the month). The show also includes the work of the incredible Charles Bierk who we featured last week and was kind enough to draw Appleby-Barr’s fantastic/fantastical paintings to our attention. More images below!
