By Invisiblemadevisible @imv_streetart
Acerone & Art-El Gallery present Where is Iron John Exhibition Art-el Gallery have just announced details of the first solo exhibition in London from one of Bristol’s most exciting young visual artists to have emerged from the street art scene, Acerone (Luke Palmer).
Entitled 'Where is Iron John?', Acerone’s new body of work depicts images from his exploration of masculinity and transitions into manhood, inspired, informed and twisted from the iconic Grimm Brothers ‘Der Eisenhans’ fairy tale and it’s unique review through folklore and mythology by Robert Bly.
From innovative photo-shoots Acerone reveals some of London's most classical statues and sculptures that evoke personal representations of the fragility, serenity and the complexity of modern masculinity and its inks to the male of yesteryear. Blended with images depicting the pace and expectation of inner-city modernity, double exposure images are replayed in paint and print creating works that are anchored in history whilst emphasising the pressure on the modern male.
Opening night Thursday 11th October 6pm - 10pm
Then open Friday 12th October - Sunday 14th October 10am - 7pm
The Rag Factory - 16-18 Heneage Street - Brick Lane - London - E1 5JL
