'a weak spot in the earth' opens tonight. Join us from 6 til 9 pm for Sara Barker's debut exhibition at The Approach. Taking influence from elements of 19th century Japanese design, where the concept of the ‘border’ is key, Barker employs thick outlines to create spaces where more curved and fluid lines are contained within. Mountains, clouds, rivers and the sea are often depicted within rectangles, themselves representing an artificial form not found in nature. During the 1800s in Japan, motifs such as these were granted auspicious qualities and a kind of poetry and mythology, reflecting intention, inspiration, and a world beyond the world. For this new body of work, there is a tension between drawing that manifests itself within three-dimensional space and the painted two-dimensional surface. The metalwork of these sculptures starts to form shapes, and perhaps letters, characters, and/or signs; the combination of assumed semi-pictorial surface and symbol become allegorical. The linguistic supplements the visual, binding as a final image. Image: detail of, 'unnatural council, hands in cold looked blue', 2017, Jesmonite, automotive paint, stainless steel rod

Join us tomorrow, 6–9pm, for 'a weak spot in the earth', Sara Barker's debut solo exhibition of new works at the gallery. Barker’s practice traverses and blurs the thresholds between sculpture, painting and drawing; using these disciplines, and in turn their associated materials and techniques, as a way to create space, both physically and metaphysically. Barker draws on inspiration from Modernist and Post-Modernist (and primarily feminist) writers, such as Virginia Woolf, Gertrude Stein, Doris Lessing, Hélène Cixous and Aya Kōda, whose text, Mirrors, supplies the first line of a newly imagined visual poem composed by Barker. Exhibition runs til 25 June. Image: detail of 'conjunctions, eclipses, oppositions, 2017, aluminium rod & sheet, canvas, oil paint, jesmonite.

Bill Lynch solo presentation, Frieze New York, Stand D5. Painting primarily onto salvaged plywood sheets, leaving areas raw and exposed, Lynch depicted landscapes and wildlife, cultural artefacts and mythical symbols with instinctive and direct brushstrokes and a psychological connection to his subject matter. The artist’s vested interest in Chinese painting is apparent in his confident gestures, combining a dry lambent brush and thick pasty paint. Making use of irregularities such as the knots and grain in the wooden support, Lynch merged the material of the surfaces with images creating an ambiguity between the physicality of the ground and his luscious pictorial visions. The fair runs til 7 May. Image: Bill Lynch, No title [Vase and African Statue], n.d., Oil on wood, 113 x 121.9 cm (detail)
