Forthcoming Exhibitions—June-December 2005
Spectrum Fine Art, one of the most exciting London gallery launches of the last 12 months maintains its role as a high profile mechanism promoting the most promising new British and international artists, with the announcement of the following shows:
Dennis Morris –Dreamtime- From 8th June – 2nd July 2005
Private View – 7th June 2005
This exciting exhibition will contain images taken by the renowned photographer Dennis Morris whilst away in the Australian outback. Morris’ deliberately focuses on the naturalistic aspect of the landscape and its inhabitants thus marking a stylistic change in direction from his celebrated reportage based exposes of the past that including the exhibition ‘Destroy’ consisting of shots of Sid Vicious and Johnny Rotten, this exhibition attracted much widespread media attention.
Brian Love - Multiphasic - From Friday 8th July – 31st July 2005
Private View – 7th July 2005
Multiphasic is the first major solo exhibition from the Glaswegian Brian Love who came to prominence at the BP Portrait Awards where his torso study ‘Window To The Soul ‘was highly commended and is now featured as the centrepiece of this exhibition. Love’s broad base of work plays with a variety of disciplines including spray can painting, traditional painting and mixed media output including one striking work comprising fifty two differently scaled life studies dramatically ranging in size from postage stamp dimensions upwards. Love is a member of Glasgow Independent Studios and regularly contributes to the RGI and the RSA.
Pii & Gerry Burns – From 1st September – 17th September 2005
Private View 31st August 2005
Dutch artist Pii is featuring a site specific sculpture for the show entitled ‘Laptop Dinner’. The remarkable installation recreates a private supper, complete with dining table, lamps and cutlery framing 12 bronze cast laptops. Instead of a screen the laptops are filled with different kinds of basic food, principally rice or corn, which represent some of the biggest regions on earth. Pii combines his own self proclaimed obsessive interest in the most simple of processes—the transformation of energy or matter via the latest achievements in high technology. His challenging and highly original body of work often focuses on this subject. Past successes have included an installation of multiple human stomachs, cast in aluminium, packaged together like a warped Matryoshka doll, entitled “Does My Stomach Eat Another Human Stomach?”.
Gerry Burns, winner of the 2003 Daily Mail ‘Not The Turner Prize’ for his painting ‘Birkenhead Park’ presents work which addresses the concept of ‘the original’ and ‘the copy’. He delivers a series of original paintings initially appearing inaccessible as a result of being completely shrouded in brown paper. Closer examination reveals a small photographic snapshot of the image stapled to the paper, juxtaposing the genuine with the imitation.
Spectrum Fine Art –June-December Exhibitions
Peter Sorrell Solo Show – 22nd September 5th October 2005
Private View – 31st August 2005

Andrei Zadorine Solo Show – 7th October – 21st October 2005
Private View – 6th October 2005
Belarussian painter Andrei Zadorine features a series of new work. Zadorine is known for his work surrounding melancholic childhood memory; stemming from memories of his upbringing in Eastern Europe. Zadorine cites the sculpture of Alberto Giacometti as an influence identifying with the attempt to portray the soul through abstracted figure. Zadorine left his homeland in 1998 to settle in Holland and exhibits internationally, with his paintings being shown in the USA and throughout Europe.
Antonio Riello Solo Show – 27th October – 11th November 2005
Private View – 26th October 2005
Italian sculptor Antonio Riello is exhibiting a series of site specific sculptures for his solo show at Spectrum Fine Art. His work focuses primarily on ‘Objects Of War’ based on the premise that weaponry and arms are the only mass manufactured objects created solely with functionality in mind. Riello contends that aesthetic design is now such a forgone prerequisite to mass produced objects of our contemporaneous society.

Private View – 17th November 2005
