Delighted to be represented by newly launched Aleph Contemporary

‘ALEPH CONTEMPORARY is a new gallery where one can begin a collection of today’s great artists.

The name Aleph is inspired by Jorge Luis Borges. In Borges’ story, the Aleph is a point in space that contains all other points. Anyone who gazes into it can see everything in the universe from every angle simultaneously, without distortion, overlapping, or confusion.

The origins of our name express our commitment to the importance of dialogue, inventive creativity and the value of experiencing and understanding art.

As a team, we are particularly interested in artists with curatorial and educational experience who are continuing to develop their own voice. Clients can be confident when buying from Aleph Contemporary that they are choosing from a pool of highly qualified and innovative artists.

Aleph Contemporary organises exhibitions and events where people can meet the artists and see new work. Exhibitions are curated and feature a catalogue. We also invite journalists, curators, art historians, art advisors, and artists to participate in a relaxed salon atmosphere to create uniquely dynamic dialogues. These talks will be filmed and brought online.’

Artefact is very proud to present our first show of 2018: English Gothic. PV Fri 12th Jan 7.30 – 10 pm

English Gothic is a new series of paintings by Birmingham based artist Paul Newman. The works imaginatively combine motifs and reference points from 18th & 19th-century landscapes with 20th-century industry, architecture and Gothic horror. These references create a tableau, the figurative elements become props in a stage, a landscape in flux.

The imagery is heavily biographical drawing from various memories throughout Newman’s life. Newman’s fathers white Ford Escort van, the Salisbury wing in the national gallery, rural walks. The work may generate political and cultural themes around relics of heritage and urban/rural environment.

Doors open from 7.30pm until 10.30pm. English Gothic by Paul Newman will be on show until Saturday 3rd February. Child-friendly

Open Wednesday and Saturday 11am -5pm  Thursday and Friday 11am – 10pm * Closed at 6pm on the First Friday of the month for the taxi to Digbeth First Friday  1464 Pershore Rd, Stirchley, Birmingham B30 2NT We are wonderful mix of poetry, art, home-made cakes and coffee in Stirchley, Birmingham.
