Eleven’s ‘Christmas Salon’ exhibition is now open through 18th January 2014. Be sure to drop by to check out a lot of never before seen works.
A range of paintings, photographs, prints, drawings and sculptures coalesce to form this dynamic exhibition. The varied display for this exhibition originates from the famous ‘Salon de Paris’ where only the most influential artists were presented in this high profile exhibition. Similarly, Eleven will present an extensive wall-to-wall exhibition unveiling some of the latest work by the artists along with some never before seen pieces. Highlighting each artist’s style, this exhibition creates an enticing visual experience and ideal occasion to acquire new works.

Sara Berman’s paintings will adorn the gallery walls for the first time in the Christmas Salon which opens next week.
Childhood memory, fantasy, desire and fear are all explored through Berman’s paintings. Employing her discerning eye for sartorial detail and visual codes, Berman’s work is infused with strong visual and emotional content. Using clothing as platform through which we view identity, her works explore iconography and value systems which resonate through our lives and impact both the way we see and represent ourselves. Berman’s paintings remind us to consider the art of the constructed identity. In a world where lives are carefully curated for public consumption, and visual codes so carefully constructed and displayed, Berman’s energetic, painterly works are both sympathetic and evocative displays of our cultural nostalgia for that which does not quite exist.

We will be featuring a couple of Jeff Kowatch’s colourful abstract paintings in the ‘Christmas Salon’
Kowatch’s abstract paintings blurred masses organically float through undulating colours. His strong aptitude for colour is evident as he harmoniously creates compositions which immediately conjure an emotive response in the viewer. His painting Shoal of Whales is inspired by Moby Dick and Fire Island informed by Kowatch’s recent summer spent in a house on Long Island, NY opposite of Fire Island.
