From October 11 to November 23, Unit London presents, Kinesthesia, an exhibition of new works by American multidisciplinary artist, Dylan Gebbia-Richards. Viewers are encouraged to immerse themselves in his kaleidoscopic landscapes, comprised of canvas paintings and monumental waxworks.
Familiar and yet otherworldly, his organic forms are masked in artificial covers that appear to escape the canvas. With a scientific background, Gebbia-Richards’ works are born from a unique chemical reaction - where layers are applied repetitively to produce an ever-growing composition. ‘My works are their own landscapes’, says the artist: ‘Each piece is a microcosm of the natural world.’ Like nature, these works are given the freedom to evolve and become something greater beyond their physical and visible parts.
Kinesthesia follows Gebbia-Richard’s inclusion in last year’s critically acclaimed Unit London group exhibition, Looking for U, and The Beyond: Georgia O’Keeffe & Contemporary, a group exhibition at Crystal Bridges Museum that he was featured in. Alongside over 30 of O’Keeffe’s paintings, the prestigious exhibition showcased Gebbia Richards amongst 20 emerging artists focusing on similar themes. Omni, a floor to ceiling immersive work that featured in Georgia O’Keeffe & Contemporary, will be exhibited at Unit London this October. Once double in size, the other half of Omni was Dylan Gebbia-Richards, Trash Armstrong, 2019 acquired by the Weisman Foundation.
