This Is Dedicated To The One I Love

THIS IS DEDICATED TO THE ONE I LOVE presents three contemporary artists whose practice evidences a visual communication with a key family member or companion.

HIROYUKI DOI is a Japanese draughtsman whose concentric map-pings form a meditated response to the loss of a brother. These hypnotic and monochromatic essays take up to three months to complete and honour the memory of their relationship which continues in this, its newly discovered form.

By contrast, the figurative oeuvre of NIGEL KINGSBURY employs apparently simple mark-making to create an ethereal and effortless community. The predominantly female forms are based on women close to the artist, those who care for him and for whom he cares, transformed into gestures of love.

The intimate testimonies of HARALD STOFFERS reveal the graphic inner life of this conceptual art-maker. Addressed to a mother with whom he shares his primary relationship, these text-based works adapt the conventions of letter-writing in tiny shards of paper and scrolls up to 12 ft in length.
