CLAIRE BARROW draws, paints, sculpts and creates one-off neon pieces. Barrow often draws on historical subject matter and classical themes like death, baptism and rebirth, yet modern life and youth cultural references feature with equal importance. In May 2016 M.Goldstein presented "The Bed, The Bath & The Beyond", the young artist's first solo art show. Barrow has gained notoriety as one of Britain's most provocative and challenging fashion designers, her presentations at LFW incorporate artworks on clothing. We have a selection of paintings and neon light pieces available to view and for purchase.
REGINALD ALAN WESTAWAY (RAW) b.1928 d.2008 was a talented recluse whose main body of work was figurative. He was a prolific draughtsman, drawing on every available scrap of paper from between the paragraphs of a letter to the reverse of a biscuit packet. He experimented with Constructivist and Abstract painting, wrote unpublished folk music and even attempted home taxidermy. His attire was 'maintained' in the extreme, so that mending was supplanted by the creation of art from patchwork and visible stitching. The most extreme example is a jumper where decades of mending take the form of a running goose. In 2013 RAW, Dirk Bell and Nathaniel Lee-Jones of M.Goldstein collaborated in an exhibition entitled "Majetek uslechtilého muze" (Property of a Gentleman) at SVIT gallery in Prague, an installation combining new works by Bell, original works by Westaway and esoteric, crossover objects chosen by Lee-Jones, using mirrors to "experience the reappearance of Westaway".
