On the evening of Thursday 18th May, D-Contemporary Gallery hosted the opening of an exhibition by artist Alexander James entitled All Icons Are False in aid of Gynaecological Cancer Fund.
Alexander James is a unique artist who for three decades has explored the liquid mechanics of water as a primary medium, without the use of any post production. He presented previously unseen works from his series Vanitas, Rosae and Dissolved Sadness, which was critically acclaimed at his Moscow exhibition, alongside new abstract floral works titled All Icons Are False. “In this new body of work,” he says, “I present a gothic homage to the stained glass window for the 21st century”.
Alexander James kindly donated a unique print from an analogue 8 x 10 inch film plate and presented it to Tamara Beckwith Veroni. He also donated 10% of all sales to Gynaecological Cancer Fund.
Chloe Delevingne said: “We felt that Alexander James’s work mirrored our work at the Gynaecological Cancer Fund – often feminine while maintaining great power – so the collaboration was a no-brainer. We are incredibly grateful to D-Contemporary for giving us this opportunity of a private view during the Chelsea Flower Show, which is a perfect setting for the Lady Garden Campaign”.
Mika Simmons added, “I am very grateful to D-Contemporary in Mayfair for offering the work of Alexander James to help fundraise for Gynaecological Cancer Fund. The funds raised will all go directly to key research at The Royal Marsden hospital which is being funded by our charity”.
The opening was a great success and the exhibition will run until 30th May, Monday to Saturday, 11am to 6pm, at D-Contemporary Gallery, 23 Grafton Street, London, W1S 4EY. We encourage everyone to explore Alexander James’ fantastic work.
