Modern Tone

Jesse Wine

The Sunday Painter Gallery is pleased to present Modern Tone, a solo exhibition of new work by London based artist Jesse Wine. Taking a medium-sized leaf from the 2010 Picasso ‘Mediterranean years’ exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery Britannia Street site, Jesse Wine has transformed the rather more modest sized Sunday Painter space into a museum style viewing chamber in which to experience, whilst edging around in a legally-complicit gap, a new body of sculptures and a one-off replica of Picasso’s 1951 painting Les Pigeonnes Perches the artist has had commissioned.

With the selection of sculptures that includes a faux-marble sagging bottom and a ceramic pot that seems to be alluding to some vague primitive culture sitting atop a colossal plinth alongside the cost-price Picasso replica an odd array of domesticated art-objects have been elevated to uneasy heights.
