'Love's Body': Allegory + metaphor in the ‘private language’ works on paper
20 Nov 2015 to 6 Jan 2016
New Street Gallery, 38 New Street, Plymouth PL12NA

The Lenkiewicz Foundation are presenting an exhibition at New Street Gallery of works on paper from Lenkiewicz’s 1970’s relationship Projects. The exhibition coincides with the publication for the first time of the related Project notebooks on Love and Romance, Love and Mediocrity, and Orgasm on our website.

These original works on paper showcase Lenkiewicz’s innovative and startling ‘private language’ of what he termed ‘aesthetic notes’ – using text and colour metaphors to explore human physiology in a state of crisis. A new essay will explore the influence on the painter’s ideas of the book Love’s Body, written by Norman O. Brown in 1966.

The exhibition will be open between 20 Nov 2015 and 6 Jan 2016 on Thurs–Sun ONLY.
Holiday closing times: Mon 23 Dec – Wed 2 Jan.
