“At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance, and there is only the dance."
    Burnt Norton TS Eliot (1935)

16th - 20th October 2013

Offsite exhibition at The Gallery in Redchurch Street, London E2 showing work by our portfolio of international artists from the UK, USA and Europe.

“As Rilke said: Through every human being, unique space, intimate space, opens up to the world…” From Poetics of Space, Gaston Bachelard (La Poétique de l'Espace, 1958) a phenomenological interrogation into the meaning of spaces which preoccupy poetry, intimate spaces like a home, and expansive spaces such as landscapes and forests.

This exhibition explores this theme by presenting new work by 12 international artists including Eberhard Ross, Thomas Zika, Marco Crivello, Sonia Stanyard, Martha Winter, Danielle Van Broekhoven, Ingrid Simons, Anne Berlit, Cara Enteles, Barbara Burns, Susanna Bauer, Rachael Plummer.

Nature as Mind; Mind as Nature

10th - 14th October 2012

Offsite exhibition at The Gallery in Redchurch Street, London E2 showing new work by our portfolio of international artists from UK, USA and Europe.

Nature as Mind; Mind as Nature brings together an exciting and diverse range of work from 12 artists observing, questioning and reflecting on the natural world. In a climate of environmental uncertainty, nature is often portrayed as a threatening force to be controlled and subjugated. Yet as science remaps our understanding of reality, it reveals an infinitely more complex web of connections and interdependence – a world where man is inextricably woven into the texture of nature and indeed the whole universe with an implicit responsibility to the world we inhabit. Artists included, Ellen Bell, Erin Burn, Margaret Cahill, Marco Crivello, Cara Enteles, Linda Felcey, Eberhard Ross, Sonia Stanyard and new artists Brendan Jamison, Martha Winter and Thomas Zika and guest artist Nick Bodimeade.

Genius Loci: A Sense of Place

It defines our personal stories, weaving us into the fabric of a greater narrative - our relationship to our home, Earth.

Artists exhibited: Ellen Bell, Erin Burns, Margaret Cahill, Marco Crivello, Cara Enteles, Linda Felcey, Philippa Karakashian, Rachel Plummer, Eberhard Ross, Sonia Stanyard, Helen Turner and introducing Nick Bodimeade (Painting), Brendan Jamison (Sculpture), Tolly Nason (Glass), Tessa Lyons (Large-scale Drawing), Tania Rutland (Painting)

Ellen Bell: Camera Obscura and Other Stories

24th - 29th May 2011

Offsite solo exhibition at The Gallery in Redchurch Street, London E2 by conceptual artist Ellen Bell.

Camera Obscura n. a darkened box or room with a lens or aperture for projecting the image of an external object on to a screen inside. (Latin. = dark chamber.) (The Concise Oxford Dictionary, 1995)

Bell works with photographs from which she selects figures and objects with which to tell her stories. Bell encourages us to make connections, to find relationships with these universal images of family, of home and of childhood. Bell uses dark narratives to fill the templates – narratives that, as the title suggests are boxed in. This is a series of works about memory – memory that is fragmentary, unreliable - certainly not something that could claim to be truth, or indeed absolute, even within a family.

This collection also features a series of abstracted text pieces. They are conversations, ‘night murmurs’ Bell calls them, voices in the dark, repeated phrases that reveal a certain spoken banality that often follows deep feeling. Again, this universality – we have all been there – the over use of the word ‘love’, the terms of endearment, which from a distance appear hackneyed and yet are used with such fervour, such rapture at the time, in those dark, hidden rooms.

Marco Crivello: Chronochromie; The Colour of Time


19th - 23rd October 2010

Offsite solo exhibition at The Air Gallery, Dover Street, London, W1 showing new works by Marco Crivello

Chronochromie: The Colour of Time is Marco Crivello’s first solo exhibition since the successful Possible Worlds show held by Four Square FIne Arts at The Air Gallery in 2008.

For over two decades, improvisation has been at the core of Crivello’s painterly exploration – an approach the artist describes as inexhaustible. The 23 new paintings in this show deepen and refine a language, emerging between form and formlessness, with notable shifts in scale and perspective. A more fluid narrative prevails, where the colour of time is literally the evidence and interplay of liquid processes, intimating patterns and formations in nature, seen from space or under a microscope.

Eberhard Ross: The Space Between


25th - 30th May 2010


Offsite solo exhibition at The Gallery in Redchurch Street, London E2 by German artist Eberhard Ross

“Music is the space between the notes” – Debussy

The Space Between is the first solo exhibition by Eberhard Ross in the UK. A mid-career artist with a well-established reputation in Germany, Eberhard Ross likens himself to “a scientist in art”, an odd coupling you might think, given that received wisdom so often sets these two fields at opposite ends of the spectrum. But conventions can mislead and behind this perceived divide- a relatively recent construct of Europe’s Enlightenment - is a history rich with fertile overlaps, where Da Vinci is the archetypal embodiment of it’s possibilities.

As art historian, Professor Martin Kemp, world authority on Leonardo and champion of the current cross discipline dialogue between science and art, points out, “shared intuitions about the natural world drive the pursuits of artists and scientists” and for each, how questions are framed owe as much to imagination as fact. Whilst paradigms change, art and science, neither being homogenous categories, remain and have always been engaged in a common aim to confront universal questions.

How does an artist’s parallel and intuitive encounter with events at the frontiers of science translate into art? The film ‘Organic Geometries’ provides a window onto Ross’ practice, as we see him work on paintings from the Speicher series. And launched alongside this exhibition The intricate lattice which emerges, appears to follow an inner organic need and unfolding intuitive logic, growing and animating the surface, where the mass of interconnecting lines are paradoxically additions and subtractions. 

Marco Crivello: Possible Worlds

8th - 13th September 2008

Offsite solo exhibition at The Air Gallery, Dover Street, London W1 (Upper Level) showing new works by Marco Crivello

Possible Worlds is the first solo show by Marco Crivello for 3 years. In this exhibition the artist explores his "improvised landscapes" within the tondo, oval and asymetrical forms. Marco Crivello’s paintings are grounded in the natural world, a world where the familiar is finely balanced at the point where our perceptions may yield to abstraction. In his new body of work ‘Possible Worlds’ he continues to mine a rich seam whose aesthetic appeal owes much to an improvised way of working, where a broad palette of materials transmute to mimic natural formative processes, evoking impressions of frozen activity from a remote geological past, or of a fluid elemental universe ceaselessly becoming.

Ellen Bell: Hard Words

8th - 13th September 2008

Offsite solo exhibition at The Air Gallery, Dover Street, London W1 (Lower Level) by Ellen Bell.

Hard Words is the first solo exhibition by Ellen Bell whilst being represented by Four Square Fine Arts. Bell has created a series of text ‘drawings’ that offer both alternative meanings and readings of a series of prosaic nouns, verbs and adjectives. These drawings, fastidiously formed to represent the formal page layouts of dictionaries, phrase books and thesauri read as stream of consciousness lists peppered with archaic, long-lost phraseology heavy with alliteration. The raised words of these works literally animate the language as they jut off the page, casting rows of sharp, urgent, tick-like shadows.

Bell is attempting to stretch the limitations of written language as a means of intimate and impassioned expression. Words such as ‘mother’, ‘daughter’, ‘son’, ‘wife’, ‘home’ and ‘family’ are offered up via a kind of serendipitous, scalpel-led, culling of selected tomes from which the found words are heavily redolent of the mind-sets and prejudices of the time.
