Lucas Price "Dumb Poetry" at Lazarides Rathbone in London

Lucas Price makes his debut appearance at Lazarides Rathbone with a major new solo exhibition entitled Dumb Poetry. Using a combination of photorealism, hard-edged abstraction and text, the London-based artist has created a new series of paintings, drawings and sculptures. The exhibition deconstructs the traditional still life and opens up an intuitive line of enquiry into the complex relationships between object and language. Price's latest paintings combine a series of loaded objects, including basketballs, tyres and fire extinguishers, alongside short bursts of open-ended language. From his earliest paintings the artist's work has incorporated the use of text and in these most recent works this idea is again brought into play alongside a series of harshly-lit sculptural forms. Lucas Price "Dumb Poetry" will be on view until September 10 at Lazarides, 11 Rathbone Place, London, W1T 1HR.
