The Alan Cristea Gallery is hosting two exhibitions to coincide with an exhibition of sculptures by Craig-Martin in the gardens of Chatsworth House, Derbyshire (until 29th June).

In No 34, Cork Street they are showing new work, including the series of twelve screenprints Objects of our Time as well as other works in varying media with a similar focus. The 17th century trompe-l’oeil painted panel of a violin hanging on a door which actually hangs on a door in the State Music Room at Chatsworth has inspired the artist to create a contemporary version. As one would expect the works are a veritable harmony of strong colours.

At No 31 Craig-Martin is the curator of a Master Prints show selected by himself and it is a heady and revealing mixture of 20th and 21st century printmaking by notable artists, including Jim Dine, Hockney and Richard Hamilton. The prints on view come from either his own collection or the gallery’s inventory.
