None of my ideas seem to come from dreams. More often they seem to come from when I am most awake. – Geoff McFetridge
Ivory & Black Soho proudly presents “Around Us & Between Us”, the first solo exhibition in London since 2005 by the Los Angeles based artist Geoff McFetridge – A multidisciplinary artist without creative boundaries who’s life work ranges from poetry to installation, painting to graphic design and many other practices in between. For his “Around Us & Between Us” exhibition, Geoff has created a series of 10 new acrylic paintings on canvas on his distinctive and reductive style, giving each different subject the same treatment and refinery. In the artist’s own words:
Images are central to my painting. The images are varied, while my treatment of them is very consistent. The imagery is refined to a point of anonymous functionality. The paintings are meant to feel as if they were pulled directly from the lexicon.I paint some things because they are things that I have seen, but more importantly, I believe they are things that the viewer has seen. I am painting from life, but not life purely found in the landscape, but the also psychological, mediated, and transcendental world that infects our consciousness.

Of a fish Ive never heard
That wouldn’t rather be a bird
To leave the water for the skies
And over seas and lakes it flies
- Geoff McFetridge
