Ruth Marten 'A Treasure Hunt In A Lazar House' 13th Dec - 19th Jan, London

18 November 2012


Rococo 2012, Ink and collage with mylar on vintage print, 20.1cm x

We are extremely pleased to announce the opening of Ruth Marten's first show in London for four years. 'A Treasure Hunt In A Lazar House' will open in Bermondsey, London on December 13th.

Arranged literally as a treasure hunt amongst the fine prints on offer at London’s wonderful vintage print store Pure & Applied, Ruth Marten’s elegantly lubricious work is a joyful encounter. Using 17th-19th century prints from the flea markets of NYC as starting points, Marten looks for a hidden narrative and draws it out with super-subtle collaging, rearrangement, the finest hand with pen and ink and a lightness of touch that corresponds to John Heartfield’s proclaimed “tiny spot of colour” needed to turn a work into “art of a special kind”.
