Frestonian Gallery, London

Laurence Owen’s work moves effortlessly between mediums — and in the case of this exhibition displays (and in one instance combines) ceramics and painting. Graduating from Falmouth College of Art in 2005 and the Royal Academy Schools, London in 2015. Owen has been awarded several solo exhibitions of his work dating back to 2009. His work has recently featured in exhibitions at the Whitechapel Gallery and at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool when selected for the John Moores Prize for Painting (2016).

Founded by Rollo Campbell & Matt Incledon and located in Holland Park, London W11, Frestonian Gallery is an exciting new addition to the London and international art scene. The gallery’s focus is the promotion of both modern and contemporary art and defines its programme with the continuity of artistic endeavour in mind – developing an independent and unbiased approach without undue adherence to the whims and divisions of the art market and prevailing fashions.

Frestonian Gallery presents an exciting and diverse exhibition programme, as well as working in partnership with institutions, independent curators, and academics in realising both on and off-site creative projects.
