Exhibition showcasing colourful sculptures, prints and drawings celebrating playfulness, experimentation and the act of coming together.
Alice Irwin: Chinwag at Pitzhanger Gallery marks a pivotal moment in Irwin's career, being her first major exhibition in a London-based public gallery. As part of Pitzhanger's programme to showcase emerging artists, this exhibition introduces Irwin's latest series, marked by dynamic movement and vivid, layered colours, blurring the boundaries between print, sculpture and drawing. Irwin's works create a welcoming space for conversation, reflecting on themes of social interaction and the human experience.
Drawing inspiration from Pitzhanger Manor's history as Sir John Soane's residence, where he hosted notable guests, Irwin's art challenges the social norms of his time. Her pieces, varying in shape, size and colour, stimulate discussions about the diversity of personalities in social settings and the changing dynamics of social hierarchies.
This showcase features a range of Irwin's new works, including vibrant screenprints and etchings, alongside sketches and studies that reveal her detailed process. A highlight of the exhibition is her 'Peeps' series – human-like 3D figures that demonstrate her innovative approach to materials. Originally displayed at Trinity Buoy Wharf, the exhibition includes two newly commissioned Peeps in brushed metal, exemplifying her continued evolution in sculptural form. Curated by Svetlana Panova, the exhibition is a testament to Irwin's growing prominence in the contemporary art world.
