exploring 'transparency' with x-ray technologies
X-POSÉ: material and surface @ artopia gallery
Over 6,000 people, in the last two weeks, have seen Hugh Turvey’s extraordinary exhibition of Xograms at the OXO Gallery, Tower Wharf. Now it is heading down-river for an extended run at Artopia, the newly opened gallery on St. Katharine Docks.
Hugh is Artist in Residence at the British Institute of Radiology. An antidote to popular culture’s obsession with the superficial, his meticulously crafted work bridges the gap between art and science, graphic design and pure photography. An exploration of material and surface, X-POSÉ is an exhibition of transcendent imagery that gifts us an extraordinary way of seeing and knowing.
“we are very excited that Hugh has chosen to place these beautiful and beguiling images with us for his show extension in London, following the amazing public acclaim he received at The OXO Gallery. Hugh Turvey is an artist at the top of his tree in this discipline and if you didn’t get to see his work on the South Bank, this is the final opportunity before it goes on national tour. See life as you’ve never quite seen it before through the astonishing X-ray visions of Hugh Turvey, the X-ray Artist.” Kieron Blair, co-founder of Artopia

Artopia Gallery, Ivory House, St. Katharine Docks, E1W A1T
