gowithYamo Presents: Kay Gasei’s Black Box Series
gowithYamo Presents: Kay Gasei’s Black Box Series is the latest exhibition organised by gowithYamo in partnership with artist Kay Gasei, showing at Coningsby Gallery from 25th-29th May.
Kay Gasei is a London-raised artist who explores themes of world mythologies, histories of people and cultures, psychoanalysis, social politics, the timelessness of cultural capital and philosophy. The artist’s eclectic style utilises a montage of drawn and painted details, characters and spaces to create a narrative whilst keeping an air of ambiguity.
The works featured are the musings of the black box that is Kay Gasei’s mind. gowithYamo Presents: Kay Gasei’s Black Box Series has granted the artist, who is constantly scribbling and doodling ideas, with the space and a chance to showcase the concept of a thought process over what is typically considered a ‘finished’ piece. Details are taken from Kay Gasei’s sketchbook pages and organic doodles added in situ to further express the spontaneity of the thought process, and the exhibition offers a unique insight into artistic process and development.
The exhibition will centre around 7 large canvases from Kay Gasei’s Black Box series, with 50 sketches displayed alongside to illustrate the artist’s creative process. All canvases and sketches will be on sale, and 10 ‘prototype’ drawings will be available via The Auction Collective, with bidding starting at £50 and 15% of the proceeds going to the charity Patients for Affordable Drugs.
