PayneShurvell presents
'Garage Door Paintings' by Andrew Curtis

27 September - 26 October 2016

Andrew Curtis produces images of suburban dissonance by blurring physical and psychological reality. Using our shared knowledge and preconceptions of suburbia, he questions contemporary notions of anomie, the abject and the exotic. For this new exhibition, Curtis presents six paintings in aluminium paint on raw canvas which refer 1:1 in scale and design to the subject of his photographs of garage doors which have been removed from their ‘frame’. He sees the way that garage doors are painted as echoing the intentions of mid-20th century abstract artists, whether minimal, expressive or optical. The private view will take place on Tuesday 27th September. If you'd like to attend, please email info@carousel-london.com. Other viewings will be by appointment only.

Ana Milenkovic: Selected Paintings

6th April - 4th May 2016

We are pleased to announce Ana Milenkovic’s first London solo paintings show curated by PayneShurvell. Milenkovic works across a wide range of media to create art that evokes surprising, provoking and multi-layered meanings. In the open-ended scenes and narratives of her paintings, objects lose their integrity and turn into containers for encoded thoughts and symbols. Milenkovic combines randomly collected photographic collages to reveal their visual and emblematic character. In this show, these delicate paintings are the result of an extensive collection of these photographic images and an elaborate series of sketches. The Private View will be on Wednesday 6th April at 6pm.

4th - 29th March


Carousel is pleased to present ‘Pet Rocks’, an exhibition of new works by Jacob Yarwood and Felix Treadwell.

The enigmatic characters of Treadwell’s paintings and the constructed still-life compositions in Yarwood’s work combine to reflect a perspective of their youthful generation, through distinctive methods of colour and form. Private view: 7pm Thursday 3rd March.

Hannah Brown

30th September - 21st October


'Hannah Brown's paintings capture the brooding nature of English landscape.' Critic's Choice, Time Out.
Hannah Brown's landscapes focus on lesser known views: unseen corners of fields, small clearings, walking paths . Working within and against the omnipresent legacy of the English landscape tradition, her work centres on the psychology of the English landscape and how we interact with the natural environment and bring it into the domestic sphere.


Oleg Tolstoy 7th - 25th September 2015

Oleg Tolstoy

7th - 25th September 2015

"The bustle and energy of London nightlife hums through this photographic exhibition, capturing the troubled times caused by London’s rapidly changing economy and the rise of ride-sharing apps.The dark portraits of night drivers are permeated by a poignant reflective light. They are juxtaposed with semi abstract images of traffic and taxis and a sound-rich video installation."


Taline Temizian 5th to 28th August 2015

Taline Temizian

5th to 28th August 2015

Taline is an artist born out of her personal & historic hardship. She works deep into the early hours of the morning constantly producing dream like epics often based on plays and old stories.

Towels Blue 19th - 24th August 2015

Towels Blue

19th - 24th August 2015

There is an affinity between the way Christopher McSherry and John Robertson approach making art. Both very much studio-based, the artists' work shows a belief in letting the materials, the actual stuff of art-making, take the lead in the production of their objects. There is playfulness at work, a mobility. Things are made and moved around, arranged until something unexpected happens, some special quality emerges and the work becomes worthy of being called a work."


Tending to Infinity 11th - 24th July 2015

Tending to Infinity

Lousie Cattrell: Another Place 15th April - 29th May 2015

Lousie Cattrell: Another Place

15th April - 29th May 2015

The paintings of Louise Cattrell haunt the imagination with their mysterious beauty. They appear as timeless as the landscapes they depict, and yet somehow distinctly contemporary. Each work is as exquisitely painted as anything by JMW Turner, and seems to show a world that still looks just as it must have done in his day - the unchanging rocks, seas, hills and skies of the long ago past - but there is always another dimension to Cattrell's art. She is a romantic for the twenty-first century."Laura Cumming, Chief Art Critic, The Observer"


Urban Tales 6th March - 10th April

Urban Tales

6th March - 10th April

Red House November 19th 2014

Red House

November 19th 2014

‘A work of art will be true to life when its existence, its very form embodies the truth of the artist’s life.’

In the line, the texture, the paint, the graffiti of city walls, a story unfolds. Sometimes a fleeting glimpse, sometimes a trace memory - manifesting what needs to be said; to be made visible.


Thomas Lumley 18th - 22nd November 2014

Thomas Lumley

18th - 22nd November 2014

Influenced by film noir, Adam Curtis montages and the early 20th century art of Paul Nash and Graham Sutherland, the distinct and emotive oil paintings of Thomas Lumley stand between portraiture, abstraction and landscape.
