past exhibition | Miroslav Pomichal: Living Like a God | 22 September - 16 October 2016
Miroslav Pomichal: Living Like a God CANAL is delighted to present a solo installation of paintings, works on paper, woodcuts and ceramics by artist Miroslav Pomichal.

Pomichal will create a domestic interior of painted screens, a fantasy half-remembered Mittel European winter garden inspired by what he characterises as the 'quasi-spiritual drive' of Modernism and the 'flippant gaiety' of the 1990s.

Pomichal's practice mixes 'high' and 'low', parody and idealism, employing overt art historical reference, 'props'
and folk motifs, as well as a variety of media, including digital, oil, watercolour and ceramics.

Pomichal completed his MFA at Wimbledon School of Art. Based in London, he makes much of his work in Slovakia, and is currently rebuilding a medieval house in Slovakia which will eventually be used as a centre for residencies for British artists.

Preview: Thursday 22 September 6-8pm
First Thursday: Thursday 6 October 7-9pm. The evening features a performance of traditional Slovak music inspired by the exhibition, as well as a wine tasting. A rare opportunity to hear the unique sounds of the 'fujara' in London.

CANAL acknowledges the kind support of the Embassy of Slovakia in London.

Living Like a God can be viewed by appointment until 12 November.
