David Gill Gallery’s New Exhibitions: Maria Pergay and Lena Peters – David Gill Gallery is located in St. James’s (London) and it opened back in 2012. It focuses on exposing the work of some of the world’s most successful contemporary artists and designers. At this moment, this gallery wants to show the world the works of Maria Pergay (in her “Iconic” exhibition) and Lena Peters (” Saints and Spirits”) and it has been doing that since November 21.
Maria Pergay established her own style in a world of design where trends did not reflect her instincts, mainly working with stainless steel, earning its status as a central design and industrial material. She already has designed for famous fashion houses such as Christian Dior, Jacques Heim, Fendi or even Givenchy. Table “Marronnier” by Maria Pergay, 2015 (limited to 8 pieces and 4 A.P and made with hand sculpted bronze base, stainless steel with inlaid chestnut wood, and with a glass top)
Daybed “Flying Carpet” by Maria Pergay, 1968 (made with stainless steel, foam, fabric, and castors)
Cabinet “Drape B” by Maria Pergay, 2005 (limited to 8 pieces and made with stainless steel, ebony Macassar, and palm wood)
On the other hand, Lena Peters is a ceramicist whose works are truly inspired not only by folkloric narratives but also by mythology, history, and nature. Her work dances between the real and the unreal, creating illustrative objects which work to embody a narrative and it has been shown in several United Kingdom galleries, but they were first exhibited at David Gill Gallery back in November 2017 as part of “Vases and Vessels” exhibition, curated by Gianluca Longo.
