London.- the Poppy Sebire Gallery is proud to present “Danny Rolph: Kissing Balloons in the Jungle”, on view through March 24th. In his paintings, Danny Rolph samples disparate cultural and historical references, from kids’ clothes patterning to particle physics, producing non-hierarchical and chaotic abstract fields. For his second solo exhibition with Poppy Sebire, Rolph presents a selection of large acrylic paintings on canvas that continue his investigation into the language of collage. Unlike the nocturnal, saturated blues of Rolph’s multi-layered triplewall paintings, the pastel backgrounds of the expansive canvases evoke the light of day. Streaked and stained, their celestial hues are inspired by the skies of Tiepolo, just one of the artist’s broad-reaching sources.
