IN THE NIGHT WE BELIEVE – Francisco Rodriguez online exhibition, until 3 June Posted on 13 May 2020


Our doors may be temporarily closed but we're really pleased to let you know that our colleagues at Cooke Latham Gallery, London - who represent our current Art in the Bar artist Francisco Rodriguez – have been working hard behind the scenes to bring you his exhibition online.

The world that Francisco Rodriguez paints is one of magical realism, a hybrid of the fantastical and the everyday. In the Night We Believe evokes a teenage bedroom and the familiar feeling of lying at night, imagining the world outside. Paintings resemble the adolescent posters of youth with their heroic figures and political graphics. Seasons change as if viewed from a window; animals demarcate the interior and exterior space; isolated figures enact dream-like narratives, imagery that seems peculiarly resonant in these strange times of domestic confinement.

We opened Francisco’s intriguing exhibition just three days before lockdown so if you didn’t have the chance to see it please do take a look here:

All works are for sale with 20% of profits being generously donated to our Save Chapter campaign, which will help ensure that we can continue to support the commission and exhibition of artists’ work when we're able to safely re-open.
