Emojimio, is an exhibition of new work by printmaker Ron Henocq. Emojimio is an ambitious site-specific installation conceived especially for the 3x3x3 metre cubic gallery space. In a new departure for the artist, he will let his lino-cut motifs, characters and icons escape the page and the frame and roam the walls of the gallery creating a mise en scène of suggested narrative and stories.
Henocq is a printmaker who gathers and creates images, drawing from mythology, alchemy, mysticism and magic. He combines and re-orders these into assemblages that create and inscribe meaning and narrative. In previous works he has collaged and printed over photographs from the vast collection he has created throughout a lifetime of travels.
Accompanying the exhibition is a free publication including a text by Dean Kenning.
Emojimio is on at Matt’s Gallery, 92 Webster Road, Bermondsey, SE16 4DF from 4th – 26th May. Times: 12-6pm Weds – Sun. Admission: Free. Phone: 020 7237 0398.
