One fundamental element of the Enter Gallery ethos is supporting up-and-coming artists. As we celebrate our 30th year, we wanted to supercharge this by supporting artists we really believe in with exciting external events.

Charlotte Rose

With this in mind, Lawrence and the Enter Gallery team are delighted to announce we’re sponsoring Charlotte Rose’s second solo show – Too Much of A Good Thing, which is taking place in Noho Studios, London from April 12-17th 2022.

We had a lovely chat with Rose and in today’s blog we’re revealing everything you need to know about the show, and why you simply have to be there come April 12th

‘I Quit Last Week’

Charlotte Rose is a self-taught artist whose artistic career took off during the pandemic. Her liberating experiments with painting, which included using her body as a paint brush, soon developed into the 15-large scale acrylic paintings which formed her debut solo show – I Quit Last Week.

The sell-out show was an enormous success, attracting the attention of high-profile fans, including Yung Blud and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. 

The show focused on evoking nostalgia for branding from the 20th century, while challenging its intention. Each piece in the show was designed as an ‘exploration of the dream sold by ad companies in the name of selling poisonous goods.’

Too Much of A Good Thing

Too Much of A Good Thing is a sister show to I Quit Last Week. It is an exploration of the artistry of classic branding that’s responsible for building culture, law and nostalgia. Rose explains:


‘Branding is something that massively inspires my work. The relationship between consumer and corporation fascinates me - the trust forged, the nostalgia and integration into every facet of our lives. Whether it’s candy, fast food, cigarettes or oil; there is an instant association with a particular brand in the minds of the people.’ 

 

‘The iconic curves of the McDonalds Golden Arches, or the infamous Marlboro K – what ideas do these images incite in the minds of the consumer? The promise of the American Dream, the bringing together of a community? I’m interested in how, as time progresses and the population awakens to the hidden dangers of products once portrayed as their friend, the branding and the culture around it begin to fall away.’

Brilliant Branding

Visitors to the show will experience a selection of original paintings and limited edition prints by Rose, each exploring consumers’ love for the brands portrayed, and the iconography that’s ever-present in the background of our lives.

Rose explains what it is about brands that captures her imagination: 


‘Branding like this is a perfect example of human brilliance; building culture, narrative and memories so deeply intertwined within the collective minds of millions of people is something that can only be forged over time with patience, skill and above all else, a true understanding of the human experience.’
