THE DOOR is run as a collaboration between The Royal Oak Ramsden and M+P | Art, a gallery and viewing space in Delly End run by art advisor Lucy Meakin and art dealer and gallerist Ben Parsons.
It functions as an outpost of the gallery programme, acting as a space for an ongoing changing series of interesting works by local, national and international artists.
From the Island of Mull in Scotland and now residing in London. Charles Avery’s work is described as a fiction through pictures. His imagined island is depicted as it evolves, evoking philosophical enquiry alongside beauty and humour. Think of Jorge Luis Borges ‘Labyrinth’ or Ludwig Wittgenstein’s ‘Tractatus Logico-Philophicus’ and you begin to touch of the vibrancy and intellect of his work. The depth is also unparalleled.
On display we have the ‘posters’ and adverts that adorn his fictional city of Onomatopoeia.
