Dancing On Bones - Works By Niyaz Najafov

Gazelli Art House is delighted to announce the first UK solo show of works by acclaimed Azeri artist Niyaz Najafov. Najafov is at the forefront of the contemporary art scene in Azerbaijan and his expressive oil paintings and sculptures have been exhibited at prestigious fairs and exhibitions, resulting in his fast-growing international reputation.

Najafov is an integral part of a generation of artists who have found renewed support on the burgeoning Azeri art scene. In the ever-expanding world of contemporary art, one of the newest frontiers is Azerbaijan where the collapse of the Soviet Union has not only given the country growing clout in international politics, but also a rich new cultural life, the effects of which have been seen internationally.

In 2007 Azerbaijan participated at the Venice Biennale for the first time and at the following edition Najafov’s work was selected for Azerbaijan’s pavilion. In January 2012 he also participated in an exhibition of Azerbaijani art entitled ‘Fly to Baku’ which was held at Phillips de Pury in London. Gazelli Art House will pioneer the support of this flourishing artistic community through this exhibition, which is the first solo show of an Azeri artist to be held in London.

For the forthcoming exhibition at Gazelli Art House the artist will present a new selection of works on canvas that epitomise his distinctive and dark style of painting. Populated by mysterious figures, his complex works reflect both the disturbing and humorous aspects of the human condition. Najafov has the ability to transform scenes of everyday existence into monumental depictions of underlying emotion.

The unflinching gaze of the artist pries into the most intimate moments of his subjects’ lives making the viewer feel both fascinated and uneasy. Whilst his works can be sinister in their subject matter and palette, they reflect a spectrum of emotion from violent passions to tender gestures that the viewer can often relate to.
