This event has ended.

In Lifeline as Medium, Thomas Jaeckel Gallery showcases two bodies of recent work from Iranian-born painter Arghavan Khosravi and American artist Cecilia Charlton. Both artists’ creations convey a strong sense of the ancient in dialogue with the contemporary; each uses an inventive combination of diverse mediums, both traditional and modern; and both work with compelling imagery that demands the viewer’s participation to reveal hidden meanings and elusive narratives that are only hinted at by surface appearances. The works on display are the product of two lives lived under the influence of a vast and varied range of past experiences, as well as a strong commitment to discovering a new life for traditional art and craft processes within the realm of contemporary art. A dual portrait emerges of two artists striving — each in her own unique way — to make us question where we’ve been and where we’re going.

Arghavan Khosravi has an MFA in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design, a BFA in Graphic Design from Islamic Azad University of Tehran, and an MFA in Illustration from University of Tehran. Her works have been exhibited in New York, Iran, and throughout the U.S., and are in the collection of the Rhode Island of School of Design Museum in Providence, RI, as well as many private collections.

Cecilia Charlton is an American-born artist living and working in London. Her recent exhibitions include: SURGE: the East Wing Biennial, Courtauld Institute, London; Rogue Objects, UCL, London; Living Room, Safehouse 1 & 2, London. In June 2018 she completed her MA Painting at the Royal College of Art.
