    For almost 50 years, artist Frith Powell has worked reclusively in his Oxford studio – wrestling with visual and philosophical themes with single-minded dedication. At last, he has been persuaded to show this substantial and remarkable culmination of a life’s work, dedicated to dressing ‘Nothing in Something…giving shape to entities that lie beyond the bounds of sense experience.’ 

    The four-room exhibition explores Frith Powell’s extraordinary range and technical virtuosity.The main body of his work is from the conceptual and enigmatic MuMu collection, which includes beautiful and quietly challenging oil paintings, sculptures and drawings. The final gallery draws the viewer into the magical world of Frith Powell’s alter ego. Entitled The Singular Apprenticeship of Fabio Penitente, this mysterious and enchanting ‘hidden archive’ of small sculptures and drawings comprises an entire and coherent ‘alternative’ culture, replete with its own meticulously sculpted artefacts.
