ELEMENTAL - ESSENTIAL: kit allsopp
3 April 2020 - 31 May 2020



Velorose has had the pleasure of exhibiting the work of architect-artist Kit Allsopp since 2018; prior to this, David Rosenberg and Kit Allsopp taught alongside one another at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, and David became acquainted with Kit’s paintings as a result of running his architectural practice above Alan Baxter’s Gallery from 2007 to 2017, and before moving to Charterhouse Square. Kit and his wife Sheila have been great friends and supporters of Velorose since the gallery opened

On a visit to Kit’s studio in 2017 to select oil paintings for his successful 2018 solo exhibition ‘Primitive Huts, Natural Landscape', David was struck by a small watercolour hanging above Kit’s desk. The story that emerged, and the image, remained with David and came to mind when thinking of art under lockdown: Kit had painted ‘Back Gardens’ when confined to his home in Islington for six weeks in 1973, and continued to paint with watercolours, but has typically considered his oil paintings for exhibition. Velorose is privileged to be exhibiting for the first time watercolours painted by Kit from the 1970s and 1980s
