JD Malat Gallery is proud to re-open with the dynamic solo exhibition A Certain Blue Enters Your Soul, by the female Icelandic painter Katrin Fridriks.

From 12 April until 9 May 2021, A Certain Blue Enters Your Soul will present Fridriks’ newest body of work which focuses on the centrality of blue to our universal histories and aims to underline JD Malat Gallery’s role as an encompassing space for the London public to reconnect after the lockdown period.

Composed of 14 new major works and accompanied by a text by the writer Sebastian Di Giovanni, this exhibition highlights the significance of blue throughout the world and its history. Inspired by the multifaceted symbolism of blue, from its representational and material value in art to its ubiquitous presence throughout the world, this new body of work seeks to emphasise the encompassing and connective power of blue in terms of its natural, cultural and historical significance.
