about this item

30 years after Stephen Tennant’s death, Volker Eichelmann has visually resurrected the decadent socialite’s famously unwritten novel?Lascar: A Story You Must Forget?as a publication that brings together his own collages and paintings alongside a rare selection of Tennant’s neglected oeuvre.
In Gutters of Gold reflections on landscape-gardens and water-features, Greek antiquities and ruination, horticulture and interior decoration unfold in a succession of evocative scenarios conceived by Eichelmann under chapter headings such as ?Weekend in Valmouth”, ?Mme d’Arpajon gets Drenched” and ?Dinner at van Storck’s”.
With Tennant figuring amongst a number of historical and fictional protagonists who populate Eichelmann’s work, Gutters of Gold will provide a unique opportunity to appreciate the wider conceptual remit of Eichelmann’s practice.
Volker Eichelmann is Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at Kingston University, London. His work has been shown extensively in solo and group exhibitions worldwide.
