About the Exhibition: ‘Seven Days Too Long’

Seven Days Too Long is an exhibition curated by Fluorescent Smogg in association with Mirus Gallery, Denver, This will be Fluorescent Smogg’s inaugural group exhibition in America. Featuring artists: Jonnie Cheatwood, Taku Obata, Sat One, Sickboy, Broken Fingaz, George Morton Clarke and Mars1

Lucky number seven. A significant number across the world. It is represented throughout religions and cultures, from Shakespeare's seven ages of man to Japan's Seven Gods of Luck and Good Fortune. Now, this blessed numeral is outshining itself in a groundbreaking group show brought to Mirus Gallery, Denver, by the UK­-based fine art editions house, Fluorescent Smogg.

Comprising of seven artists, several originals and seven editions, Seven Days Too Long is presenting a container ship load of talent. This show will draw on Fluorescent Smogg’s technical know-­how and ingenuity to bring diverse disciplines, such as, 3D printing in gold, monotyping, screenprinting, woodblock printing and the ancient art of bronze-­casting-­ all under one roof.

Following Fluorescent Smogg ́s dedication to breaking new creative ground, exhibiting artists were invited to throw off the shackles and make original paintings that push their capabilities to the limit. In addition, each artist was invited to create one bespoke edition in collaboration with Fluorescent Smogg ́s community of master craftsmen, artist technicians, seasoned producers and product designers.

The result? Seven Days Too Long is a dazzling display of skills, techniques and philosophies; an immersive traverse between the futuristic sculpture of Japan’s Taku Obata, the mystic canvases of San Francisco’s golden boy Mars­1, or the abstract, deep-­colour creations of Venezuela’s Sat One.

Exciting young painters Jonnie Cheatwood and George Morton­Clarke join world-­renowned street art duo Broken Fingaz to complete the eclectic line­-up along with Fluorescent Smogg ́s own Sickboy.

Fluorescent Smogg -­ under the auspices of enigmatic founder, Sickboy ­- invited all seven exhibitors to dream big before helping them delineate their ideas in 2D, 3D, pre-­analogue or post­-digital — moving from the bronze foundry to the brass works to the model­-making studio to make it happen. Mirus Gallery, renowned for championing new movements in US contemporary arts and with an emphasis on artistic process as much as result, proved an ideal partner for Fluorescent Smogg ́s first venture into the US.

These two innovative institutions are out to prove that lucky number seven still has it by bringing us a beautiful clash of minds, worlds, colours and styles in a show that doesn't simply celebrate true craftsmanship but creates it.
