The Doyle Devere Gallery in Notting Hill is to host an exhibition by Amanda Eliasch, the accredited playwright and artist, on 3rd November 2011. Entitled “Peccadilloes”, the exhibition will showcase her collection of neon art pieces, all of which are based on the cartoons of Ms Eliasch’s dear friend, art collector Kay Saatchi. The pieces highlight the many facets of the seven deadly sins; images of select pieces from the exhibition can be seen throughout this text.
“Peccadilloes” by Amanda Eliasch at the Doyle Devere Gallery, 3rd November 2011
Ms Eliasch began her early years as an artist at the Royal Academy for the Dramatic Arts, The Academy of Live and Recorded Arts, and the Moscow Theatre before eventually turning her talents to photography. She has also released three books – British Artists at Work in collaboration with Italian Vogue editor Franca Sozzani; Made By Indians and Made By Brazilians, featuring work by Enrico Navarra; and the poetry book Cloak and Dagger Butterfly (with the follow-up, The Sins of a Butterfly, to be published soon).
Ms Eliasch’s other works include her dramatic black and white prints, showcased in four exhibitions across London to great acclaim, and playwriting her first work As I Like It, which ran for two weeks at The Chelsea Theatre in July 2011.
Beyond her artistic work, Ms Eliasch is of course an adored style icon in her own right, having become a dazzling and enigmatic fixture at fashion shows in New York, Paris and London. She currently splits her time between a carefully curated townhouse in Chelsea, a residence in Paris (where the similarly rebellious artist Tamara de Lempicka once lived), and her home in Beverly Hills, previous occupied by legendary actress Janet Leigh.
