Closer to Life

20 - 21 Sep 2019

We are pleased to announce a weekend pop-up and online exhibition with XANDER HAYWOOD. The featured works take a contemporary and imaginative approach to the traditional oil-painted life-study, combining botanical paintings and portraits of people living in Berlin.

Xander Haywood’s artistic practice explores the boundary between the real and the imagined, infusing the outer world as it is conventionally experienced with the artist’s subjective and emotive inner perceptions. Through his use of perspective and attention to detail, Xander aims to create an intimate and immersive experience, with the intention of dissolving the separation between subject and object, the image and the viewer.

SAVE THE DATE: Public opening Saturday 21st September from 6 pm
Exhibition on view Sunday 22nd September 11 am – 5 pm
