SO ALONE

Paul Anderson 

April - June 2022

 

Paul developed his illustrational style in the 1990s, having enrolled at the legendary London Cartoon Centre, the only UK school to specialise in comic book art.

 

Paul specialises in detailed re-imaginings of urban lives and landscapes. This new work, So Alone, is a large scale modern mixtopia - shiny surfaces, bright lights and elemental forms blending with neglected corners, bleak vistas and dislocated people. With words like ‘hold on’, ‘love’, ‘lost’ and ‘so alone’ strewn across the scene, this juxtaposition of bright and bleak suggests both a seductiveness and emptiness in modern city life, and a connection and isolation experienced in our digital age.

Past Exhibitions

BETWEEN US

Annette Fernando 

October - December 2021

A collection of paintings and ink drawings inspired by classic cinema.     

 

Rooted in the realm of film noir, comic books and romantic pulp novels, Annette Fernando’s visual style is rich with cinematic references. With a particular fascination for the new wave movements, her work explores the impact of film on identity, and the on-screen portrayal of everyday situations.  

 

For this exhibition, a series of stills have been reinterpreted from their original film sources, and reordered to invite new narratives. Common themes of missed and lost connection emerge, alongside moments of yearned intimacy. Through the lens of a year of lockdowns and social distancing, these paused frames make space to reflect on missed human contact, and our desire to be known and understood.
