Back to Front: Nettie Wakefield & Edward Haslam, 5th – 12th Dec 2013

Something in the Attic is thrilled to introduce Back to Front, a two-person exhibition of drawings by Nettie Wakefield and Edward Haslam. Both artists have worked in conjunction for the first time to produce a new body of figurative portraits revealing the front and back of their subjects. Nettie’s work captures a focused representation of the back of the head, a lucid snapshot of reality, whilst Edward’s work subtly subverts reality, exploring an area of the face that is disconnected from the figure. The collaboration brings vigour to their respective style, as they play off one another’s ideas in a dialogue that runs through this … Continue reading

An exhibition of Lynnie Zulu’s Art on the 21st & 22nd of March 2013

Jungle Fever is a thrilling ride into the wild world of Lynnie Zulu. Her bold tribal graphics – with a jazzy, psychedelic twist – lead us on an expedition into the unknown. Zulu’s spontaneous and fluid style imprints her vivacious personality on all her work. Her connections with Tanzania also enable her to draw from a deep well of African creativity. For her first solo show, she has made spectacular use of the vibrant patterns and colours found in tropical rainforests and jungles. Her fascination with the individual also introduces us to a community of mysterious and charismatic characters. Faces magically emerge from the patterns … Continue reading
