Last Thursday (27th May) saw the opening night of Static’s first solo show ‘New Ways of Seeing’ at our London gallery in New Compton Street.
There was a great turnout and the artists had some really positive feedback from the public for their awesome interior design skills as well as their artwork.
Before the show Static became artists in residence for a week whilst they completely customised and transformed every square inch of the two-floor gallery space, creating not only the perfect backdrop in which to show the work, but also offering a completely unique experience that will transport the viewer into the world in which the work is set.
The title of the show is taken from the highly regarded book and TV series 'Ways of Seeing' by John Berger circa 1972. Its aim is to demystify the art world and unveil the tricks used by advertisers to encourage us to buy their products. The series and book looks to criticise traditional Western cultural aesthetics by raising questions about hidden ideologies in visual images.
