GILDA BRUNO INTERVIEWS the five emerging artists behind STUDIO WEST’S GROUP EXHIBITION 'The Reality in Whytch You Create'.
"Launched at the newly opened contemporary art gallery STUDIO WEST on January 14, The Reality in Whytch You Create is a group show bringing together some of the most exciting personalities on London’s emerging art scene. Featuring paintings from Alfie Rouy, Anna Woodward, Lydia Makin and Sholto Blissett accompanied by sound and video pieces by multidisciplinary artist Salomé Wu, the exhibition turns the spotlight onto the concept of ‘reality’ — here conceived in an expanded sense — “drawing on dreams, subconscious experience, and myths.”
Named after one of the artworks currently showing at the gallery, namely Rouy’s The Reality in Whytch You Create is Swyphtly Healed by Devotion to Good (2020), the event invites creatives and the public alike to reconsider their take on reality by immersing viewers in otherworldly fantasies, surreal landscapes and hypothetical post-human scenarios. In The Reality in Whytch You Create, “each artist imagined a constructed world in their own particular way,” says STUDIO WEST’s owner and curator Caroline Boseley."
