ART PLUGGED FEATURES STUDIO WEST'S INUGURAL EXHIBITION, 'TOMORROW WILL BE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DAY OF YOUR LIFE'
"STUDIO WEST is proud to present its inaugural exhibition, Tomorrow Will Be The Most Beautiful Day Of Your Life, displaying new works by artist couple Victoria Cantons and Xu Yang. This will be their first show as a duo, presented in celebration of their creative and personal collaboration. Cantons and Xu share a studio and work in conversation, questioning how art operates as a redeeming medium and addressing themes of uncertainty, identity and the female gaze. The exhibition is unique in that it shows work of two artists who are intensely bonded, known for creating depictions of one another and working in unison.
The show title speaks to hope, love and positivity. Both artists see the exhibition as carrying a message of promise, offering the idea that if you seek to be your best self you will be met with a brighter tomorrow. It also relates to their ongoing relationship and the challenges they have overcome to sustain it. Both artists explore ideas of identity through their work, but what emerges in this exhibition is that they are their most true and comfortable selves when working and creating together."
