Opening: 
Thursday, 9 February 2017 - 6:00pm

Next month, five celebrated young contemporary artists are coming together to exhibit an entirely new body of work. In contrast to the plethora of brightly coloured imagery London imposes on us, artists Donal Sturt, Alex May Hughes, Lucas Dupuy, Robert Southworth and Joe Townshend will celebrate what is possible with a stripped back colour pallet of just black and white.

As a group, the artists have taken a step back from the corporate social media jungle that many millennials of their generation have grown up in, to create a simplified version of reality. 

With the work stripped of its colour, each artist has focused on using their hands to create tangible artworks that are inspired by the modern world and advances in technology, whilst looking to more traditional techniques of painting, signwriting and sculpture to create it.

Laetus opens on Thursday 8th February (6:30 - 9.30pm) at 91 Peckham High Road, in association with India Dickinson Gallery. 

Artist: 

Donal Sturt, Alex May Hughes, Lucas Dupuy, Robert Southworth and Joe Townshend.
