Garden Party with Tigers of the Universe

An exhibition of original artworks and limited edition prints artist by Adam Bartlett.

Adam's paintings are elaborate imaginary worlds - junglescapes of giant ferns and tropical birds, or colourful fusions of the natural and man-made in which spaces bristle with tigers, rugs, plants, pots and patterns.

Using a combination of paints for contrast and character, Adam starts his pieces working on board with emulsion and layers of acrylic and finishes with fine details in gold and rich enamels. Now based at Hackney Down Studios in East London, Adam previously worked in fashion textiles and illustration. His background in fabric design is evident through his use of repeated motifs, pattern and texture.

A Guest Curation with Clare Morton

Launch Party: 6.30pm - 9pm Wednesday 15 March 2017
Show Dates: 16 March - 9 April 2017

This March we're excited to be hosting a guest curation in collaboration with local interior designer Clare Morton.

Clare set up her design consultancy, Studio Morton, in 2012 after working in the creative industry for many years. She and her team work on private and commercial projects across London and the UK and Clare's work has been featured in publications such as Homes and Gardens magazine, the London Evening Standard and The Metro.

With Studio Morton HQ just up the road at Miller's Junction in Dalston, Clare has become both a good customer and friend of the shop in recent years, sourcing many prints for her projects from our portfolio of artists. We thought it was high time we gave Clare free reign of our gallery wall and asked her to pick some personal favourites from the shop for an exhibition. Clare's selection includes some old familiars as well as newer pieces and we’re looking forward to showcasing her design style.

Emily Carter is a British illustrator who draws inspiration from her interest in scientific illustration, anatomy and natural history to create detailed and graphic compositions. Works are characteristically black and white, but every so often are seen with vivid hints of colour. Through experiments in mark making using her medium of fine pen, and a juxtaposition of components, she creates an element of surrealism within the seemingly classical compositions. All of the prints are signed limited editions, and are produced in London.

Private View: 7pm - 9pm 1 September 2016
Show Dates: 2 September - 31 October 2016

Born in Tucson, Arizona in 1986, Lauren moved to London aged two and has lived and worked here since. After studying Fashion Communication with promotion at Central Saint Martins, she decided that illustration would be a far better suited career.

Lauren’s best friend is her pencil. The most basic of tools, it can do extraordinary things! With it she interprets life as we see it using patterns, lines, texture, tone, and hopefully, a mood. Her influences are first and foremost everything she sees, feels and experiences. Using the natural world and the language of surrealism, she often transforms her subjects by contrasting and reworking them, capturing an air of curiosity. From ice-cream-brains to gun-bunnies, she takes a tongue-in-cheek approach to her artwork; after all it should be fun!

She has also illustrated a number of books including Tequila Mockingbird: Cocktails with a Literary Twist for Running Press, as well as the What Was… series for Penguin Young Readers Group. Other clientele include Nike, The Sunday Times Magazine, The Telegraph Magazine, Beaux Arts, Le Monde, and BBC.

You can often find Lauren strolling through a park or watching a Wes Anderson film. Or most probably drinking some tea and daydreaming about being a character in a Wes Anderson film.

Adam Bartlett is a London based artist with a background in fashion textiles and illustration. His paintings are a fun and colourful fusion of natural and man-made worlds in which spaces bristle with tigers, rugs, plants, pots and patterns. The original artworks are on board or paper, over which emulsion is applied before many layers of acrylic paint create the final image. He then also applies enamel paint for its richness and to create fine details and gold finishes.

Tiff Howick's hand-pulled screen prints are bold and simple images with limited colour palettes and interesting textures. Inspired by nature and influenced by her Scandinavian heritage, the loose lines of her drawings suggest movement and energy.
