    Exploring traditional notions of portraiture through a contemporary lens, Looking at You (spring 2019) exhibited paintings by Rebecca Harper, Ross Head, Anna Ilsley, Igor Moritz and Janet Sainsbury. Curated by Charlotte Flint and produced by arts collective, Gedney Common, the show presented bodies shrouded in raucous colour, abstracted and amorphous, playful and life-like; celebrating the figure in a myriad of ways.

    The type-led identity paired a highly elegant display cut of Leonardo Fascia by Quentin Schmerber with a light and spacious cut of Thomas Huot-Marchand’s chiseled Minérale. The oversized interplay between the alternating artist names and show titles formed a theme across event promotion, signage and printed information in the space, with an electric blue running as a visual thread throughout.
