Double Vision opens at 7pm – Late, 7th March at The Lauriston. The exhibition features work from 15 artists, who each received a very open brief: Double-Vision for the thirsty & illiterate. Some public houses are centuries old and many of their early customers were unable to read, but luckily they could recognise pictorial signs. This brief is going out to illustrators and printmakers. The target of ‘Double-Vision’ is to create a strong image that brings together two things that a thirsty and illiterate onlooker could identify.
This brief encourages the artists to create a piece that is completely within their control, but within the same format. An open brief, can create a huge range of different interpretations, ranging from: ‘Bear in Mind’, ‘Cock and Fly’ and ‘Ye Olde Donkey Punch Tavern’
In 2013 Mr.Gresty was invited by LHR to curate exhibitions in their three London bars, including Hackney’s Lauriston, 162 Victoria Park Road. LHR Exhibitions offers solo artists and groups a chance to get involved with other printmakers, illustrators, painters, fine artists, photography.
