WESTBANK ART EXHIBITION

‘DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE’ A Solo Show by ELMO HOOD

10 Nov 2016 - 24 Nov 2016

‘DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE’

PRIVATE VIEW THURSDAY 10TH NOVEMBER 7:30PM AT WESTBANK 3-5 THORPE CLOSE, W10 5XL, LONDON

 

Taking his inspiration from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and his long- standing fascination with playing cards, Down the Rabbit Hole, Elmo Hood’s latest solo exhibition – his largest to date – centres around rich and intricate compositions of Kings, Queens, Jokers, Madmen and the odd Rabbit…

Moving gradually away from the urban pop art style he was originally associated with, Elmo Hood’s new body of work consist of large gilding and oil paintings, created using a mix of brushes and pallet knives, which give his work a uniquely rich texture and 3-D effect.

Also featuring in the show – and for the first time in a UK exhibition, will be a series of Elmo Hood’s world-famous Playing Cards collages which he creates by cleverly cutting, burning and/or drawing over traditional playing cards to depict images of love, heartbreak, hope and betrayal.

To coincide with the exhibition, Elmo will also launch his latest collaboration with luxury leather brand OMCSU, featuring men and women’s jackets painted with unique designs inspired by the show. www.omcsu.com
