What's On

#ISTHISNOW?

London born artist and curator Simon Tarrant launches his latest solo exhibition #isthisnow? at gallery@oxo. Showcasing a new collection of monoprints, paintings and drawings, Tarrant’s colourful artwork explores the celestial micro and macrocosms of our world. Depicting nature through deep-sea views, luminous landscapes and interstellar imagery – Tarrant takes his inspiration from space, time and matter – illustrating that everything is one and that the universe connects all.

Opening on the eve of a supposed new political dawn, the theme of the exhibition, #isthisnow? reflects upon a time of uncertainty. Tarrant says,” living and working as an artist is a precarious way of life, with bursts of intense creativity tempered by repeated cycles of vacillating. Continually pondering the timing and relevance of your work, feels unnervingly like a microcosm of the volatile and challenging society we live in, be it politically or as human beings coming to terms with our endangered ecology.”

Simon Tarrant is a self-taught artist and independent curator and has gained a reputation for curating critically acclaimed pop-up exhibitions in unique and unusual spaces. Showcasing both new and established artists, Simon draws upon his marketing and advertising background to promote a variety of charitable causes that support young people and the arts, as well as the LGBT+ arts community.
