Join Alex Hartley on Saturday 30 June at 1pm for an informal tour of his exhibition, The Houses, at Victoria Miro Mayfair.
Iconic examples of modernist domestic architecture, photographed by the artist over the past twenty-five years, primarily in Los Angeles, form the basis of these atmospheric monochrome works, in which the photographic image lies separated beneath hand-painted elements – describing and embellishing a verdant landscape – applied directly to a layer of semi-transparent acrylic.
The event takes place during Mayfair Art Weekend. Victoria Miro Mayfair will extend its hours until 8pm on Friday 29 June.
