A Matter of Life & Death
Is a micro exhibit by artist Carl Hoare showing at Café Nero Epsom,

I am sure you will find something to tantalize…


Carl P.S. Hoare is an international exhibiting artist having shown in New York, Vienna, Berlin and Shanghai as well as in London, from Cork street to the South Bank. In 2014 Carl was one of the winners of the Churchill Design Award and in 2015 he was a prize winner of the Surrey Remembers Fund. His work has been highly commended by the South Bank Gallery and has been presented to Boris Jonson, David Cameron and Nick Clegg.

Carl's work is deeply inspired by modern history, as he spends much time in museums and at antique fairs along with watching old British cinema of the 1920s to early 1960s - from Film Noir and Kitchen Sink all the way to the wonderful Ealing comedy’s. He is also inspired by artists such as Jorg Immendorff, Philip Evergood, Leonora Carrington, and Peter Phillips.

Carl P.S. Hoare: 
‘’The past is so close but yet so far, the same, but so different, believable but yet so unbelievable. I draw and paint and print to create a dream world where there is no beginning and no end. Time is transient, making the past the present and the present the past’’.

The space in-between past and present is a place of infinity and nothing, take a glimpse through the windows to enter that dream world.

The print series on show are available in A3 and A2.
