The works in this exhibition were created during Hazelwood-Horner’s residencies at various businesses relating to the brewing industry and gun manufacture.
Hazelwood-Horner’s interest is the theme of craft, primarily craft in London. The works reveal how old practices have evolved with the times, showing the importance of the sleight of hand and lightness of touch that cannot be replicated by machine.
The winning work from the 2016 Columbia Threadneedle Prize, Salt in Tea, was painted following a two-year residency at the bespoke umbrella shop James Smith & Sons in London’s West End. The title refers to when the craftsmen jokingly put salt or too much sugar in one another’s tea. Hazelwood-Horner attended the Byam Shaw School of Art (2010-11) and the London Atelier for Representational Art (2012-14)
