Lacey Contemporary Gallery is proud to present the work of two UK contemporary artists – Brian Ord and Val Close, in their new exhibition HOUSE & HOTEL.


This exhibition will explore new works and developments by the artists that investigates the interiors and exteriors of the traditional style homes we live in.

Brian Ord uses mixed media to create unreal places based on the ‘American Dream’; the ideal by which equality of opportunity is available to any American, allowing the highest aspirations and goals to be achieved. His work discusses the unattainability of domestic utopia.

Val Close series of work is concerned with consumerism and materialism. Similar to Ords’ themes, Val experiments with mixed media. Her embroidery plays with the idea of the traditional home; the conceptual ‘Comfort Blanket.’ a source of refuge heavily influences her work for its owner, an intimate space.

The gallery will be hosting a private view with the artists on Wednesday 23rd November 2016, 6-8pm. HOUSE & HOTEL will be open to the public between the 22nd – 26th November 2016.
