The exhibition IMMORTAL represents a beautiful mythology of distorted reality where past, present and future lie together unbound in a collection of myths and dreams. The work of IMMORTAL exists in a profoundly sensual realm suspended between abstraction and surrealist fantasy, infused with classical beauty and inspired by neo-futurism. using a subtle alchemy, Warren and Nick artfully create an intangible state in which their muses and sirens exist.
Acclaimed for their experimental approach and unique inventive use of light and colour, Warren and Nick shape and craft artworks laced with mystery and the erotic, that draw on classic futurism and evoke a stellar otherworldly existence, which delicately arouses the senses.
Renowned for their experimental and ground breaking exploration within the photographic medium and a multi-disciplinary approach to installation and film, W&N create work that combines surrealist fantasy, mythology and symbolism that challenges the boundaries of beauty and the abstract. Their vision explores the realms between the conscious and subconscious and the space between dreams and reality.
