For their Christmas show Long White Cloud, sponsored by Heineken's Tiger Beer, is pleased to present a body of work by collage artist Hormazd Narielwalla. The work is in keeping with the season ' a celebration of birth.
Two words that side by side make an indelible impression on all who hear them. Children may see flowers pretty and peculiar. Men see mother, mouthwatering and mysterious. Women see themselves flattened, flattered or flaunted. The space around Narielwalla's bold vagina collages invites the individual imagination of the viewer to blossom.
Hormazd breathes life into women's lingerie patterns from 1970's London; and antique tailoring patterns rescued from the 1930's onwards all too often left orphaned by deceased gentlemen whose shrunken shanks have no need for fabric. Freed from function tailoring patterns are drawings ahead of their time; anthropomorphic in origin and beautifully abstract in isolation.
This is an artist who hasn't touched this particular muse since birth yet like any man cannot resist but return to the grip of those lips that first spoke his name.
