About

The Brick Lane Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition of works by 17 artists curated by the Hornshaw Gallery London.

The title of the exhibition 'Looking To The Stars' is taken from an extract of a poem by Oscar Wilde: "We are all lying in the gutter but some of us are looking to the stars". This quote conveys the romantic and genuine notion that these artists optimistically look to the future, and beyond their present circumstances. Each have ambitions, hopes, aspirations and dreams that they aspire to, and their artistic practices expresses the beauty and optimism of their expectations. 

Presenting an eclectic range of artworks ranging from realistic intimate portraits and idyllic landscapes to dynamic colourful abstract pieces. The artists in this show represent an array of styles where different genres intersect, morph, and collide. Through this interdisciplinary approach the exhibition offers an insight into the ever-changing art forms in contemporary practice.

The Hornshaw gallery is delighted to present a carefully selected group of artists whose practices they have long been following, through years of research and collaborations. 

The exhibiting artists include:

Dara Park, Erene della Porta, Andrew Farmer, Simon Kirk, Wendy Hyde, John Partick Egan, Chrissy Guest, Martin Davis, Andrew Harrison, Gerald Shepherd, Jasmine Surreal, Alice Lenkiewicz, Chris Mear, Barry Andrews, Toni Cogdell, Joanne Coates and Beth Pearson.
