An exhibition by Rosie Leventon and Leandro Lottici, curated by Miguel Mallol opening on 5th of June till the 28th of June 2015 at Angus Hughes Gallery.

About

The exhibition represents a dialogue between Rosie Leventon’s architectural sculptures and Leandro Lottici’s urban landscapes. Rosie reflects in five sculptures, the experiences accumulated from her travels in the Middle East linked with the immediate reality of the London borough of Brent, where she lives and works. From pigeon cots to Buddhist temples, she refers to the sort of structures that we do not see in our everyday lives. Leandro Lottici represents in three large paintings the contemporary human being, dispersed in his frenetic wanderings of the urban environment in a city like London. Geometrical visions of apparent abstraction bring the spectator to an impossible point of view, with a combination between primary colors in the middle of greys and blacks. The sculptures and large paintings are created with the main material, called celotex, which can be found just about everywhere, used for insulation though difficult to notice because of being inside the structure of buildings. Raw pigment and other materials have been used as a coating and base for all the pieces. They create an analogy between the industrial mass produced material and the hand crafted objects, combining raw materials and industrialized ones and changing  their roles . Rosie Leventon and Leandro Lottici allow us to look through the lens of our everyday Junk Culture of concrete blocks, hamburgers and car parks to see the evidence of other cultures only dimly perceived and often misunderstood.
