ActionSpace artists Ian Wornast and Thompson Hall exhibition My Life in London at The Koppel Project Hive ran from Wednesday 21 – Tuesday 27 March 2018 with a private view on Friday 23 March, 3 – 5pm.
My Life in London showed new work created over the past year, during which the two artists embarked on an intensive programme of individual and collaborative creative development. The exhibition is the culmination of an Unlimited Emerging Artist Commission and explores Ian and Thompson’s experiences of living and travelling around London.
Thompson Hall says of his work,
My paintings are a combination of the galleries in London and West African influences from my Mom’s side of the family… What I’ve done in this commission is different to what I’ve done before. It’s very much about, you know, how I see myself and how other people see me.
Ian Wornast says of his work,
My work is about transport links and changes. I see and notice sites that are being built and they catch my eye… For this commission I am working on a very long drawing that is taking about 6 weeks. I am almost finished it. It’s one of the biggest pieces I have ever done!
