If you have some time pop into Studio 73 in Brixton Village, for a visual treat. On show is the work of Martin Grover and Caroline Harper. Martin’s range of screenprints includes hyper-realistic, trompe l’oeil images of vinyl records and their sleeves from the sixties (majoring on Tamla Motown); clear, crisp views of Brockwell Park which will be immediately recognisable to locals; and witty, visual observations on the everyday objects. He has a bright, confident style and has created a set of arresting images. Further examples of his work can be seen at martingrover.com
Caroline Parker’s hand drawn maps of buildings and trees are quirky and intriguing explorations and representations of urban areas. The viewer is cleverly drawn into a visual journey down streets, through parks and around landmarks. Using mostly black, white and silver, the screen prints create an interesting balance between bold, minimal colour and more gentle, subtle line drawings. More of Caroline’s work can be seen a carolineharper.com.
The Exhibition runs in Studio 73 until 18 March
Opening times: Tuesday to Saturday 11 to 5.30 Sunday 11 to 4.30
