The exhibition showcases a new body of figurative portraits revealing the front and back of their subjects. Nettie’s work captures a focused representation of the back of the head, whilst Ed’s work subtly subverts reality, exploring an area of the face that is disconnected from the figure.
Nettie and Ed have known each other for years and the idea for the show developed pretty organically. The concept of the show was a natural choice considering Nettie’s and Ed’s artistic practices. They worked together thematically whilst maintaining their stylistic independence. Get to know Nettie and Ed as they talk us through their artistic styles, inspirational travel and favourite music:
Sanderson London held the after party of Back to Front’s preview, hosting friends and fans of Netti’s and Ed’s, as well as DJs, musicians and other individuals in the creative world. “Friends of mine were impressed at the fluidity of the evening, how relaxed it was and generally all had a great time”, boasts Ed. “The curation of music throughout the night was a highlight for me, all happening effortlessly under the double storey stained glass window in the Billiard Room”. he continues.
DJ’s featured on the night were: Nick Hadfield (Something in the Attic), main set by Andrew Ashong (Sound Signature) and closing set by Alex Black (Sounds Like Music). By merging music and art in one room, Something in the Attic put together a unique and unforgettable evening at Sanderson.
