Rex Southwick fa la sua prima mostra “Querencia” all’Unit London | Collater.al

Rex Southwick graduated in Fine Art from Leeds Art University in 2018. His creative process led him to analyze a series of domestic environments that through social are idealized. The super-saturated paintings depict our lives, which we roam glossy, through social media.

The artist makes the scenes idyllic by inserting figures like workers or servants that reveal the behind-the-scenes and the secret behind every luxury “scene” that our devices put in front of us. The title “Querencia” comes from the Spanish metaphysical concept that, in traditional games with bulls, they put their own querencia into play, the part of the arena where they feel stronger and safer. Southwick chose this word of representation for his exhibition because it evokes the “Death in the afternoon” of Hernest Hemingway.

The artist has already worked at the beginning of the year with The Power Station, the amazing group of the 80s, for the cover of their album.

Take a look at his works, which you can also see live from July 12 onwards at Unit London.
