Delighted to be returning to London Art Fair, returning to the Business Design Centre in Islington 18 -22 January 2023. (Preview Evening 17 January, 5pm – 9pm)
We are thrilled to be working on the 'Reframing the Muse' Platform curation by Ruth Millington, and presenting wonderful works by Deborah Azzopardi, Isabelle van Zeijl, Elaine Woo MacGregor, Ashley January, Felix Chesher, Ramon Omolaja Adeyemi.
Ruth Millington is an art historian, critic and author, specialising in Modern and Contemporary Art. Her specialist research interests include working class, outsider and women artists. She has written for publications including The i newspaper, The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, Daily Mail, Sorbet Magazine and BBC Online and is Director of Careers at Sotheby’s Institute of Art. She has featured as an art expert on TV and radio, including BBC Breakfast, Sky Arts and ITV News.
Each year Platform invites an exclusive selection of galleries to present work by well-known, overlooked and emerging artists aligned to a single distinct theme chosen by a guest curator.
Platform 2023 aims to highlight the diverse individuals, past and present, who have inspired artists to draw, sculpt, paint or photograph their immortalising portrait. Turning the tables on traditional accounts, it will invite questions about the collaborative role of the muse, beyond romanticised notions of the passive model.

"This piece is all about my conflicting relationship with social media. "To take photos of self and upload, or to not", the conundrum of the selfie. I feel increasing pressure to be online, and to be apart of the frenzy that we call social media, but at the same time i dislike the idea of the publicness of it all, and to what avail? I hope this artwork encourages the viewer to ask themselves how they feel about their own relationship with social media. " Eve De Haan
