Atelier | The Art of Representation
1st - 4th December 2015
Private View Mon 30th November | 6–9pm
Mall Galleries, The Mall, London SW1 Map >
More than 25 artists, all trained in the atelier style and handpicked for their creativity and vision will unveil their work at this exhibition, which will showcase how these traditional skills are relevant today.
This free exhibition will feature painters and sculptors from around the world who graduated from Ateliers and specialist workshops where they focused intensively on the technical art of representation.
The exhibition will include computer arts, pop art, sculpture, conceptual work, architecture, and photography along with painting and drawing.
In the Atelier style, mastery of the grammar of drawing is highly valued. The development of this level of skill demands from its practitioners an intensity of focus, dedication and patience. Even in today's high-speed world these qualities remain highly relevant, as demonstrated by the diversity of media used in the Exhibition.
James Napier, the Director of LARA and who conceived the exhibition, comments: “Ateliers focus on understanding how to truly observe from life and this exhibition fully illustrates what an artist can do once they have learned those skills. There is an impressive body of work within a range of forms as a result of the artists having spent serious study and time in mastering their art”.

about Lobbs Sewing the Soles Sketch
After success at the Mall Galleries, Lewis was offered a place at LARA. He also studied etching and lithographs at the Prince's Drawing School. Lewis Hazelwood-Horner finds inspiration in the art residencies he's occupied, for companies as diverse as James Smith & Sons, the umbrella makers; Holland and Holland, the gunmakers; Lobbs the bespoke boot makers, and various breweries including the Truman Brewery and the Redemption Brewery. Holland and Holland exhibited his work at their flagship store in Mayfair. They wrote that Lewis moved around the factory 'armed with a sketchbook, blank canvases and oils'.
2 of his paintings have been chosen by the ROI for their 2015 annual show at the Mall Galleries.
Lewis is currently artist in residence at the the King Charles I pub in Kings Cross and Private White V.C.
