After their first public showing, Anna Mathewson’s chillingly beautiful drawings and Steve Bomford’s dramatic photographs are coming to Portsmouth as the next step on their tour. After dropping jaws and enchanting the crowds at the Chichester Summer Art show in the Oxmarket Arts Centre last month, the hit exhibition Nightmares & Fairytales is open for one day only (Friday 30th July from 2pm), the show will be on display at the gallery in Art Space (Brougham Road, Southsea).
Working with curators Daniel O’Neill and Jan Williams, the artists will transform the Art Space gallery into a dark fairyland peopled by twisted sprites and the ghosts of innocence. Delicate, feminine and startling, Anna’s work is taken from a treasure trove of drawings, collages, stories and poems. Steve’s photographs are an exploration of the creative world of Anna’s imagination.
Join the artists and curators on the day to see the drawings, photographs and installations, and enjoy a drink with friends.
