Spiller + Cameron - Titans & Muses
Tue-Fri: 10-6pm; Sat: 11-5pm
Reincarnation is a key theme in the work of mother/son artistic duo, Spiller + Cameron, who have been working together for the past five years, creating an instantly recognizable oeuvre of stark, almost-brutalist, but also greatly expressive works that adhere to their own strict set of codes.
Firstly, the concept of reincarnation arises metaphorically, in that each of their paintings is created as a different, sentinel-type watchman. Each is titled after a Greek god, Biblical or historic figure, or even personified spiritualist ideology: Abbadon is the ‘place of destruction’ in the Old Testament; Gabriel the archangel who descends to earth with various warnings; Poseidon the Greek god of the sea.
Their debut exhibition with BEERS London, aptly titled Titans & Muses, scours the mythological and spiritualist annals to resurrect these figures as paintings.
