Beau Gabriel, who is a Britannia Works-based painter, was the 2019 runner-up in the Hackney WickED Art Prize competition. Here, he presents a solo show of recent works that explore the relationship between classical and modern modes of artistic influence and portrayal. Drawing on high Renaissance mannerism and Instagram celebrities alike, the work probes how the confluence between these forms of representation finds expression on canvas. Portraits of friends provide a more intimate counterpoint, along with scenes from the artist’s imaginary childhood worlds, which blend art-history references with elements of the fantastic.
