Layla Murga & Andrew Revell

Being Nature showcases a variety of new paintings, sculptures, collages, drawings and photographs all created during the year-long lockdown.

Although initially dramatic, the lockdown period became a very productive creative time for both artists free from the usual distractions and demands of contemporary life. The contained and isolated nature of the year prompted an atypical freedom allowing artworks to emerge unimpeded.

Hence the title ‘Being Nature’ describing a liberating sense of creative play and an expression of “getting out of their own way” during the active process of creation.

This is their first collaborative exhibition and their work shares an experimental look at what can result when expression and forms are free to surface.
