Artica, an online gallery for young contempory art, starts off the still relatively new year with an inaugural exhibition at Clerkenwell's stylish and trendy Zetter Hotel. Featuring eight new works by South London painter/illustrator Lyndon Hayes, the exhibition offers a thoughtfully angled and colour-rich take on the banality of daily life worthy of a quick look-see or linger while sipping something in the hotel's swish lobby bar. Says Hayes of his art, “I like the idea of leaving the viewer with an unfinished story within each piece, to make the paintings suggestive but not revealing too much”. The pieces are on view until 1 March.
The Zetter Hotel is located at 86-88 St John’s Square, Clerkenwell Road, EC1M 5RJ. Visit www.artica.com for more information.
