Culture Vultures! Notting Hill’s Lacey Contemporary’s next exhibition is coming to their 8 Clarendon Cross (W11 4AP) gallery from 22-26 November.

Brian Ord and Val Close’s HOUSE & HOTEL will explore new works and developments by the artists as they investigate the interiors and exteriors of the traditional style homes we live in.


Brian Ord uses mixed media to create unreal places based on the ‘American Dream’; the ideal by which equality of opportunity is available to any American, allowing the highest aspirations and goals to be achieved. His work discusses the unattainability of domestic utopia.

Val Close series of work is concerned with consumerism and materialism. Similar to Ords’ themes, Val experiments with mixed media. Her embroidery plays with the idea of the traditional home; the conceptual ‘Comfort Blanket.’ a source of refuge heavily influences her work for its owner, an intimate space.

The gallery will be hosting a private view with the artists on Wednesday, 23 November 2016, 6-8pm, while the exhibition will be open to the public from the 22– 26 November 2016.
