No 1 Harbourside is proud to present a collaborative photography exhibition this month named On A Wing and Prayed by Bristol based photographer Bella Gaffney and Berlin based photographer Sophie Le Roux. We want to support local artists by showcasing their work for a month and give our No 1 Harbourside guests a chance to see some truly interesting art, schmooze with the artists at their launch event and maybe even purchase some art from struggling artists.
This month we have the collection named Scrapes (2018) from Berlin based photographer Sophie Le Roux. The series, shot of the island of La Palma in January 2018, depicts accidental artworks left behind by the wear and tear of the city, often overlooked. Sophie Le Roux is a British photographer exploring the unfamiliar in the mundane and the charisma in decay.
Bella Gaffney is a Bristol/London based photographer. Drawn to cheap and tacky aesthetics and vivid colours, her photography frames the random marks left by people in the city, focusing on the outdated and unappreciated. She has a particular interest in the meaningful interaction between people and place. Bella will be presenting a varied collection depicting some of her more well-known work as well as samples from her new collections.
The exhibition will run until the middle of May so ensure to come on down, eat some food, grab a pint (or a special gin from our guest gin menu) and appreciate the creativity.
