Act One. Lucy Mercer with Jamie Shovlin
Tom Rees, born 1988, is a British artist currently living and working in New York City. He obtained his BFA in 2010 from Goldsmiths, University of London. Working primarily in oils Rees’s alternative world distorts any boundary between the symbolic and the real bringing us images that are familiar yet estranged. Rees’s use of line confronts us with works that are simultaneously awkward and direct.
Brigid Elva is an artist and illustrator living and working in the UK. Their work has appeared in several comics anthologies & books, as well as various zine-based projects, including ‘The Chapess’ and others. Their clients include Prada, Dazed, and The New York Times.
