Future Plans: Jess Littlewood at The Contemporary London
Littlewood’s work explores the concepts of Utopia and human knowledge in a battle with the natural world, she pulls this off by creating kaleidoscopic imagery that is dense but immediate, and has a transient feel to it by capturing the complexity of many images in individual still pieces.
I really enjoy the motifs that she uses – visually there’s a lot of science fiction (or just plain science) motifs being used, it makes you feel involved but very small, and kind of overwhelmed too.
Since graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2010, Jess has exhibited her work across London including a previous solo exhibition at The Hotel Elephant Gallery, and most recently at the PPOW Gallery in New York. Her recent work is supposed to mark an ‘apocalyptic end and a brave new beginning’, so expect post-civilisation visual psychedelia and the destructive re-birth of the natural world.
FUTURE PLANS runs at The Contemporary London from Friday 2- Sunday 4 November 2012 (Friday & Saturday 10-6pm, Sunday 10-5.30pm) with the private view on Thursday from 6-10 pm.
