Will Thorburn

Last Thursday I went to the private view of "Our Friendship Has Potential" at Aquire Arts Gallery in Battersea. The show consisted of work from Jane Howard, Hannah Bays, Holly White, Emily Brown, Ellie Nicholls, Steve Bunn, Kevin Quigley, and Daisy Addison.
It was nice to catch up with friends and see other friend's new work.
Although I'd been aware of his work for many years (we studied together), Will Thorborn's exhibits at the show really made an impression on me. His highly intricate, and sexual work has the power to mesmerize as well as being brutally explicit about the physicality of sex, life, and organic reality of possessing a human body.
Well worth checking out.
