PayneShurvell Projects features new work by Andrew Curtis, curated by Annabel Cary, in a temporary space in North London. The Leisure Circle consists of two sets of prints which offer a look at the taste, habits and methods that middle class Britons used to shape the internal and external environment they inhabited in the 1970s and 80s.
In the first group of prints, Curtis adapts photographs of domestic settings that feature house plants, masking all background and context to set ferns and flowers against a field of black. The second set continues Curtis’s fascination with the suburbian landscape, with a series of images of the Winter Gardens in Eltham.
