Young Master’s award winner and highly sought after duo of collaborative twins to host separate major solo shows in London in October 2023
LONDON (UK) – The Troubadour Gallery, a leading light yet new addition to London’s Soho art scene, permanently residing just off of Brewer Street in the capital, has teamed up with veteran art consultancy West Contemporary to host two separate winter solo shows by nationally emerging female artists The Cameron Twins and Zoë Moss.
With a background in high-end entertainment industry concierge, Troubadour Gallery has been founded with a focus on providing a versatile and central space for highly established artists to exhibit, whilst also understanding the importance of providing curatorial opportunity for (rapidly) emerging artists, something the founders appreciate from their own professional endeavours.
The Troubadour Gallery is the brainchild of Alexis James and Zara Dawson, West-End actors turned A-list Hollywood fixers and owners of Golden Ticket – a worldwide leading invite-only 360-concierge company founded in 2010 with the unique request of by being charged with finding the unfindable for the world’s dreamers and visionaries.
Nearly a decade and a half of success and the sizeable extension of the contact list of the already impeccably well connected James and Dawson later (and their industry famed team of problem solvers and treasure hunters), The Troubadour Gallery adds art to the offering for their celebrated clientele As experienced purveyors and specialists of bespoke and tailored solutions, the commission process now offered via the gallery is a familiar concept for the company and one that is paying off already. Similarly, the company benefits from the vast array of talents of its internationally assembled team of creatives, fixers and consultants, transferring the elite level of professionalism required at the expectant ‘1% level’, with the personable touch and affable charm that has returned such clients for many years and built the company on personal recommendation. Attributes the team believes can offer London a welcoming and warm addition to the capital’s art landscape. Golden Ticket’s top team are used to imagining the unimaginable and challenging the unchallengeable on their quest to redesign the standard when we think of the term; unique experiences.
The gallery’s home consultations for its acclaimed associates is already paying dividends for their famed collectors in the form of new and unique artworks for their collections and also a benefit to artists with an unparalleled new audience and collector base of household names for the emerging and experienced creatives that the gallery chooses to champion.
Although already establishing a name within music and rock photography circles, The Troubadour Gallery’s second USP is a commitment to providing opportunity for hand-selected British artists, an exciting proposition that is set to benefit The Cameron Twins and Zoë Moss.
‘See No Evil’ will be photorealistic oil painter Zoë Moss’s most varied project to date. A body of work comprising of predominantly oil paint originals that sees the artist combine her recent gold masked contemporary icon portraiture with her bell jar series of homages of notable 20th century artists.
A recent award winner at the prestigious Young Masters during Frieze week, the London-based Moss has previously been shortlisted for the BP Portrait Prize and the John Moores Painting Prize. Inspired by the richness offered by painting versus photography, Moss finds a way to add significant character and striking concept to her work, as seen via the masks within this show, whilst still working within the confines of more traditional realism, albeit with a contemporary flourish.
‘See No Evil’ will run from Friday 17th November to Saturday 25th November 2023 at Troubadour Gallery in collaboration with West Contemporary, 14 Smith’s Court, London, W1D 7DW.
