Pretty Ugly at Lo-Fi last week was a collab exhibition of paintings, prints and sculptures by Esjay and Toby&Pete. The gallery was dark, the beer was cold, and the art was different: just how we like it. The show was strong as a whole, but from a distance the paintings by Esjay really jumped maniacally off the wall. While Esjay brought strong graphic paintings, this was tempered by Toby&Pete who brought subtler and more detailed prints.
The atmosphere was part of the brilliance of this show. The darkness of the room broken only by the spotlighted artworks and surreal installations.
