the hidden gem of the artwork - the small gallery
Studio 124 is a collective of creative services: Photography; Paintings; Interior Design; Oriental Antiques, Vintage Kilims and Rugs; Adult Art Classes; Children's Art Workshops & Framing.
Studio124 Collective recently held an exhibition of their work for the benefit of Nakuru Hope, Gabriel Learning Centre and Orphanage in Kenya. The members of the creative collective being made up – Louisa, Richard, Hillary, Holly, Nick and Cher.
On display the work of photographer Louisa Seton. She is passionate about her work and justifiably so. On show is part of her "Odyssey" collection, in which her images capture the stunning, statuesque women from the Suri Tribe, Upper Oma Valley in Ethiopia and speak of their strength. Louisa's photos are haughtily beautiful, however, as for the ornate lip places, you will have to ponder whether they are body beautification or body modification as the Ethiopian practise dates back to 8700BC.
Another standout was the Birds of Passage collection of objets d'art, oriental antiques, furniture, vintage kilims and rugs predominantly of Chinese aesthetic with all its distinguishing characteristics. Richard selects his pieces as he travels, so it's worth visiting him to get the story belonging to the piece you are interested in. But you will find all the pieces convey harmony and would suit most surrounds.
And there is more; worth dropping into Studio124 and checking out what all the creative collective is showing.
