Brixton-based artist on show in Soho

‘Good Company’ is a solo show of works at Soho Revue by Brixton-based artist, Layla Andrews who is best known for her large scale, figurative and abstract portraits.

The exhibition of paintings and sculpture includes ‘Rachel’ – a monumental lobster which the artist made during her time as artist in residence in Brixton Village

The works celebrate the joy of human interaction and reflect a sense of conviviality and fun – a very timely breath of fresh air as the pandemic lingers on. 

In a series of bold, colourful tableaux, we are invited into surreal and amusing worlds populated with unlikely objects and characters in unlikely settings.

Humans are transmogrified into a pair of crocodile-headed musicians; a sleeping cowboy is watched over by a small army of crabs  and three croco-humans and a panther eat shrimps and drink wine at a dinner party.

‘Good Company’ runs until 30 April in Soho Revue, 1- 4 Walkers Court, W1F 0BT
