Taking his inspiration from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and featuring brand new works including oil paintings and collages, Elmo Hood's latest solo exhibition, Down the Rabbit Hole, centres around rich compositions of Kings, Queens, Rabbits and Madmen, celebrating the classic story which was published just over 150 years ago.
Moving gradually away from the urban pop art style he was originally associated with, Elmo Hood’s new work consists of large-‐scale gilding and oil paintings, created using pallet knives, giving his work a rich texture and fascinating 3-‐D effect.
Also featuring in the show – and for the first time in a UK exhibition, will be a series of Elmo Hood’s world-‐famous collages which he creates by cleverly cutting, burning and drawing over traditional playing cards to depict images of love, heartbreak, hope and betrayal.
To coincide with the exhibition, Elmo will also launch his latest collaboration with luxury leather brand OMCSU, featuring men and women's jackets painted with unique designs inspired by the show. www.omcsu.com
