A Private View with Anthony Lycett

"I met Anthony Lycett when I was interviewing 92-year-old RA painter Anthony Eyton in his Brixton studio; Lycett was there at the same time photographing him. We got chatting and Lycett, a tall, gregarious fellow, filled me in on his his project – Private View – an intriguing long-term exploration of London- and Paris-based creatives framed within the backdrops of their inner sanctums: their studios. Where Lycett’s approach differs to the run-of-the-mill artists-in-their-studios portraits is in the method he uses: taking multiple shots of the subject and the space they occupy, Lycett creates a type of photographic composition that’s reminiscent in its conception to the photographic collages (or ‘joiners’) popularised by David Hockney back in the 80s.
Obviously, Hockney didn’t have access to Photoshop back then. But now, with the technical benefits the digital era allows, Lycett is able to seamlessly piece together his own digital version of the photographic collage, creating deep, wide-angled images that allow a viewer to become immediately ensconced in the artist’s personal space; the studios and assorted paraphernalia (whether cluttered or minimal, depending on the individual artist’s working practices) are discovered in the same way as your eye would take in the surroundings, leading you around the mental workings of the artists in an immediate, visceral way, as your vision flits back and forth around the picture, curious about what it will encounter next.

Yinka Shonibare #5

"Less than a decade ago, when Yinka Shonibare RA bought his studio fronting on to the Regent’s Canal in east London, the neighbourhood was still, in his words, “distinctly rough at the edges and slightly scary”. Now this area of Hackney is alive with artisan cafés and the whizz-ding sound of expensive bicycles speeding along the regenerated towpath. Shonibare is at the epicentre of urban gentrification. Elegant in sharp blue suit, he presumably set the trend rather than followed? He chuckles gently at the idea. “As if. This was always an area with a lot of studios and a lot of artists, still affordable back in 2008.” The building used to be a carpet warehouse.

Shonibare opened up the roof space, had the partition walls pulled down, sand-blasted the wood floor and instructed his architect to “renovate it so that it is still like a warehouse and feels as if nothing has been done”. Exposed brick, whitewash and a big skylight achieve exactly that. The first-floor space, airy and well ordered, is where he develops most of his projects, and where his team of three work. “And it’s where I meet with sculptors, costumiers, photographers, printmakers – the people I collaborate with.”

He draws and makes other work on paper either here, or at his studio at home in Bow. His series of prints about twins are displayed on the wall.
