Certainty at the heart of the human experience; the confusing relations between love, life and death; communion and isolation; loyalty and betrayal – 'Romance in the Age of Uncertainty', Damien Hurst (2003) [Exhibition] The White Cube, London, 10 September – 19 October 2003
Titled You Are Human and Therefore You Are, Joshua James Small's 003 collection explores the everyday transitional states and emotions we are subjected to as humans. Centred around 'a woman in healing', Small's muse clutches her past while striding with anticipation as her story weaves through the chapters of others - looking and craving love. Brimming with emotions, some good, some not so, the collection's story makes subtle nods to Damien Hurst's interest in rebirth addressed in Romance in the Age of Uncertainty while borrowing tonal depth from artist Stephen Doherty's florals.
