    Poppy Waddilove is a London-based painter and fashion illustrator. A regular attendee at London Fashion Week, where she sketches live from the runway, Waddilove's work is inspired by dream-like emotion, capturing the line and gestures of the body and creating spontaneity of movement.

    Waddilove will be illustrating here in our SHOWstudio space over the LFW collections! Follow our social media platforms to watch her live or head to the SHOWstudio Tumblr to stay updated on Poppy Waddilove's take on the LFW collections!

    Alba Hodsoll's show 'PoV' at Cob Gallery

    Last night, young British artist Alba Hodsoll opened her show 'PoV' at the Cob Gallery, 25 Royal College Street. Curated by SHOWstudio contributor Dominic Jones and founder of GIRLS ONLY Antonia Marsh, the show explores perspective, the representation of the nude form and the question of anonymity in intimacy.  

    'PoV' borrows its title from an acronym that describes a genre of pornography in which sexual acts are filmed and watched from the point of view of one partner. Lit by imposing red bulbs, the works explore scenes of sexual activity, a concept that becomes apparent only with a shift of perspective. Hodsoll creates limbs, genitals and juicy flanks through rounded areas of colour and fluid lines implying negation of space. Distorting the relationship between viewer and subject, the pieces force the viewer into a narcissistic self-comparison with the work. 

    The show features both large scale canvases and delicate minute works on linen, board, paper or leather. The red 'Sold' dots peppered the walls of the gallery at the Private View last night, a clear indication that people want a piece of 'PoV'. Hodsoll maintains a presence in her work. Her heavily cropped and zoomed-in sex scenes can’t help but lead one to wonder where the artist is viewing the scene and who precisely is present, inspiring an inevitable voyeuristic interest in not only the works, but their creator as well.

    ‘PoV’ is open at the Cob Gallery from 9 – 25 February 2017.

    Watch Gary Aspden's 'North' Interview play at Claire de Rouen

    To coincide with the launch of North: Identity, Photography, Fashion at the Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool, SHOWstudio launched an interview with brand consultant and self-proclaimed trainer obsessive Gary Aspden.

    The interview sees Aspden discuss his early teenage years and sportswear as a symbol of aspiration. 'I loved Armani at that time because the logo had the same initials as mine,' says Aspden.

    Over the next three days you can pop into Soho bookstore Claire de Rouen where the interview will be screening! Thanks to Lucy Moore
