Fiona Neil is the Head of Projects, having previously co-directed an Australian art consulting firm, her role at Hoxton Art is to assist clients in curating and managing art projects as well as facilitating collaborations between artists, architects and designers.
The opening show includes a range of photography, painting, sculpture and installation works each exploring the sublime through the contemporary landscape, as well as macro and micro realms. The exhibition runs until the 17th of June.
