Phoebe English teams up with photographer Polly Brown to release Floating | Falling | Drowning | Flying, alongside the eponymous exhibition at NOW Gallery.
Greenwich Peninsula’s recently opened NOW Gallery is hosting Phoebe English’s first exhibition, merging the worlds of fashion and art once again. Showcasing English’s creative process – with an in depth look at her sketches, notebooks and pieces – Polly Brown was inspired by her experimental designs. Phoebe English has risen to fame rapidly since her graduation in 2011, is illustrated through an expansive archive of powerful imagery, reference points and drawings.
Set within the modern, sleek space of the NOW Gallery, English and her creative team created a gothic tactile introspective. Brown shot the experience on film, providing images for English’ debut book Floating | Falling | Drowning | Flying, which also includes an exclusive behind the scenes look at the NOW commissioned installation – a draped bead-constructed centre piece. Brown’s beautiful low-key images epitomise the details and process of a celebrated British talent with polaroid charm.
