Dominic Hawgood and Hannah Luxton

We’re delighted to announce that two new artists have joined the Agency: Dominic Hawgood and Hannah Luxton.

Dominic's practice combines photography, CGI, lighting design and installation.

"His images call attention to decisive and current questions about the ontological and epistemological nature of photography, while simultaneously forcing us to question the limits, tensions and articulations between real and virtual, between fact and fiction, between representation and imagination." Sérgio Mah - curator and professor at the Faculty of Human and Social Sciences & Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Lisbon.

Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2014, Dominic has had solo exhibitions at TJ Boulting, London, UK; Oonagh Young Gallery, Dublin, Ireland; and the Brighton Digital Festival X British Science Festival, Brighton, UK. He has also won the British Journal of Photography International Award and been selected as a Foam Talent.

In contrast to Dominic’s deep engagement with new image-making technologies and the relationship between the virtual and the physical, Hannah's practice explores the potential of painting, despite our familiarity with the medium and its history and tropes, to stimulate our emotions and our intellect. Her paintings have a deceptive simplicity that belies their meticulous composition in which a sparse, yet rich and readily accessible, language of motifs is used to evoke the natural world and provide the viewer with a quiet, mediative space from which to reconnect with and reconsider the world around them.

Hannah is a graduate of the Slade School of Fine Art (MA, 2012). She has exhibited widely in London and the UK in solo and group exhibitions, and internationally including India and Iceland. Residency awards include The Fljotstunga Travel Farm, Iceland (2015) and the Trelex Residency, Switzerland (2013).
