As of today, Now Gallery in London is home to I Don’t Have Time For This by illustrator Hattie Stewart. The commission – which is the gallery’s first in a series that celebrates the best rising talent in the fields of visual arts – continues Hattie’s well-known style made famous by her “doodle-bombing” on covers of publications such as i-D and Vogue.
The installation was commissioned by the gallery’s cultural curator Kaia Charles and will remain open until 25 June. Consisting of a large scale, floor-based artwork, Hattie’s piece is fully immersive and invites viewers to escape reality and make time.
Made up of Hattie’s subversive style, the piece incorporates a multitude of references; psychedelic art from the 60s and “the comic absurdity of hybrid post-modern classics like Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” the installation features a host of characters and patterns, giving the impression that the artwork is alive.
I Don’t Have Time For This is the first commission in Now Gallery’s Young Artist programmes which aims to work with artists who have “an unusual approach and standout visual aesthetic, to create a unique vision for the gallery space.”
