Presenting Beer and Guns, the solo exhibition of Lewis Hazelwood-Horner, winner of The Columbia Threadneedle Prize 2016 and Visitors' Choice Award.

All the works in Beer and Guns were created during Lewis' residencies at a number of London businesses, focusing on the theme of craft in London. The works reveal how old practices have evolved over time, showing the importance of the lightness of touch of a skilled and experienced craftsman (or woman), that cannot be replicated by machine. Many of the works relate to brewing and gun manufacture, hence the exhibition’s title.

His residencies have included:

  • Harvey’s Brewery
  • Howling Hops Brewery
  • Redemption Brewery
  • Scotney Farm
  • Hopfarm
  • Truman Brewery
  • Kernel Brewery
  • Lobbs Bespoke Shoemakers
  • Holland & Holland – Gun makers
  • James Smith & Sons – Umbrella makers
  • Freed Pointe Shoes – Ballet Shoe makers

Alison Jefferis, Head of Corporate Affairs at Columbia Threadneedle Investments, says: “We are delighted to support Lewis’ solo exhibition. Columbia Threadneedle has sponsored this Prize since 2008 and is proud to provide a platform that has enabled artists to further their career.”

Katie Sheasby, Operations Manager at Howling Hops Brewery, describes a painting of her colleague, a brewer, at work as “a beautiful celebration of the otherwise unseen and little acknowledged hard work undertaken every day by a really humble craftsperson - especially as Gianmaria was brewing in the basement of the Cock Tavern so was literally out of sight and underground!”

She also found “something very timeless about both the process of painting and the process of brewing, which I think really came through the finished piece - it could have been 100 years ago as easily as it was 2015! It also captures a unique time within the beer world when the more ‘old fashioned’ labour intensive processes of brewing, rather than the larger scale more industrial ones, are enjoying a revival.”

Samantha Rigby, Director of The Redemption Brewery, said of Lewis’ residency: “Lewis was such an engaging artist, bringing the spirit of our brewery to life through his paintbrush. Lewis has an extraordinary talent.”

Biography

Lewis Hazelwood-Horner, 24, lives and works in Enfield. He attended the Byam Shaw School of Art and the London Atelier of Representational Art.

Lewis won The Columbia Threadneedle Prize for Figurative Art Today in February, after his work Salt in Tea was chosen by the Selection Panel from 3,828 entries. Salt in Tea was painted following a two-year residency at the bespoke umbrella shop, James Smith & Sons, in London’s West End. The painting's title refers to when the craftsmen jokingly put salt or too much sugar in one another’s tea. In a first for the competition, Salt in Tea was also named ‘Visitors' Choice’ from the exhibition of 92 works shown at Mall Galleries. As the winner, Lewis received a cash prize of £20,000, as well as this solo exhibition at Mall Galleries, and £10,000 for the Visitors' Choice Award.
