Windows looking out onto a typical spring day in London, with grey skies, rain that seems to not know when to stop (if ever) and people rushing past in their dark coats, clutching umbrellas overhead. On the walls are other windows, misty, foggy, through which are men and women are waiting to be discovered. The images are timeless – are they reminiscent of another era, or are they contemporary? It is impossible to decide, but there are hints – the hairstyles, the shadows of the clothes, with white collars contrasting with dark shirts, blouses or jackets.
Through these windows in the classical architectural setting of Lazarides in Sackville Street in Mayfair, the Italian Miaz Brothers invite viewers to lift the veils of these anonymous people and enter into the fog to find their own meanings of the people in the misty atmosphere within the paintings. There is no right and wrong – the view is invited to decide.
