David Eastwood’s fabricated model of the bedroom studio of Giorgio Morandi acts as a provocation for the drawings and paintings in the exhibition Pseudo Studio. The 1:15 scale model interior brings to light the potential of the peripheral and ambient space within the 20th century Italian artist’s studio. Here, the vestiges of Morandi’s life become a still life; a prop to investigate the boundaries between object and image, private and public, authenticity and artifice

The myth that can shroud an artist’s life and the daily grind of its reality playfully collide in this series of paintings and drawings that David Eastwood has fashioned from a model replica of the monk-like studio of Bolognese still-life painter Giorgio Morandi (1890-1964). Both affectionate and forensic, he leaves no bottle unturned
