“You know this story, it’s Greek.” 

For his first London solo show, Australian artist Woody Mellor presents At Least it’s Warm. A play on the resonances of Greek myth and tragedy that echo throughout life and popular culture, Woody’s exhibition of new work exploits this cultural tendency as he sets the stage for an Orphean journey to the antipodean underworld. 

Layered with his own awkward dependence on pop-cultural references as a sort of social prosthesis, Woody rehashes this well-worn tale of the artist and his journey ‘down under’ in a mass of cheap theatrical tricks, papier mâché fountains, Australiana and some old Hollywood scene painting. Welcome to the underworld…where at least it’s warm.

Artist ( Description ): 

Edward Mitchell Mellor, born in June 1990 to Mike and Cathy at Cabrini Hospital, Malvern, Australia. Woody graduated in 2012 with first class honours from the only fine art program in Western Australia, Curtin University, and was 2013 Artist in residence at the Port Gregory Bait Shop. Upon completing an MA in Painting at The Royal College of Art in London in 2016, Woody Mellor became the second recipient of the Michael Victor Travelling Scholarship for art writing and will often spend his mornings penning fake obituaries for his friends... he assures me it’s not as strange as it sounds.
