THE REAL THING by Simon Shepherd
Two global icons – the cross and the Coca-Cola brand, both claiming to be The Real Thing. What do we worship in the 21st century? Has the focus shifted from the worship of the spiritual to worship of the material? Can we see what is ‘real’? This piece on show currently at the Chaiya Art Awards Exhibition at the gallery@oxo until 8th April 2018.
It was my privilege to write the Chaiya Art Awards coffee table book which complements the exhibition and is on sale at the venue.
