Sunday Art Fair, London
October 3–6 2019
Steve Turner is pleased to present a four-artist booth at Sunday Art Fair featuring new works by Lydia Blakeley (North Yorkshire); Dominic Dispirito (London); Jesse Pollock (Kent) and Kevin McNamee-Tweed (Iowa City). Their disparate output works well together as each shares an interest in a form of regionalism–local history, culture and geography–that is tinged with wry humor.
Lydia Blakeley (b. 1980, Bracknell, Berkshire) earned an MFA at Goldsmiths, London (2019) and a BFA at Leeds College of Art (2016). Her work has been included in exhibitions at. PlazaPlaza, London (2019), J Hammond Projects, London (2019); SET, London (2019); Enter Art Fair, Copenhagen (with Kristin Hjellegjerde, London, 2019); and Paradise Works, Manchester (2019). Blakeley will have her debut American solo exhibition with Steve Turner, Los Angeles in January 2020. She lives and works in North Yorkshire, England.
Dominic Dispirito (b. 1982, London) earned a BFA from Middlesex University, London (2013) and an MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art, London (2017). Dispirito has had solo exhibitions at Steve Turner, Los Angeles (2019) and Anna Kultys Gallery, London (2018). He has also had work in group exhibitions at Steve Turner (2019) and The Dot Project, London (2017). He will have his second solo exhibition at Steve Turner in January 2020. Dispirito lives and works in London.

After living in Austin, Texas for seven years, he moved to Iowa City to enroll in the MFA program at the University of Iowa where he will earn an MFA (2020).
