It can be difficult as young artists to present our work to an audience without having to pay exorbitant fees, make commercially oriented art, or justify our work to a jury. Domesticated is an attempt at bringing an informal twist to the professional. The title of Studio Appaix’s first show, refers to its location, a home. Diane Appaix-Castro has long wanted to start a gallery from her home as she plans to continue to move around the world bringing her gallery with her. She hopes that an at-home gallery will also provide a more inclusive and relaxed environment as she believes that art should be about people and making connections rather than adhering to the strictly formal approach many galleries have. The aim of this show is to provide a platform for young artists.
