"We're Lovin' It," the latest exhibition at Artlab, is composed of a series of collaborative paintings by the U.K'.s Polly Phipps-Holland and Lebanon's Tarek Salhany.Created as part of their collaborative art project The 6th Floor Collective, which presents social and political critique and engagement through art, the series explores the impact of capitalism and materialism on a blinded society.The series showcases 13 portraits and landscapes in bright acrylics or ink and charcoal, plus a collection of 24 small drawings.The portraits depict factories, machinery and fumes exploding from peoples' heads, while the landscapes show shoppers obliviously surrounded by piles of rubbish.The artists believe there should be more collaboration in the art world and hope to bring other international artists into The 6th Floor Collective.Phipps-Holland and Salhany have many projects in the works that they hope to explore in the coming year, such as a project that would toy with digital glitches when creating art.
