Rachel Deacon returns to the Catto Gallery for her fourth exhibition, painting her strong and beguiling women. In composition, they echo back to the classical masters but there’s also a narrative focus to her scenes with a hint of intrigue and conspiracy in those female gatherings.
Helen Sinclair pounds the beaches of south Wales looking for debris, driftwood and other found objects to turn into her beautiful and moving works of art. As befits someone so rooted in the natural world, Helen’s primary subject is the human figure. It’s a testament to her skill and control that she can conjure such profound emotion from just a few elegant lines.
Poul explains the aesthetic draw of the ‘hybrid’ environment. “I’m interested in the effect that man has on the landscape,” he says. “This human impact is not always detrimental to the human eye. On the contrary. My work usually features these landscapes because they make such interesting contours and patterns.”
For this exhibition Catto Gallery has gathered together a selection of seven contemporary artists who are each dedicated to exploring ideas and images from their own imaginative worlds.
