Paintings for Dissappearing
Exhibition text by Alastair Whitton
The paintings operate as a search for connection in times of isolation and apartness. (…) The paintings glow; they are filled with halos of colour and shimmering light. They reach out to us. They resist being experienced as one emotion or read with a single interpretation. They are light and shadow, interconnected and contingent like breathing in and exhaling. They are a search for wonder in times of hardship and offer us a way to wrestle with their co-existence.
