Pippa Gatty: Against the Fall of the Night

10 May 2019 until 27 May 2019
Arusha Gallery

Exhibition opening (free): Thursday 9 May, 6-8pm

Pippa Gatty’s paintings are an exploration of time and space. This exhibition will present a new body of works rooted in the language and history of painting, and the discourse between that and her natural environment, the wildness and isolation of her Isle of Mull home on the edge of the North Atlantic.

Her paintings are generally dark and small in scale, hovering on the edge of abstraction. These rich microcosms document her experience of her environment, her sense of wonder and foreboding, and reflect a nostalgia for the promises of the Arcadian tradition, one of man in harmony with nature. A human or animal presence is often suggested but seldom depicted, although a consciousness and a primordial feature of things are always sensed.
