Exhibition 5 DECEMBER- 31 JANUARY 2021
Private View 11 DECEMBER 4 – 7pm
A solo exhibition of works on paper, selected by curator C.A. Halpin, from three of Herrick’s recent painting series: Swallow, The Actors and Together.
Imagined, characters in conversation with each other, the artist and the audience.
Combining her early dance and drama training with a fine art degree background has meant a continual evolvement of a highly physicalised core dynamic in Alice Herrick’s works on paper.
The flow of thought and action, where masks and tricks of light and shade reveal truer tensions and hidden narratives in plain sight, is disguised in decorous ambiguity.
Our gaze tells us a simple tale, but more time and intimate observation bring clues and signs that this portrait or landscape may also be a map to another world; the glance of an eye, the twist of a smile, the curve of a hand, the motionlessness of spheres, captured on a point in time, are all aspects of the artist’s own inner world, in a consciousness of which we are all part when we choose to leave ourselves at the door. Julian Firth, 2020
