THE QUIETER YOU ARE THE MORE YOU CAN HEAR
KATE WALSH, ANDREA HUGHES & OLGA TSARA
6 to 28 July 2018
In a cacophonous world, with incessant demands on our senses, we sometimes lose our centeredness. Inspired by the notion that quietness enables heightened perception, three artists respond with work that depicts states of remembrance and peace; states achieved through concentration and meditation. They are works celebrating remembered exotic lands, rich and visceral memory planes, and emerging fleeting sensations.
Evocative of memories of discovery, Andrea Hughes’ work uses layers of colour to create depth and movement and achieves a serene energy. Kate Walsh’s watercolours show landscapes of silence: the snowfields of Sweden where spirit and soul became quiet and sounds from the natural world can filter through. Olga Tsara creates still lifes using nostalgic motifs. Receding perspectives allude to the passing of time and the dimming of memory.
