Show Title: Little Worlds: Skopelos Dreamings
Show Information: These works are about space. The opportunity to paint on the island of Skopelos, off the coast of Greece, opened my eyes to the brilliant blues, greens, corals and umbers that occupy the space between earth, sea and sky. Squinting in the intense sunlight, one can imagine the curve of the far horizon. The studio is high on the side of a steep hill overlooking a cove: the translucent water holds coral reefs, submerged rocks, a teeming ecosystem, all below the sun-baked landscape that sits in between. At night I dreamed about these spaces and each day I recreated them.
Artist: Harriet Lesser
Show Title: Red Dot
Show Information: Just before an exhibition with the Royal Academy in 1832, artist JMW Turner walked up to his featured painting Helvoetsluys and added a small dot of vermillion. It was later said that this act showed that “…real artistry lies in restraint and understanding.” The single red dot became a recurring feature in many of Turner’s works. Turner’s red dot, and what it stands for, has influenced Harriet Lesser’s new series of works, which are compositions of both intensity and restraint.
