Few things in art quite capture the multiple meanings of shadows. Whether they are used to create a sinister atmosphere, show duplicity or emphasise the beating rays of a midday sun, the shadow will give interest and a sense of drama to any piece.
They raise a number of questions but also work to invoke a sense of brightness and vitality to summer scenes and sunny skies. In this exhibition every possible meaning of the shadow is explored and it is presented as a walker’s companion, a boat’s resting place and refuge for the anguished individual. These images are contrasted wonderfully with the bright, block colours of Katherine Lubar’s quirky pieces.
In fact, what better way to explain this exhibition than being one of contrasts? The drama exists in these differences and gives us such a wonderful collection of artwork to display to the customers of LondonArt.
