Kaye Donachie at Maureen Paley
Silent As Glass
17 February – 29 March 2018
Kaye Donachie's paintings distil and redeem historical images of specific female protagonists, often imbued with a sense of place. In Silent as Glass the collated writings and images of poets such as Katherine Mansfield and Iris Tree provide inspiration. The narratives within the paintings are given structure by an almost visceral sensation of light that outlines and gives intensity to their surfaces, evoking a poetic image. Still life, landscape and portraiture are presented together in this exhibition. These new images echo one another and attempt to compress stories, voices and emotional labour into a reconfigured form.
The second part of the exhibition will be on view at MORENA DI LUNA, Hove24 March - 17 June 2018
