May Your Thoughts Write the Rest

Selected dates from Friday 17 December 2021 to Sunday 27 February 2022

Duff House

Tickets available soon

An Exhibition by the abstract artist Toni Harrower best described in her own words....

"A showcase of paintings with corresponding poetry displayed beside one another. The paintings are a direct response to the poems and show how we can communicate in different forms. I select significant words from the poems and use these to generate the titles of the paintings. These titles then relate to my own colour coded alphabet and provide a colour palate to start painting. From this point, each piece follows a basic set of rules - working from left to right, top to bottom. This forces me to use colours I would not usually choose or pair together.

Working in a repetitious manner, I create individual patterns and repeating geometric shapes which form a grid-like structure. The grids provide a level of control over the paint which is otherwise unrestricted.

The build-up of layers expresses the passing of time. As the paint gains depth and weight, gravity and a lack of control come into play, causing the paint to fall away, with cells merging into one another. The paintings highlight the many ways a piece of writing or artwork can be interpreted."
