3rd – 30th September
A solo exhibition of recent paintings by Henrietta Simson inspired by the gardens and site of Tremenheere that explore landscape through time (history), presence, embodiment and materiality.
Henrietta Simson’s work reappraises the visual and spatial structures that inform western notions of landscape and seeks to move beyond their shaping of landscape as ‘de facto’ representational image towards an idea of mutuality and embodied form. She uses different media to make works that re-imagine landscape and our relationship with it by drawing on affective and material alternatives to realism. These push at the boundaries between the landscape image and its object, between illusion and embodied presence. They involve re-visiting the beginnings of the western visual tradition and plotting a different trajectory for the landscape image at this crucial juncture of history.
Tremenheere Gallery is open Tuesday – Saturday, 11am – 4pm. Closed Sundays and Mondays. FREE entry – no need to pre-book visits. The exhibition will be launched with an opening event on Friday 2nd September, 6-8pm.
