31 March – 12 May
Pip Dickens – Toward the Light
A Touring exhibition by Bradford Museums and Galleries.
A collection of recent and new paintings and drawings (whilst in residency at Cartwright Hall Art Gallery and Cliffe Castle Museum, Keighley) Pip Dickens’ paintings explore notions of extremes and visual confusion – a kind of ‘terrible beauty’ and she has been described as an ‘inveterate flirter with the alchemy of paint’. In this exhibition we are invited to suspend belief and become voyeurs – peering into strange worlds of natural phenomena, phantasmagoria, fictions and dark histories where shadow, fog, dust and illumination create atmospheres that are both familiar and strange. Sound compositions accompany the exhibition by Monty Adkins composer, performer, and professor of experimental electronic music and audio art at the University of Huddersfield. He has drawn upon a range of paintings in this exhibition to produce extraordinary evocative sound pieces.
Artists’ talk at the Brindley on Saturday 21st April, 12:30pm
Pip Dickens and Monty Adkins will be speaking about their work.
Free event, all welcome, refreshments will be served.
