Katie Hammond Solo Exhibition Lacuna Little Lake A
Katie Hammond Solo Exhibition Lacuna Little Lake Aberdeen Arts Centre
Gray’s School of Art Graduate Katie Hammond is hosting a solo exhibition at Aberdeen Arts Centre at 33 King Street with an opening evening on Friday 28th June 2019 from 6pm - 9pm. Entry is free and there will be drinks and nibbles provided at the opening. The exhibition will then be open Tuesday to Saturday 10am - 4pm until 30th July 2019.
The exhibition will include her new mixed media paintings. This collection comes together as a calming oasis for visitors to wander through. Katie finds painting therapeutic and uses unusual processes and layers different materials onto her canvases. She often paints with her hands and experiments with different surfaces. The theme and process of creating the paintings is very tactile which really helps her personally as an escape from the struggles of having Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.
Lacuna; A pause or a break in text, painting or musical work.
Katie invites you to take some time out to breathe.
She layers encaustic wax, oils and varnish, and hopes to create ‘Dreamscapes’ which encompass transitory moments within nature. Her inspiration comes from Robert Macfarlane and Nan Shepherd’s beautiful writings which often personify nature’s pools of water. They describe nature as breathing alongside us; creating moments that lull us into a dream-like calm. So if the wild is a living entity, try to imagine deeper into the water in an attempt to visualise what it sees; looking back up at the trees as they peer down into it. This is how nature must see itself.
