Exhibition March-June 2024

In Gillian Holding’s recent paintings  juxtaposed strangely positioned figures, objects and animals haunt the canvases. The presence of the unexpected in the imagery invites us to consider the surreal contradictions that characterise today’s world. Many people inescapably experience a sense of dissonance when confronted by mediated “reality” . We see increasing feelings of alienation, helplessness, fragility and entrapment encapsulated in these works through ambiguous imagery of forms lost and trapped in their surroundings.
