New Light - Abigail Reynolds11. Mar - 5. Apr 13 / ended Plymouth College of Art Gallery
9.00-5.00pm / Monday to Friday
A reflection on the city of Plymouth, a view of which operates as the fourth wall for the gallery.
Plymouth is a relic of the ideal post war city as designed by Abercrombie in the 1940's. Reynolds contextualises Plymouth by placing it as a vision for the future alongside other realisations of communal ideologies striving to shape a better future.
Picking up on formal relations between disparate forms, Reynolds creates chimes, doublings, and echoes across the works in the gallery, and outwards into the forms of the city itself.
Reynolds' exhibition owes it's title to a framed work in the exhibition, which shows a 1953 painting of the same title by Kenneth Noland, which has been clipped from a 1965 book and seemingly thrown into a city photographed in the 1950's. The geometric form proposed by Noland seems to hold out a promise of renewal, contemporaneous with the city plan of Plymouth.
Reynolds lives and works in St Just, Cornwall. She is represented by Ambach & Rice Los Angeles, and is currently artist in residence with Rambert Dance Company.
