About

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the inaugural exhibition of the After Nyne Gallery on February 1st, 2018.

We are showcasing the work of photographer Gillian Hyland in a week-long pop-up at Studio 7, 1a Old Nichol St, London E2 7HR. 

Gillian Hyland creates supernatural staged images, presented as film stills or dramatic moments. Hyland’s unsettling mise-en-scene are full of sex and desire, sadness and nostalgia. Narratives that are psychologically evocative – at once sublimely theatrical yet poignant. Hyland describes herself as an image maker and story teller.

Her dramatic photographs are based on her own poems, and depict characters in human dramas and isolated emotional situations. Frozen in time, solitary and vulnerable moments are presented in glorious technicolor and timeless sets.

Encapsulating her memories and emotions in poems she then transforms these into images, offering a new perspective. The imagery plays with our notions of nostalgia, and taps into society’s cultural understanding of feelings and beliefs. The composition of each image suggests a larger narrative within a single moment.

On the evening of the private view, the artist will be introduced by Claire Meadows, Editor in Chief of After Nyne Magazine and will be presenting a short discussion about her work and creative methodology.

There will be copies of Gillian's book Words in Sight available to buy on the evening of the private view. 

We would be delighted if you would join us for this special private view, which takes place from 6:30 - 9pm on February 1st. After the private view, Gillian's work will be available to see at Studio 7 by appointment.
