​Pippy Houldsworth Gallery is delighted to present a solo exhibition of new paintings by British artist Aimée Parrott, following a two-person show at the gallery with Helen Frankenthaler in 2015.

About

Previously, Parrott played with pictorial depth by building up veil-like layers of pigmentation through a complex process of dying and screen-printing. In this new body of work, Parrott incorporates sculptural elements within her paintings in order to explore the canvas as a type of barrier. Often puncturing the surface with stitching or padded strips of fabric, the eye teeters between physical elements attached to the front and ethereal washes of ink that recede backwards into the weave of the canvas. Taking Italo Calvino's 1967 short story 'Blood, Sea' as a point of inspiration, this exhibition encompasses Parrott's ongoing fascination with notions of connectivity, skin and internal/external space.
