An exhibition of paintings by Karen Loader


An exhibition exploring the differences and similarities between place and space. Place can be seen as somewhere real and tangible, that can be experienced through the senses, and space as something abstract that is felt rather than observed. Loader's work explores the transition from one to the other and how both are inevitably intertwined.

Her artistic process begins with walking around a place and documenting it photographically.  For this exhibition, Loader explored her local neighbourhood - the area between Holloway and Highgate, taking in the back streets and alleyways that branch off the A1 carriageway. For her, moving through a place physically helps her to construct a rhythmic interpretation of it and, when combined with focused observations, the character or personality of the place starts to emerge.
