​Pippy Houldsworth Gallery is very pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by acclaimed British artist Bill Woodrow.

About

In Fata Morgana, Crocker Land and the odd Superior Mirage, Woodrow explores optical phenomena that occur in the natural world. Playing tricks with the viewer's perception, glacial landscapes are subjected to mirage-like distortion where sheets of ice and surreal objects seemingly float in mid-air. In the same vein as his cut-out sculptures from the 1980s, Woodrow continues to play with notions of materiality, yet this new body of work also encompasses the artist's longstanding preoccupation with climate change; igloos sit atop expanses of black oil, whilst towers of ice melt away in alarmingly vibrant shades of red and blue. In this hallucinatory world, not everything is as illusory as it seems.
