Parasol unit presents this major solo exhibition of paintings by Lisa Milroy bringing together a selection of her work from the past fifteen years. It explores her approaches to still life through making, looking, touch and transformation. The term ‘still life’ signals the fundamental experience of painting for Milroy, encapsulating her fascination with the relation between stillness and movement, contemplation and action. A number of paintings invite the viewer to physically interact with the work, while another painting includes a performative component, and performances will take place on a number of weekends throughout the exhibition.
Parasol unit appreciates the generous support of the Arts Council England Grants for the Arts.
