“Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight. / Red sky at morning, shepherd’s warning.”

About

Louise Reynolds’ solo exhibition with Unit delves into the complexities of current affairs. By focusing on the fleeting nature of the news and the imbalanced ways in which information is disseminated, the artist hopes to undo the impermanence of news cycles that we consume daily. The exhibition’s title, Red Sky at Morning, is drawn from an ancient rhyme that signifies the impending threat of an ominous weather event for shepherds working in fields. For Reynolds, the idiom sums up the idea of dark times both present and future. The implied promise of “shepherd’s delight” still lingers, however, and is encapsulated in a series of more light-hearted works that remind viewers of the simple joys of shared experience.

Her series of drawings is therefore characterised by a “high/low” perspective, combining seemingly contrasting narratives to question the hierarchy of news stories. Through a unique form of magical realism, Reynolds attempts to navigate the information overload from contemporary media outlets and challenges the narratives that influence our view of the world. Ultimately, Red Sky at Morning offers no resolutions but aims instead to use visual culture as a way of processing the variety of information we are faced with every day.
