British artists Pippa Gatty & Stan Sandig have been brought together by The Portico Library to present a combined exhibition of recent paintings and sculptures, complementing each other and their historic setting with thoughtful, elegant works.


Pippa Gatty’s paintings have been described as revealing a "borderland between the imaginary and the real", their diminutive characters seeming to emerge momentarily from elemental squalls and swells before withdrawing again behind the veil. Where Stan Sandig’s refined, substantial forms are tangibly ‘real’, their dynamic lines point to other planes – dimensions beyond our sight, and remind us of the simmering energy contained within their mineral bodies.

The title of Pippa and Stan’s exhibition, PARAMENDER, refers to devices used for fixing parallax, where two lines of sight are not aligned. The artists' two different perspectives are offered here together through their shared interaction with The Portico's collection and space, accompanied by illustrations from the library's books on astronomy, mineralogy and art.
