This summer we welcome leading British artist, Rachel Howard, to the gallery for her largest solo public gallery exhibition in the UK.

About

Over a dozen new paintings, ranging from large-scale canvases to smaller works, alter the rules of how the medium of oil paint is approached. Works such as You Can Save Me, Lean To and North draw on maritime themes to investigate the sense of being at odds with the world.

Her distinctive, abstract paintings have been globally recognised and are held in many prestigious international art collections. She paints a multitude of human experiences and emotions and, for this exhibition in Hastings, has created a significant body of new work.

Rachel says 'I grew up on a farm near the sea on the North East coast of England, and having a permanent horizon every day to look at gives a wonderful reassurance in what can be at times a very uncertain world. My show at Jerwood Gallery explores both these aspects of certainty and uncertainty.'

In addition to the exhibition, Howard will be curating a one-room display which will showcase some of her favourite works from the Jerwood Collection.

Part of the gallery's summer Festival of the Sea.
