Solo Exhibition of paintings and drawings by Pip Dickens


Extensive solo show of paintings and drawings by Pip Dickens described as ‘an inveterate flirter with the alchemy of paint'. Towards the Light is an exhibition whose common theme is the dramatic relationship we have with light and darkness. This exhibition reveals the diversity in which the artist approaches this subject through a range of contexts and painting and drawing methodologies. Pip Dickens' subject matter ranges from cinematic formats, classical literature and the Space Race to chandeliers, ribbons and lace. Their distinctness belies a common exploration through the darkness towards illumination, sometimes physical sometimes metaphysical...silver birch trees yearn for the moon, unknown presences hide behind lace veils, shadows hold domain in empty spaces and chandeliers burn bright like ships on a dark ocean. Sometimes mournful, sometimes celebratory. Touring Exhibition.The exhibition is supported by Arts Council England, Yorkshire and Museums Libraries & Archives Council.
