Gallery Pop presents two outstanding contemporary artists from Moray.
Lossiemouth-based artist, Leah Davis, investigates existence and the Self through Pop surreal portraiture. Using Jungian art therapy techniques, Leah’s honest and direct images from her conscious and unconscious build narratives that blur the lines between real life and imagination. She catches us off guard when we are innocently intrigued by the combination of archetypal imagery and pop colours but are then provided with a place to reflect and converse with our own unconscious.
Toni Harrower’s paintings follow a ‘system’ and a set of restraints that determine colour, composition and scale. Working in a repetitious manner, Toni creates individual patterns and repeated geometric shapes which form a grid-like structure, building up layers to express the passing of time and explore the physicality of paint.As the paint gains depth and weight, the cells begin to merge, relating to the uncontrollable events that happen in life, and the notion of the mind – and life – falling apart.
