Watch: Rebecca Harper introduces ‘Concrete Shadows’
Rebecca Harper introduces her new exhibition Concrete Shadows at Huxley-Parlour Gallery. Harper’s large-scale and lyrical paintings are rooted in a practice of drawing intensely from life. She interweaves these drawings from life with reconstructed scenes from memories, along with other mediated and second-hand imagery. Balancing both the particular and the universal, Harper seamlessly combines these many sources to produce plausible and richly detailed scenes that often feel dreamlike in their vivid and expressionistic colour palettes.
