Catching the Light - Liz Shreeve

16 Jun 2018 - 26 Jun 2018

A retrospective of the last few years of Liz Shreeve's practice which investigates light, colour and the mathematics of nature.

My practice is very much based on visual observations of the natural and the man-made environment. As an ex-scientist I have an understanding of the underlying laws of nature; of their simplicity and of the interaction of those simple laws, layer upon layer, to produce complexity. If you focus, one at a time on those layers, there may be some chance of understanding. My work is an attempt to strip things back to their simple rules, to recognise and acknowledge the patterns and the order that can exist in pure uninfluenced form. Like scales on a butterfly’s wings the paper folds and curls catch and transform the light, turning it into a coloured, radiant cloud. I want my work to be a celebration of the visual; a recognition that delight really does have something to do with light.

Join the artist at 2pm on Saturday 16 June to celebrate the opening of the exhibition.
