‘Ways of Seeing’ features award-winning emerging artist Latisha Reihill. It presents her new unique abstract paintings, a series of carefully balanced and textured multi-colour compositions. Inspired by the qualities and histories of buildings and landscapes and the artist’s response to them, they can take the viewer on a visual and emotional journey.
Reihill drew inspiration for these pieces from her ways of seeing the buildings and landscapes she was influenced by throughout her life, a personal experience where memories of their shapes and colours are tinged with feelings.
The artist’s memories and her intuitive painting method guided the artistic process behind these works. The result is a series of harmonious abstract compositions, often alternating loose geometrical elements with more irregular marks, bright and warm tones with darker and colder ones, blocks of colours with layers of paints. These compositions can also convey different moods, from a euphoric joy to a sense of calmness and tranquillity.
The paintings with their variety mirror the diverse qualities of buildings and landscapes they were inspired by, and the diverse feelings they arose. They also invite viewers to engage with them both on a visual and emotional level, to find their own ways of seeing them.
‘Ways of Seeing’ is curated by Francesca Biondi and Latisha Reihill.
All works are available to view and purchase from Gallery 545, online or at the exhibition.
