I Want To See: Lucianna Whittle

12 May 2017 - 16 May 2017

Since her sell out show in 2012, Lucianna has been quietly working to produce the body of paintings for ‘I want to see’, the exhibition that marks her return to the public gallery setting after a deep exploration into her personal artistic practice.

Rooted in the spiritual interplay of darkness with light, Lucianna’s paintings are challenging, uplifting and universal. To be confronted by paintings of this scale (think up to 2m) can feel disconcerting before the careful balance of colour and light reveal a softness and sense of opening, that can elevate the viewer. Come prepared to be moved: the effect of these paintings may just stay with you.
