Kate Sherman: COAST
22 June 2019 – 30 June 2019
Photography, childhood innocence and natural human curiosity are the subjects of an intriguing new series of oil paintings by Sussex artist Kate Sherman.
Sherman’s works depict the urban landscape along the Sussex coast and are made as if driving past in a car. They have a startling photo-realist quality that evokes childhood memories. Seeming slightly out of focus and capturing the unique bleached light of the region, these paintings have an uncomfortable voyeuristic quality.
“In these paintings I’m paying homage to my childhood. I grew up on the coast and I wanted in some way to recapture that sacred time of safety and innocence.” – Kate Sherman
