“A gem in Sevenoaks. Peaceful & Thoughtful. Thank You.”
A note left in the comments box at Kaleidoscope.
Sevenoaks Kaleidoscope Gallery was the third venue on our tour. The gallery space was intimate, yet expansive in some ways. This presented an opportunity to create ‘stories’ by grouping works together, for example, the relationship of Cathy Lomax’s Glass Menagerie projecting towards Annabel Dover’s Iris’ Stocking with its reflection of Mel Titmuss’ Woman with Cardigan and in relation to David Minton’s Peripheral Vision and Hayley Harrison’s Her tells a compelling story of memory, loss, longing and nostalgia. I was particularly struck by placing Cathy’s work in relationship with Annabel’s, it was a private little ‘wow’ for me.
We had some further discussions during ‘Artists in Conversation’ about other of these curatorial decisions. The topic was ‘Space’ and it was a very interesting discussion for both the artists, Melanie Titmuss, David Minton and myself, with regard to our use of space in our work and the consequence of space in my curatorial decisions throughout the project.
