Pippy Houldsworth Gallery is pleased to present Hypnagogia, a group exhibition comprising new work by Gabriella Boyd, Jadé Fadojutimi, Maria Farrar, and Makiko Kudo running from 22 June to 3 August 2018.
Hypnagogia refers to a transitional state of mind between wakefulness and sleep in which fluid, hyper-associative images are conjured. Drawing upon this type of consciousness, Pippy Houldsworth Gallery brings together a group of four young female artists whose paintings offer a lucid interpretation of reality. Using memories, dreams or archival materials as their reference points, each artist views the world around them through a subjective filter. Fluctuating between abstraction and figuration, the works in the exhibition encompass how each artist works indirectly from life to create new forms of meaning.
