Simon Averill 'Point of Focus' at Tremenheere Gallery
Anima Mundi, in partnership with Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, presents ‘Point of Focus’; a solo exhibition of recent multi-layered and luminous paintings by Simon Averill.
In these paintings, Averill re-considers what might take place within momentary instances of seeing; they are an exploration of the ways in which sight, memory and perception interact. These paintings are a translation of, and receptiveness to, intimate time spent within place and nature. Nature is of course, always changing, always in flux. The paintings respond to these unpredictable, fleeting moments of naturally occurring optical phenomenon and distortions to the senses. Experienced physically and biologically, in place and in time, something is present that was not there before. The experience is recovered after a lapse in time, through memory.
The exhibition will be presented on the upper floor of Tremenheere Gallery at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, Gulval, Penzance, Cornwall TR20 8YL.
