Hermetickal Exhibition Katherine Tulloh
I spotted an exhibition in Art Licks list Their link here if you want to hear about art openings in London.
The exhibition was Hermetickals by Katherine Tulloh her website here. and was in Transition Gallery gallery website here.
It was Katherine's interest in Swedenborg, his alchemical work and his dream diaries that drew me to her work.. On display a series of vibrant watercolours, which included, moons and suns, figures, symbolic animals and forms and the body. A large drawing in red of the human capillary system was drawn on the walls and was included in a number of the paintings.
Interestingly the paintings were displayed as torn out sketchbook pages and unframed. There was also a film with layers of paintings and a soundtrack that included excepts from Swedenborg's writings, which was quite hypnotic in parts and worked well with the dream like imagery.
Transition Gallery also produced a small book of Katherine's work and had other artists books for sale. It was good to find another small gallery in the east end.
