Details

This conceptual installation of paintings, sculptures and prints from the Towner Collection invites the visitor to inhabit the gallery spaces as they move through three defined settings. These immersive environments, created through the juxtaposition of the art works, inspire the imagination and encourage the viewer to find hidden connections by altering their perspective.

Enter into a monochrome landscape where the town’s folk are noticeably absent; evidence of urbanisation waits patiently for new inhabitants as a bird hovers over a craggy rock face in amongst stark dark trees. Step inside a domestic setting, defined by bold primary colours, experience this space simplified yet surrounded by familiar objects. Finally visit a setting dominated by a mountain and a leafy forest path that draws you into an imagined landscape.

Inhabit will include works by Edward Bawden, Dennis Creffield, Gertrude Hermes, Phelan Gibb, Duncan Grant, Derrick Greaves, Roland Jarvis, Robert MacBryde, Harold Mockford and Monica Poole. As well as contemporary artists Peter Liversidge, Tania Kovats, Zoe Walker and Graham Gussin.

This display will also showcase new acquisitions to the Towner Collection, a selection of prints by Patrick Caulfield and paintings by Wilfred Avery.
