LETTING IN THE LIGHT

Solo Show  //  Boom Gallery

 

December 5th - 23rd // Opens Saturday 7th Dec, 1-3pm

Boom Gallery, 11 Rutland Street, Newtown, VIC 3220

The importance of our personal connection to a landscape is often overlooked, but landscapes - and more specifically, the light that surrounds these places - can elicit powerful emotional responses. Letting in the Light by Sarah Kelk explores this idea with a raw and brutal energy.  

 

We all interpret landscapes differently based on experience, intuition and connectedness, and this influences how and why we are drawn to certain places. Some days, the landscapes surrounding us evoke a feeling of sadness, yearning or emptiness. On other days, all we feel is beauty and hope. It is this unpredictable and ever-changing train of thought that ties us to the natural environment where cycles begin and end in constant rotation. 

 

These works reflect Kelk’s connection to the world around her; her emotional response to landscapes significant to her; and the role that light plays in her life, through colour and tone.

 

There is a lack of wide views in the works, which creates a sense of emptiness. This is contrasted by dense layers and detailed blocks of colour, communicating a definite liveliness and energy. And while there are no obvious landscapes depicted in each painting, a sense of familiarity and nostalgia somehow emerges from the shapes that fold into, and over, each other.

 

While we all hold our own personal experiences tied to ‘place’, a single landscape has the beautiful power of meaning more than one thing, to many different people. These experiences can be open and shared, or kept immensely private for moments of solitary reflection and light.
