Leah Bartholomew’s second solo exhibition These are the Days, at Gorker Gallery, 17 – 27 June.
Following the success of her debut solo exhibition Where the Dry Leaves Fall, Leah Bartholomew is set to impress us all with her new body of work.
These are the Days is an intimate exploration of the small, special moment that bind us together in friendship and create a sense of place. The prints, collages and paper sculptures delicately handcrafted by Bartholomew tell the story of a protracted coming of age, anchored in the landscapes of both experience and imagination.
From poetics scenes such as the group of friends lazing in a sun-drenched field, to the bonding of the shared beer in city back streets, to the quiet moment of solitude amongst prismatic trees, these works honour the events and emotions that can seem almost insignificant at the time, but go on to become important memories and dreams. They convey a similar feeling to that of discovering the smell of bonfire on a pair of jeans that you haven’t worn for weeks.
