Alan Ibell: A Place to Put Ghosts

March 21 - April 11

Alan Ibell, House at Dawn, 2020, Acrylic on canvas, 98.5 x 131 cm. Courtesy: the artist and Jhana Millers Gallery, Wellington.

Jhana Millers Gallery presents work by Alan Ibell.

Ibell’s painting practice explores narrative and figuration alongside the uncanny and the Antipodean gothic.

In A Place to Put the Ghosts, Ibell experiments with new colours and forms, while returning to familiar themes and images — the house, the figure, the landscape. By resurfacing these motifs, as from the depths of memory, he gestures towards a type of ghost, that of the past self, half-forgotten but never fully erased. With these works Ibell encourages us to consider the nature of our own self-reinventions and place-building. Are we ever in control of where we put our own ghosts?

Exhibition opens: 1–3pm Saturday 21 March 2020
