Pip Ryan‘s exhibition of her new works on paper reveals the innate contradictions and juxtapositions within everyday life through depictions of tragic and comical beasts. Drawing from Ryan’s experience of the lockdown period of 2020, The Devil’s Cloak eloquently expresses the simultaneous acceleration and slowing of time that occurred within the microcosm that was her home. A timely exhibition that slowly seduces, Ryan draws the viewer deep to space in between. Ryan explores the dichotomy between humour and horror, as familiar objects begin to mutate. The absurd and darkly comical creatures drawn in this exhibition became Ryan’s confidants, helping her process the challenges and anxieties of 2020.
