FUTURES presents an exhibition by Sarah Drinan entitled Flesh Boundaries, her first solo outing with the gallery. Consisting of darkly bucolic dreamscapes, Drinan’s paintings feature naked forms that contort and glow with fleshy transparency, underpinned by the vast history of figuration.
Flesh is a paradox – a site of connection yet a reminder of impermanence and isolation. As such, Drinan pushes her figures to the edge of their singularity; they flirt with dissolution while remaining resolutely whole. Sometimes they connect or intertwine, and other times they become distorted and isolated, in a state of tension. Devoid of features, her subjects are reduced to a blurred physicality, perhaps hinting at a body that is sensation and transcendence itself.
Opening Event: Saturday 7 October, 4 – 6pm.
