About Inner Space

A group exhibition by Dawn Beckles, Kate Montgomery, Lindsey Moran, Adam Stone and Alison Pullen at Sarah Wiseman Gallery.

Inner Space is a group exhibition of artists exploring a variety of interior spaces that are domestic, more opulent or imaginary.

With our domestic lives taking so much more precedence in the last two years, our thoughts have come to focus on the importance of our most intimate surroundings.

Gallery director Sarah Wiseman says, ‘‘The word ‘home’ or interior carries so many meanings. The exhibition features artists investigating interior space using a variety of media addressing a range of themes.”

Visitors can expect to see vibrant paintings by the acclaimed young artist Dawn Beckles, whose contemporary interpretations of classic still life incorporate reoccurring subject matter inspired by her native Barbados.

The Brighton-based artist Kate Montgomery will also be showing new works inspired by the interior worlds of women, inspired by her early childhood.

Lindsey Moran explores the decadent light and space of palm houses, while Adam Stone investigates the compelling nature of abandoned or disused urban spaces.

Finally, gallery artist Alison Pullen presents her beautifully observed paintings of both domestic and public spaces, using a mixture of collage and drawing in situ.

“This exhibition explores what it means to be in our own space, whether that’s our homes or some other place, perhaps in our dreams,” adds Sarah.

Sarah Wiseman Gallery will be preparing a fully illustrated e-catalogue featuring texts about each artist and all available works. Admission is free. All works on display are for sale and are also available for purchase online.
