Light Dreams features the work of two London-based artists, Neda Dana-Haeri and Virginia Waterhouse, who both use watercolour to create abstract evocations of light, cultural memory and the sublime.
In her stark, deceptively simple paintings, Neda Dana-Haeri is inspired by Persian poetry and Sufi philosophy, exploring concepts of cultural memory.
London-born artist Virginia Waterhouse finds much of her inspiration in music and poetry. For the past year she has been exploring Paradise Lost, developing an abstract language through which to convey the vivid drama and the unknowable sublime of Milton’s vision. She works mainly in inks and watercolour, creating richly coloured and multi-layered images.
Light Dreams is at AandD Gallery, 51, Chiltern Street, WIU 6LY from June 29th to July 3rd. 20100. Opening hours 10.30am – 7.00pm.
