Throughout the exhibition, the diasporic condition presents itself in her paintings as an unfolding allegoric commentary. The works become a contemplation of transience, a theatre in which human instinct compassionately addresses ideas of settlement, a reaction to one’s, or anothers, transient restlessness and displacement and a complex dispersion of un-at-homeness and groundlessness.

Harper’s often large-scale paintings, underpinned by intense drawing, demonstrate a mode of reconstructing visual appearances; events, beliefs, dreams, memory and mediated imagery, whereby seamless, sometimes fictional fragmentations are rearranged and presented as plausible happenings. The motives of her works are intended to be contradictory, at once both particular and general, restrained and ornate, whole and fragmented, detectable and imperceptible, relatable and distant, reflecting the complex duality of the human condition.

Open Monday - Saturday, 10 am - 5pm. Until 6 April 2019.

"This is a welcome first solo show for a promising young painter." - Jackie Wullschläger, FT Weekend
