Beth Pope -Golden Moments
27th April - 30th April 2015, The Longwall and Barside Space
This exhibition of sky paintings is about moments of awareness and joy. Working from photographs and memory I have painted skies that have made me stop and remember what is important and my connection to life. I have often represented negative thinking with darkness and awareness as light, so the sky seemed perfect to represent these golden moments we experience. It also is ever changing, highlighting the importance of enjoying the present. Making paintings gives me more time that I can be without thought. Time to be totally immersed. Hopefully these works will remind others to do the same and make the most of those golden moments of happiness and peace.
