Kilmorack Gallery is delighted to bring together the work of Helen Denerley and Peter White in this exhibition. ‘Hollow’ explores a powerful hinterland – the land of empty bits and hollows. A place where absences are frequently more powerful than presences.
Helen Denerley and Peter White are hugely respected artists with past shows throughout the UK and beyond. This is a collaboration which Denerley and White have wanted to stage for many years, almost since I established Kilmorack gallery twenty years ago. It is a long-awaited single vision, in two distinct mediums, from two uniquely honed pairs of artistic eyes. Both artists have a shared aspiration to see into voids, and to take us to a place where everyday things have a life beyond the apparent. A world beyond the object is opened up to us, momentarily, through their work.
