From 7 – 9 pm - Artist in attendance
For her second exhibition at Peter Robertson Galley, Monica Tap explores the connections between time, history and landscape. Her Springtime/Armida paintings investigate the heavily- artifacted video image while alluding to the colour palette of the 17th century Venetian artist Tiepolo. Her predominantly black and white Paseo paintings record a brief moment from her 800 kilometre trek along the Camino Frances in Spain. Stark tonal contrasts capture sharp Spanish light in an effect that brings to mind engravings from the old masters, while deep tangles of undergrowth intimate at some of the darker history of these woods.
