Solomon is delighted to host its first solo exhibition of work by artist Michael Wann. In Void Pastoral Wann presents us with a new collection of charcoal landscape drawings where the themes of boundary and perimeter are central.
In this exhibition we see Wann use landscape as a metaphor and drawing as a vehicle for an underlying augury of environmental anxiety. Through an emotive resonance of light and shade, the mostly unpopulated 'everyday' rural settings in Wann’s compositions are charged with unease and a disquiet of perspective. Temporal moments of weather speak of memory and place, of pictorial space, and the mapping of terrain.
