Solomon Fine Art is delighted to host an exhibition of new work by award winning artist Cléa van der Grijn. The disembodied adventures of Cléa is a series of new paintings inspired by Lewis Carroll’s novel Alice in Wonderland. Van der Grijn utilises imagery from the iconic book, along with it’s themes of displacement and transformation to navigate her own experiences with personality disorder, addiction and the path towards recovery.
These new works demonstrate the artist’s process orientated philosophy, whereby compositions are formed in an uncoordinated and impulsive manner. Often deconstructed and reformed, the paintings deliberately reveal traces of their history, whereby the nature of their materiality is brought to the foreground.
