Lismore Castle Arts is presented a solo exhibition by Natasha Pike, recipient of our 2020 graduate award.
Moving to an online award for 2020, the exhibition presents a new body of work by Natasha Pike, graduate of the 2019 Crawford College of Art MA Programme.
Natasha Pike’s paintings and sculptures blur the boundaries of each other – paintings sweep off the wall, almost eager to reach the sculpture on the floor below, canvasses are often unstretched, their torn edges keeping their own physical boundaries in flux. The sculptures are different shapes, some strict rectangular shapes, others rough acorn like shapes, cut clinically in half, colours soft as sherbet reflected in the minimal tones of the paintings above. It is a conversation between themselves, so successfully here it is as if the artist is no longer in charge, and the works arenow leading a private interplay.
