Let me show you what I mean
Wilder gallery is delighted to present 'Let Me Show You What I Mean' a new body of vibrant and colourful paintings by Beth Rodway coming soon. Please register your interest for a preview of works. Many thanks!
Have you ever longed to sit inside a painting?
Beth Rodway’s new body of work, exhibited so strikingly in her brand new, online exhibition, ‘Let me show you what I mean’ with Wilder Gallery, London, is equal parts detail and dream.
Rodway’s works have consistently focussed on telling stories. The artist creates sets for the imagination - designs spaces and homes for us to fill. Her background in architecture from the University of Brighton, provides an immensely beautiful perspective. They are structurally sound, yet unexpected and elusive.
The influence of her recent three-month residency in Los Angeles is clear. Rodway realises pink palm tree-filled skies of LA, replacing the pale grey skies of London. Indeed, many of these homes depicted can be found in Los Angeles. A drastic step from Rodway’s iconic monochrome blue, these works bustle with buttery pastels, pinks and purples. Unmistakably modern interiors are rendered both fanciful and impeccably designed.
Beth Rodway enjoys playing with juxtapositions: the disparity between the architectural and the human-made is referenced with the untamed nature inside and out. The supple, curved lines contrasted with the modernist lines of the architecture. Giant panes of glass are framed with bold, climbing plants, and wild trees penetrate the skies. Paintings here are remembered and imagined.
Through this brand new body of work, we are blessed to view the world from Rodway’s unique play on perspective.
