Lisa Traxler: Time Traveller
2 July – 8 October 2022
In 2020 Lisa Traxler was awarded first place in Southampton City Art Gallery’s Open Exhibition with her sculpture, ‘Time Traveller – Voyager’ which was inspired by a painting from Southampton’s Maritime and Local History Collection ‘Approach to the New World (Olympic)’ by artist Norman Wilkinson.
Taking her winning entry as a reference point, history and architecture collide in this exhibition to create an immersive landscape within the gallery setting.
Alongside dazzle artworks the artist has created a new series of sculptures transforming and dissecting previous works.
Artist talk and tour: Saturday 10 September 2022, 2pm and 3.30pm
A limited edition mini boxed sculpture has been made especially for this exhibition and available in the gallery shop alongside other works and exhibition catalogue
About the artworks:
‘Coruscating colour, dynamic line and elegant form – on first appearances this exciting body of new work by Lisa Traxler might appear to be a joyful exploration of abstract geometry. Yet on closer scrutiny and with patient exploration Traxler offers us a far deeper visual experience. One that is intimately connected to both our past and our present, to architecture, textiles, camouflage, letters and loss. Time Traveller is unique in its visual approach and offers an extraordinarily rich and multi-layered expression of our times.’
