Local artist and NSA member Hils Tranter returns to Daisy Laing Gallery for her first solo exhibition, two years since a successful collaborative show ‘PLAY’ with 14 creative friends. Connections is about feeling grounded, connecting with something outside yourself, yet inside yourself. Seeing connections with past work or life. Gaining understanding and clarity. This exhibition includes drawing, painting, collage and artists books, using mixed media.
“My art reflects my life and all its peaks and troughs. It can seem disparate as it jumps about from different media and subject, yet there are threads and themes that run throughout. There’s usually a feeling or a moment I’m trying to find or capture, though sometimes it feels like clutching at smoke.”
