For her second solo exhibition at Huxley-Parlour Gallery, British artist Eileen Cooper will present 15 new works on canvas for her exhibition Somewhere or Other.

While encompassing enduring themes of sexuality, creativity, fertility and relationships, the works in Somewhere or Other recognise a darker side of Ms Cooper’s remit by considering desire and isolation, mortality and conflict.

Exhibits from Somewhere or Other

Painted over the past two years, this latest body of work continues Ms Cooper’s interest in autobiographically inflected narrative.

With characteristically bold, lyrical and emphatic line, the works in the show are influenced by the landscape, folklore and the timeless atmosphere of the Suffolk coast and countryside, while drawing particularly on its reputation as archaeologically fertile.

Exhibits from Somewhere or Other

In Somewhere or Other, paintings suggest ancient habitats, vanished communities, the romance and threat of the North Sea and the timeless rituals of civilisations, both distant and present.

The title of this body of work – from Christina Rossetti’s poem, Somewhere or Other – is fitting for a series which delights in cryptic figures, symbol and allegory.

The exhibition is at 3-5 Swallow Street, W1B 4DE from June 22 to July 16.
