'Breach' a new solo show by alumnus Celia Hempton at Galleria Lorcan O'Neill Roma

‘Breach’ a new solo show by alumnus Celia Hempton (Sainsbury Scholar in Painting and Sculpture 2008-10) at Galleria Lorcan O’Neill Roma.

“The young British painter Celia Hempton presents two groups of new paintings in her second show at the gallery: landscapes made at the summit of the active Sicilian volcano of Stromboli; and paintings made from live video streams of hacked surveillance cameras around the world.

“My engagement in painting via the internet has parallels in an interest in landscape painting. Online space can be explored like a physical territory, exposing uncensored and extreme aspects of nature, as well as the banal, slow and uneventful”. — PRESS RELEASE


The show opened on the 20 February and runs until April.
