Kathryn Maple in Group Exhibition by The Violet Hour

Kathryn Maple is in an upcoming group exhibition presented by The Violet Hour.

Strand Gallery
32 John Adam Street, London, WC2N 6BP

26 - 31 May 2015
Private View Wednesday 27 May 6 - 8 pm

'The Violet Hour has taken inspiration from London’s Adelphi quarter for their forthcoming exhibition of five emerging contemporary artists. The title ‘Islands of the Blest’ is an excerpt from Lord Byron’s ‘The Isles of Greece’ and plays with the idea of permanence and transition.

Observations of the odd and out of place in Kathryn Maple’s layered works seem to grow from the paper. Again, the surfaces change in rhythm, with areas of clear translucency and worked, near-woven pockets. Having completed the postgraduate programme at the Royal Drawing School in September 2013, Kathryn embarked on an associated work placement and residency in India. In 2014 she was the winner of the Sunday Times watercolour prize. '
