Past, Present, Imperfection, a solo exhibition of new works by Sally Hirst, who is widely known for her images of the urban environment and industrial architecture. She has spent the past year immersing herself in the architectural and industrial history of Norwich and creating this series of painting, prints and collages as a response to her research. The work reflects the texture, architecture, signage and structures of our fine city. Her sensitive depictions fall between abstraction and realism and invite you to question what still exists and what has gone before; Buildings you will recognise are depicted alongside those that now only exist in old photographs. Through the layers of information and meaning, transparency and opacity, ambiguity and nuance these images aim to inform and enrich your understanding of our fine city. We are thrilled to have Sally’s paintings on display as part of our ongoing exhibition series at the Theatre Royal Norwich. Exhibition ends Monday 2nd October 2017.
This space hosts a stimulating programme of exhibitions by East Anglian artists kindly sponsored by Targetfollow Estates Ltd. in collaboration with the Theatre Royal. The exhibitions change every 3 months and create a unique opportunity for local professional artists to display and sell their work in a well used and well loved public space.
When the Theatre was refurbished in 2007 Targetfollow paid for a flexible hanging system to be installed on the walls around the Adnams Bar, since then Targetfollow has supported the changing exhibition series which has featured work by local artists including Colin Self, John Kiki, Martin Laurence, Emrys Parry, Bruer Tidman, Mary Mellor, Fiona Roberts, Cornelia FitzRoy, Norwich 20 Group and many more.
