MIRRORS – by Pip Dickens - A solo exhibition of new paintings exploring the self through mirrors.

The Storey - in the Gallery
14 – 24 November 2017
Admission Free
Monday – Saturday, 10.00 am-4.30 pm. Closed Sunday

This new exhibition of paintings by British artist, Pip Dickens, explores the phenomenon of mirrors and how we might see ourselves reflected in them. She examines the mirror as a magic device - a portal through which, like Alice and her Looking Glass, we might climb through to explore worlds both familiar and unfamiliar.

These images are not always in harmony with their surroundings - some are whimsical, some seem dark or disturbing but most attempt to question through animation of the inanimate to what deg
ree we use masks of our own making to deflect others from seeing our true selves.

What are these figures? Where are they? And why do they challenge our gaze? Some seem lost in their dream world on the other side of the glass.

Cinema’s ‘Master of Suspense’, Alfred Hitchcock remarked: “There’s no such thing as a face—it’s non-existent until the light hits it.” We may say the same about our relationship with mirrors and also the phenomenon of the Selfie. Dickens explores the enigma of self-scrutiny, reflection and mirrors in a manner which is both playful and confrontational.

‘MIRRORS – Pip Dickens’ is funded by
Arts Council England, using money from the The National Lottery and Lancaster University.
