HESTER FINCH – Alone in Berlin, Jessica Carlisle, 83 Kinnerton Street, London SW1X 8ED
In this new, strong body of work Hester Finch captures her exploration of the psychological potential in painting with skill and verve.
There are three groups of pictures: The Accused, a series of miniature-like images that invite judgement and empathy. The Atrocities, landscapes which on deeper inspection reveal elements that raise questions. Are we seeing something peaceful or is there more to the story? Is it a seemingly tranquil landscape or a war ravaged terrain for example? The final group of works is The Hospice, where sheets and cloths are seen in an enigmatic, contorted fashion that suggests memento mori and loss.
