About Fresh Thoughts. Exhibition by Toni Harrower

Toni Harrower graduated from Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen in 2016 and is a practicing artist in Scotland.

Her paintings follow a ‘system’ and a set of restraints that determine colour, composition and scale. Working from a colour-coded alphabet, the titles for each painting are extremely important as a starting point. From here each piece follows a basic set of rules - working from left to right, top to bottom.

Harrower explores the physicality of paint in line with her interest in dementia and the unforeseen in life.

Working in a repetitious manner, she creates individual patterns and repeated geometric shapes that form a grid-like cell structure. This approach provides a level of control over the paint, which is otherwise unrestricted. Harrower builds up layers to express the passing of time. As the paint gains depth and weight, gravity and a lack of control come into play, causing the paint to fall away, merging cells into one another. This push/pull process Harrower relates to the uncontrollable events that occur in life, implying the notion of the mind – and the human existence - falling apart.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Fresh Thoughts. Exhibition by Toni Harrower are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
