Kate Gritton – SOUNDINGS. In Search of my Father’s War

Exhibition ran from 29 May 2018 – 24 Jun 2018
Private View 1 Jun, 6.30 - 8.30pm 

Kate Gritton’s exhibition began as a wish to document her father’s time in North Africa and Italy during WWII. Over the course of a year’s work however, the paintings that emerged became something other than documentary. Conflicting images of wounded flesh and tranquil landscapes, a sense of distance and very close reality reflect the emotional journey on which she embarked over a year  ago. The result is something both personal and universal.
