Robert Platt, Phantom Prospect, 2007, diptych, 162 x 261 cm
18 April - 17 May 2008
Pippy Houldsworth is proud to present to press Robert Platt's first UK solo show. A Royal College of Art alumni, Platt adopts the medium of painting to explore a series of dichotomies whereby nature and artifice stand opposed. In Huntorama he explores a lost Eden in a time when nature has become increasingly mediated and domesticated. This wistful yearning for a reconnection with both nature and its wilderness is personified for Platt in activities such as hunting and Huntorama stages a rich mix of Japanese landscape imbued with a very British sensibility.
Press are invited to book appointments to visit the gallery to view a sample of those to be included in Huntorama prior to the official opening on Friday 18th April. Further information concerning Robert Platt's work and practice is contained in the pdf-File 1,25 MB.
Pippy Houldsworth Gallery will be participating in PULSE Art Fair, New York from 27-30 March.
