Hannah Murgatroyd @ Exeter Phoenix Gallery
19 July 2017 - 2 September 2017
Hannah Murgatroyd’s works can be seen as island spaces of the imagination; painted and drawn worlds inhabited by protagonists who spring from a history of the body, as told through high art, popular culture and personal narrative. Her images often explore a moment of desire; one that is owned equally by men and women. Any narrative they suggest exists by association and their encounters are passages marked by gesture: in the drawn and painted surface and in their bodily pose and dress; how they glance, perhaps, or raise a finger in relationship to one another; the specific heel of a boot or weft of a sweater.
