Penny McCarthy @ Hastings Contemporary

8 October 2022 - 12 March 2023

Cloud falls in love with mortal is an exhibition by Penny McCarthy and comprises an extensive series of graphite drawings made between 2019 and 2022.

The catalyst for these drawings was a newspaper image from 2016 of a Fata Morgana mirage in the sky above Hastings that looked like a portal to another world. Each drawing in the series is associatively linked to the enigmatic Fata Morgana mirage, in which the sea appears in the sky and the world is turned upside down. Penny McCarthy uses pencil drawing with an exacting slowness that is a kind of reverie or extended contemplation.
