Balancing on the horizon
Manning Regional Gallery 23rd March - 13th May 2023
"Balancing on the horizon" delves into the unknown disquiet of climate change with playful and contemplative paintings by Alex Thorby.
Working en plein air and later in the studio, Thorby reconsiders a leisurely hot summers day at the beach, sunbaking, surfing and gazing out to the horizon.
Figurative paintings and sculptural installations explore the tumultuous emotions of joy and loss at a time when balance has multiple meanings and future horizons remain unknown.
Thorby calls on the power of each of us to reconsider our collective strength to recharge our relationship with nature.
