ALISON WATT - Abbot Hall

Alison Watt: A Shadow On The Blind 

Abbot Hall Art Gallery, Kendal, UK

12 October 2018 - 2 February, 2019


Alison Watt's exhibition, A Shadow On The Blind, will include major new paintings representing a significant new development in Watt's practice as well as a selection of key earlier works. Many works are being exhibited for the first time.


Watt is widely regarded as one of the UK's leading painters. Her exquisitely painted canvasses negotiate a position close to abstraction yet are firmly rooted in the artist's studies of drapery, light, human form and Old Master paintings and sculpture. Through absence, her work suggests a powerful human presence.

Visitors can get added insight into Watt and her work when she gives a talk on 23 October. To book tickets, please follow the link below.
