Secret Histories, Excavations in Paint
Whistleblower Gallery 
Oct. 22 - Nov. 18
Brighton, UK


‘There’s something uncanny about these paintings. I can’t quite explain it. Maybe I don’t need to. It sometimes feels like they have been a response to the enormity of events unfolding around us of late. A sense in the figures and settings that have been emerging, as if being excavated from the paint. A sense of the cyclical nature of things. It feels like I’m unearthing these figures and their stories and giving them a world to live in, a sky to congregate under – allowing them to exist – they are a mystery, even to me.’

Sarah Shaw, October 2021
