Pyx Sutherland: New Works from Italy
For nearly fifty years Pyx Sutherland has been paying homage to the land in her paintings and drawings. Very much a global citizen, Sutherland cares deeply about current events and her artwork reads– at times – as warnings of environmental degradation, and often as refined meditations on the effects of time and humanity on the landscape.
As a direct result of a breakthrough achieved during an intense residency with a master printmaker in Spain this summer, Sutherland's drawings have shifted to an alternate interpretation of physical space and time.
The drawings are images of the facts of landscape – movement, stillness, flux.
They are simultaneously modern and long-established.
