Light Duty

Rachael Robb

22 May–15 Jun 2024

Light Duty represents a personal scrying through fragments and objects— some carried through life and others unexpectedly triggering past memories. Centering on the interplay of the mundane and the sublime, these paintings explore déjà vu and the non-linear nature of time, seeking visual stillness and a space for symbolism in which the real and everyday intersect with the emotional, memorial, or otherworldly, layering past, present, and future.


Whilst personal, the subjects of these paintings give rise to universal connections and understanding, leaving them open to interpretation. Small scale with smooth surfaces, and drawing upon Northern European old masters, these works are technically reminiscent of Flemish altarpieces. Not concerned with creating a realistic representation of space, but rather with capturing the essence of interiority— a place outside of time.
