PRESS RELEASE

Liminal Gallery is delighted to announce its upcoming exhibition, ‘Walking in Limestone Country’ the first solo exhibition of Lancashire-based artist Abigail Hampsey. Having returned to the land of her youth on the edge of the greenbelt between Lancaster, the Lake District and West Yorkshire, this new body of work is an exploration of landscape, a retrieval of place and a recording of the relationships formed within them. 

 

With a sense of homecoming, Hampsey's brushstrokes become a conduit for the deep-rooted connections she holds with these terrains. "Walking in limestone country" serves as both an ode to landscape and an exploration of personal history. Through an interplay of colours and textures, Hampsey channels her intricate relationship with her surroundings, bringing together notions of memory, nostalgia, and discovery.

Her canvases resonate with the echoes of childhood tales and folklore, now tinged with the sobering realisation of environmental fragility and societal change. What once sparkled with youthful wonder is now imbued with a bittersweet patina of loss and reflection. As a metaphor for the transition from childhood to adulthood, memory to the present, "Walking in Limestone Country" utilises the landscape as a powerful symbol.
