Antonia Showering: Mixed Emotion

26 Jan-5 Mar 2022


Timothy Taylor is delighted to present a new exhibition of paintings by Antonia Showering (b. 1991, London, UK). This is the gallery’s first solo exhibition with the artist. In Showering’s work, vivid and velvety colour is drawn like a veil over atmospheric evocations of the workings of memory and emotional experience. The compositions are filled with figures Showering calls ‘the people I love or have loved.’ Narrative flickers obliquely at the edges of her paintings, the ghosts of storylines taking shape in the form of ambiguous familial relationships or romantic encounters dotted with surreal souvenirs, creating a persistent sense of déjà-vu, the way we experience the past and present all at once.
