Some Kind of Melancholy

Lauren Hewitt

2 Aug 2013 to 11 Aug 2013

Lauren Hewitt’s new exhibition Some kind of Melancholy is both breathtaking and personal. She contrasts large scale, isolating landscapes with the homey and personal hand stitching. The combination of majesty and domesticity is both compelling and striking. Hewitt has long been enraptured by the beauty and mystique of the mountains. A self-described ‘armchair adventurer’ Hewitt showcases not just the beauty of mountainous landscapes but a profound sense of isolation and melancholy. Rather than the freedom of space, they map the topography of sadness.
