Hempel Galleries presents ‘Shaping Texture’ by Sue Harrigan

Sue’s love of natural form and texture is revealed in her interpretation of the human form, pattern and texture, which she will be presenting for the first time in Sri Lanka.

“The ancient olive trees in the surrounding area of my home in northern Tuscany embody this. I see the twisted trunks resembling pleated silk skirts; knurled deformities as billowing fabric and the intertwined boughs soaring their way to heaven, as female bodies frozen in time. The rhythm of nature beats at the heart of my work.” – Sue Harrigan.

Sue grew up in the U.K. and now splits her time between Tuscany, the U.K. and Sri Lanka.

“I have lived in Sri Lanka too: revelling in the colour and vibrancy of daily life and nature; the form of the Bodhi trees inspiring my work, is an accretion of my perceptions and observations.” – Sue Harrigan.

This Exhibition will continue for the duration of the Festival.
