Through A Glass Darkly

An Exhibition of Paintings by Pippa Young

Arusha Gallery, 13a Dundas Street, Edinburgh
Running from October 13 – November 5
Private View October 12 from 6 – 8pm

This body of work is about representation, identity, and visual language.

Pippa Young: “I am interested in surface and illusion both in a psychological sense and in a painterly sense. To me, the act of painting is a microcosm of a wider experience.”

The phrase,’through a glass darkly’, is biblical, from Corinthians, and first appeared in the King James translation. Modern translations use the word ‘mirror’. In the original version the writer was probably referring to a piece of highly polished bronze which provided a reflective surface.
