Shelly Tregoning I Arusha Gallery

13A Dundas Street,

Arusha gallery presents the first solo show by Shelly Tregoning. The exhibition consists of two distinct types of work:

Large scale with spacious compositions, emotive colour and exquisite economy of line define this new collection of oil on linen paintings, which explore and express ideas of dichotomy between our exterior and interior self. Presented as a series of compelling ‘non-portraits’, Tregoning’s work seeks to contrast the physicality of human form with the fragilities that are revealed in the details of human gesture. Through fine draughtsmanship and the skilled study of movement, the artist establishes an intimacy between subject and viewer, in which fleeting, unguarded moments of distraction, introspection and vulnerability reveal the psychological complexities beneath our conscious presentations of personal identity.


Thursday, November 9th from 6-8pm.
