Blue Lotus – an exhibition by Rod Kitson
Escaping lockdown with myth and imagination
Rod Kitson is set to unveil an exhibition of ‘escapist’ paintings that he began as a reaction to his life in lockdown.
The brightly coloured works explore mythology, symbolism and delve into memory, with animals and half-human creatures taking centre stage.
The exhibition is made up of 30 paintings, many of them outsize. The non-realistic style marks a departure from Kitson’s representational painting to a more imaginative approach.
Oct 28-Nov 7, The Art of Isolation, Surrey Quays
Private View: 5-7pm Thurs Oct 28
