Barbara Hoogeweegen’s new works

barbara 2Local artist Barbara Hoogeweegen (Prideaux) has produced a set of new works which continues her series of shows exploring relationships and disconnection between people. Hoogeweegen’s last show was called Face which she says is: “About how people represent themselves on Facebook and the idea that people are reaching out from a place of isolation to connect with people.” Another show was called ‘Eye Am’, a collection of portraits from stills to illustrate the range of emotions that exist between people and this latest set of paintings is called Inevitable, about children leaving home. It is partly autobiographical as her own daughter is about to leave home and all the images are of  local mothers with one of their children fading into the background.  Hoogeweegen says: “It’s about time passing, nostalgia and childhood.”  She has used old broken up frames to add to that sense of time and history. They are brilliant. Rebecca Hossack Gallery, 7th-25th May. www.rebeccahossack and www.bhoogeweegen
