“With the low light of the setting sun, the dusty aquifers no longer in use, and a breeze, rife with particles moving quietly over a landscape of history, springs a moon and a sun complimenting each other’s glow in a manufactured space that describes nature in all its complications- its slow and fast deterioration; its ability to nurture one and strip another of comforts; and our complicity in these moments.” Scott Everingham

“Inward Field,” Scott Everingham’s latest exhibition of paintings, is a sublime exploration of the inner landscapes of the human spirit. Through a masterful interplay of colour, form, and texture, Everingham invites viewers on a contemplative journey into the depths of their own consciousness. The title itself suggests a focus on introspection and self-discovery, as if each canvas is a portal to an intimate realm of personal reflection.

The works in this exhibition exude a profound sense of stillness and serenity, creating an atmosphere of quietude within the gallery space. Everingham’s adept use of brushwork and palette imbues the paintings with a palpable sense of energy, as if the colours themselves breathe and pulse.

Themes of solitude and inner dialogue permeate the collection, offering a space for viewers to commune with their own thoughts and emotions. The artist’s ability to balance abstraction and realism lends a transcendent quality to the pieces, blurring the boundaries between the tangible and the ineffable.
