The ever-popular artist Philomena Harmsworth returns with a Christmas Exhibition, Kith and Kin, at the New Steine hotel.

Philomena’s journey exploring form and space now includes the fourth dimension – time; travelling from the contours of the human figure to animated beings in full motion.

The paintings echo that atmospheric time when people gather. The speed of painting is key; movement capturing fleeting moments of meeting. In contrast, buildings are grounded by vertical and horizontal marks. Darkened interiors leave us with the magic of the unanswered question, wanting to know more.

The perfect Christmas present, Philomena’s work is a rare, must-see treat.

Opening hours: 11.00 – 21.00
