Expansive, blue-tinted landscapes appear profoundly empty or otherwise, occupied by faceless figures and fractured images that slide across the canvas, their colours and edges fading into one another. These are the paintings of Christiane Pooley whose practice explores place as both a physical environment and an emotional state that transcends time and geographical boundaries. For her first solo exhibition at Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, the Chilean artist presents a breathtaking new body of work, entitled The Need for Roots, that quietly contemplates the complexities of origin and belonging.
