Introducing Naomi Doran - Included in 'Surface Tension' Our Upcoming Group Exhibition

Naomi Doran is a North London based artist who challenges the limitations of the two-dimensional either by puncturing the surfaces of her works to reveal a seemingly infinite void beyond, or by incorporating sculptural elements that project outwards into space. Like Giulia Ricci's work (also in the shop) her pieces aim to establish a certain sense of equilibrium or harmony between the man-made and the natural, the artifical and the organic. In her reliefs, concrete, iron and streel are not employed to create a gleaming vision of the future; rather, they highlight the processes of decay and erosionm rusting and cracking. Her exploration of these materials make us consider their place in the landscape anew; in doing so, our industrial heritage is revealed not as a blight on the landscape, but rather an intrinsic part of it - and one that now contains its own elegiac, poetic beauty.
