warmly still is a group exhibition centred around memory and presence in absence. Like a body-shaped indentation in the bed, the blurred smiles in an old photo, a pebble radiating the sun’s kiss into the night. The exhibition creates an evocative and nostalgic experience through the works of four contemporary artists.

With soft hues and incomplete figures, the selected artworks combine an initial feeling of comfort with an unsettling sense of absence. Leaving the viewer wondering what is left unsaid and giving them the freedom to complete the picture with their own memories and stories.

The exhibition also explores how mundane settings can acquire both a timelessness and a surreal quality when details or subjects are abducted from them. warmly still provides a visual anchor for intangible echoes of strangely familiar sights and dreams.
