Ann Gollifer - A Sum of Days

Tue-Sat: 11-6pm

Ed Cross is delighted to present A Sum of Days, a solo exhibition by British-Guyanese artist Ann Gollifer.

A Sum of Days comprises 23 watercolour paintings produced in 2022, as lockdowns lifted around the world and relationships to domestic and public spaces were being widely reappraised. Made on leaves of vintage watercolour paper that were originally bound together in book form, the pages offered Gollifer an ideal ground for exploring her environment and its unique materiality - specifically, Botswana ochres and the relationships between their colour ranges and textures.

In the artist's words, "The use of Botswana earth helps to embed me in the landscapes I create in paint, and gives me a sense of belonging in a place in which I have been self transplanted. The Frangipani is indigenous to South America not Africa but we have both flourished here, in this garden."
