Fred Sorrell - Ember

Parafin presents Fred Sorrell, his second at the gallery. Alongside new paintings and works on paper the exhibition will include Sorrell’s first large-scale wall painting.

Sorrell’s work constitutes an open-ended enquiry into the nature of perception. His position is that an abstract painting can be autonomous – an image that exists in purely visual terms – but that it can also communicate something of its inspiration.

As in Sorrell’s first show at the gallery many of the new paintings are rooted in the experience of landscape, light and nature, as suggested by titles such as Coast (2022), Orchard (2022) and Moorland (2022). However, Sorrell’s recent work also inevitably reflects upon the experiences of the last two years, a time of enforced seclusion and resulting interiority.
