Hannah Luxton, Joe Packer & Fiona G Roberts - One World
"Perhaps. I’m reminded of TS Eliot in the Four Quartets: ‘What might have been is an abstraction / Remaining a perpetual possibility / Only in a world of speculation.
How should we enter the worlds of these three painters? Or should that be ‘the world’, for between them they seem to cohere into one. Joe Packer deals with the earth – abstracting from the natural landscape while retaining a strong sense of its subterranean substance; Fiona Roberts gives us the people who inhabit Earth and collectively determine, if not its fate, then their species’ fate; and Hannah Luxton finds her subjects in remote observations – mountain tops are as close as she gets - in work which reminds us that there is more to our world, materially and spiritually, than the Earth."
