Katie Tomlinson - At Least Buy Me Dinner First

Wed-Fri: 12-6pm; Sat: 11-5pm

Brooke Benington presents At Least Buy Me Dinner First, a solo exhibition by Katie Tomlinson that brings together a collection of new paintings exploring power and consent within our intimate relationships. Presented through a heat-haze of memory, sun-saturated seaside summers and adolescent indiscretions, these paintings depict moments of sexual, physical, and emotional intimacy shared with lovers, friends, family and strangers.

Woven through Tomlinson's paintings are layers of meaning and cultural and art historical references. They invite and encourage multiple readings acknowledging the nuance in the discussions she initiates. As a viewer we flit between enjoyment, reassured by their nostalgic familiarity, bathing in their warm glow, and feeling disquieted by an undercurrent of darkness that flows through them.
