Hiding - An exhibition of artwork by Grace Currie
The Gateway Gallery is proud to present ‘Hiding’ – a highly thought-provoking exhibition of artwork by local emerging artist, Grace Currie.
In 2010, aged 17, Grace’s life hung by a thread after a serious traffic accident resulted in severe brain injury leaving her with interrelating disabilities and a neurodivergent view of the world.
Her work often uses these challenges to confront viewers, to reflect her resistance to the reductive label ‘disabled’ or the disorientating sense of fractured self 24/7 care engenders. She is inspired by artists who express inner feelings through portraiture. Grace’s work uses the powerful tension that childlike form in painting can create when themes are adult.
‘Hiding’ is set to be a unique and fascinating exhibition giving insights into Grace’s life through portraiture, mixed-media, ceramics and 3D work from past performance pieces.
The exhibition runs from 10th November until 21st December 2023 at the Gateway Gallery, Gateway Centre, Chester Street, Shrewsbury SY1 1NB.
