Sarah Muirhead | SCOPOPHILIA

Leyden Gallery

4 October - 4 November

Following her previous sold out show ‘Bonded’ at Leyden Gallery in 2015, these new paintings are exhibited for the first time in Muirhead’s eagerly anticipated second solo exhibition.

For over a year, the artist has been working on a collection of images that explore the fetishisation of people we adore or lust after. In her current series of work titled SCOPOPHILIA, Muirhead explores both the beholder’s gaze and the corporeal process of painting.

“Each subject appears realistic, touchable and tangible but their incarnation is unreal, unreachable.” – Sarah Muirhead

This exhibition will be running from 4th October – 4th November 2017.
