In this series Linda Holloway responds to the notion of wabi-sabi, a Japanese aesthetic concept that embraces asymmetry and imperfection. Working on boards or varying dimensions, Holloway utilises a spare and tranquil palette, exploring her exquisite layers of washes to hint at dream-like landscapes. Works appear more pared back than the artist’s typical painting style yet remain populated with her characteristic diminutive figures, together with looming abstract forms.

Julia Stevenson's complementary works continue the principles of wabi-sabi, with pieces folded in the form of fans. These careful constructions incorporate etchings, monoprints and chine colle individually hand-printed on paper.
