The Mountains are Calling and I Must Go
20th November 2021 – 18th December 2021
Mountains are so often beguiling. They signal the transition from ordinary earth, to the extraordinary and the return therefrom. These are the sacred monuments that inspire the work of Sadie Tierney.
Rabley Gallery is thrilled to exhibit a new collection of Sadie’s work that ventures through mountain ranges and morning dusks, in a variety of mediums.
Leysin Sunset: High Wire
Acrylic, Somerset Satin 400gsm paper, 50 x 75 cm, 2021
“This painting was made in response to a visit to Switzerland. It was amazing to be immersed in a vast, wild landscape and watch the tiny precarious cable cars carrying people to the mountain tops, a fragile but constant connection to the enormity and visual permanence of nature on a grand scale.”
Woodcut, Somerset Satin 400gsm paper, 56 x 76 cm, 2021
“Mount Fuji is a powerful symbol of a nation, sometimes crystal clear at other times lost in haze and fog, symmetrical and timeless. I felt blessed to have seen it at all, and the feelings of awe, transience and feeling tiny in the enormity of its presence stayed with me and is still informing an ongoing series of work.”
Lithograph and Hand Colour, 27 x 35 cm, 2021
Part of a limited edition series, this lithograph and others are informed by Sadie’s various sketches and drawings recording glimpses of some of the incredible places she has travelled to. A combination of dappled sunset sky, and expressive mountain landscape inspires both awe and adventure.
