The Falling Dark
Exhibition held at Liverpool St Gallery, June 2007
Anwen Keeling’s world is a shadowy, elegant place. It’s a place alive with the haunting beauty of the sky after a flash of lightning; the emptiness between people when conversation clatters to the floor; the tension of a held breath behind a locked door.. Like film stills from a Hitchcock thriller, Anwen’s latest exhibition, ‘The Falling Dark’, captures elegant visions of isolated women poised on the edge of something more. In ‘Suspense’ a blonde woman climbs a dark staircase, her face hidden by shadows, her body heavy with anticipation. In ‘Drifting’ a woman is suspended in the bath, lost in thought as the delicate afternoon light washes over her. ‘The Falling Dark’ is truly gripping viewing.
