Daniel Slater reviews the recent exhibition Mary Webb: Journeys in Colour at Hatton Gallery.

Slater writes that "pictorially certain regions in these paintings appear bound by some unseen adhesion; instantaneously aided by their counterparts. Many are often departmentalised by a cloisonné of black bands, which evoke remote images of intense shadows behind objects which are themselves suffused with white light. This is perhaps the greatest allure of Webb’s work – its capacity to evoke vivid thoughts and memories of the nameless surroundings in which we are inextricably framed and bound."
