Collectors Contemporary is proud to announce the opening of Aquaria, a new solo exhibition by the award winning contemporary British painter Sarah Harvey.

Harvey is internationally recognised for her paintings of the human figure, predominantly self-portraits, suspended in luscious light-filled azure and aquamarine waters. Over ten years ago the artist discovered a green swimming pool in the Tuscan hills of Italy, an experience that inspired her to explore the sensuous and enigmatic qualities of water and light. Since then Harvey has continued to paint the body submerged and abstracted by liquid landscapes that are uniquely her own, characterised by undulating currents, distorted shadows and refractions of sunlight.

The artist has created a new body of work especially for Aquaria featuring a deeper engagement with abstraction and scale. Through a series of large-scale and multi-panelled paintings the artist will bring the viewer into a new encounter with her work. The exhibition will also showcase a large Dodecatych which took eight months to complete and measures just under 20 metres in length.

The exhibition runs from 3 April - 17 May 2014.
