Tales from the Afterlife


On October 20, a new exhibition of works by Matt Hardman under the title: “Tales from the Afterlife” opens at the Rye Art Gallery. The artist has been described as an exponent of contemporary gothic impressionism, in which figures and landscapes are rendered in images “by turns, strange and sublime, disturbing and beautiful,” in the words of the current Gallery programme.
