Imogen Allen ‘Lumen’ | Young Penwith Artist 2024

26th July 2024 - 24th August 2024

We are delighted to introduce you to our 2024 Young Penwith Artist, Imogen Allen.

Join us for the preview on 26th July from 17:30 onwards, to celebrate this new collection of works.

‘Lumen’ is defined as a unit for measuring the amount of light something produces. This new group of works by Imogen Allen have the inner light of the natural world at their core. Through painting the intricate structures of lichens, fungi and flowers, Allen’s new series offers a profound interconnection between one’s inner being and the more-than-human world. Her philosophy is rooted in the understanding that Earth is a symbiotic ecosystem, with humans both descending from and being intimately entwined with natural forms we perceive. Her luminous hues and sensitive touch invites viewers to explore this intrinsic unity. Moving in and out of focus, her paintings embrace our deep relationship with the wild and the ineffable light that flows through all living things.
