Wednesday 13th March, 6—8pm

“ReadingRoom is proud to announce Too Much to Dream a solo exhibition of new work by Emma Phillips.

On Wednesday, 13 March, from 6–8 pm, please join us for the opening reception…

Set around the focal point of the home, the most recent series of photographs by Emma Phillips give insight into the illusory, diffuse and at times peculiar cross-section of womanhood and memory. Presented as large-scale gelatin silver prints, images of banal, quotidian and familiar subjects’ — landscapes, portraits and still lifes — reveal Phillips’ intimate and gentle gaze, which slowly unfolds and seeks to lay bare a pointed vulnerability and shimmering sense of the unsettling space between reality, illusion and hope”
