Victoria Brookland: A thousand thousand gleaming fires
Exhibition of drawings inspired by Brontë dresses
June 06th 2013 - July 29th 2013
Brontë Parsonage Museum
An exhibition of new drawings by artist Victoria Brookland, exploring the passionate heroine in literature and poetry. Victoria Brookland's work investigates how women writers have employed the Gothic genre to reveal hidden aspects of their own natures.
Victoria Brookland has been painting and exhibiting her work for over twenty years and has spent the past few years exploring the lives and writing of nineteenth-century women. Her first series of Bronte inspired paintings, Secret Self, was exhibited at the Brontë Parsonage Museum in 2007 and explored the dresses in the collection. Her exhibition Seeing in the night-time at the Mercer Gallery in Harrogate featured a series of works exploring the lives of the Brontes and Emily Dickinson.
Exhibition free with admission to the Museum.
