In this, her third solo exhibition at the Tanks, Angela Meyer brings together European and Eastern traditions in her own colourful and dramatic style.

The exhibition Heart of stone: rock of ages is an observation of the historical and the everyday. Angela responds to the paintings of Michelangelo’s Flood, The Fall and The Creation. She playfully appropriates Gericault’s Raft of the Medusa and Da Vinci’s Virgin of the Rocks.

Her work also reflects on the paintings of Shi Tao who used gestural lines and forms to express his value of innovation and freedom. Borrowing from historical paintings is a way to understand the world, where within the inanimate picture lives human feeling.
