Gillian Hyland Moments in Time : A Reflection of Life’s Stories


After Nyne Gallery invites you to a solo show of work by Gillian Hyland, running until the end of March.

The exhibition will showcase a selection of Hyland’s narrative photographs that are psychologically evocative, at once sublimely theatrical yet poignant. Her dramatic photographs are often based on her own poems and other people’s memories and feelings, they depict characters in human dramas and isolated emotional situations. Frozen in time, vulnerable moments are presented in glorious technicolour and timeless sets. The composition of each image suggested a larger narrative set within a single moment.

“For me, it’s not about creating a pretty picture, it’s the intention that lies beneath it that is truly worthwhile. I’m drawn to the thinking mind behind the face, the subjects’s eyes holding a story in their gaze.”
