Gairloch Gardens


For his solo exhibition at Oakville Galleries, Sullivan will stage Gairloch Gardens as a fictional country house inspired by well-known fictional settings, such as E.M. Forster’s Howards End and Belle Ombre, the home of Patricia Highsmith’s Tom Ripley. Featuring installations of books, screens and furniture sculptures; wall drawing; and a selection of recent works from his ongoing Poster Drawings series—including new works referencing decorative mirrors—Sullivan reimagines Gairloch estate as the setting of oblique narratives of class conflict, romance, family melodrama, and murder.
