With her persistent and tenacious pursuit of an imagined architectural landscape over some 30 years of painting, Harriet Mena Hill ( Eagle/EMH Arts, map 30) seems to be doing just this and to ever subtler and more moving effect. Exhibiting recent work together with some earlier (2012) panel paintings that were at Worcester Cathedral, she does, to a quite remarkable degree, make the ‘slow looking’ of an engaged viewer a vital element in the work’s realized power – both ecstatic and contemplative.
