Keijsers Koning will present "Mother of Pearl," an exhibition of new works by Natalie Westbrook. This is the artist’s first solo show with the gallery.

The exhibition features seven new paintings, and Westbrook’s first voyage into sculpture. The work explores themes of progeny and pathos conjured through an imaginative world and variably integrated material techniques.

The title refers to the iridescent interior of a mollusk, emerging from a living organism forming a protective shell. The shell is composed of the same material as the pearl. The latter is highly sought after; the shell, although vital, is usually a mere throwaway. It is this cultural value that becomes a consideration within the work, as questions of aesthetics and its values are tested.

The exhibition will remain on display through November 19.
