This exhibition of pictures, drawn in a variety of medium, is called ‘The Choice’. This choice is about the experience and visualization of reality; about how we prioritise the significance of fact or fantasy in how we interpret the processes and possibilities of the world around us…

THE CHOICE

If one must choose

Between dream world and day world

Between the factual that dissolves in thought

Or fantasies that harden into shapes

More bright than bronze,

I will accept the latter and deny

All that projects upon the eye

Inconsequential forms

In sleep, we meet ourselves

Not as we are.

But as we might have been

If those we chose as parents were more wise,

And those who taught us spoke like Socrates.

Here we are free

To take that other path and still achieve

The multicoloured garments of desire.

In some of these pictures the materiality of feathers is contrasted with the fantasy of flight. In others stones have faces… What would you choose?
