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…
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
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?
