Opening on Tuesday February 18 at 5.30pm.
The interplay between human, rectilinear constructs and curvilinear organic forms are of interest to me. Dendrite patterns are particularly captivating – they can be seen from the microcosmic structures of the brain to those of the macrocosm such as trees and river basins. Contrasts of scale also fascinate me – I have left a magnifier in one of the rooms to aid the viewing of some of the smaller works there.
The egg form is useful in the exploration of my interest in themes of the interior / exterior and our potentiality vis-à-vis the social, economic and political strictures imposed upon us as we grow out into the world. There are many portraits and self-portraits here including those of deceased family and friends. When not creating them for commissions, I find the portrait / self-portrait a utile genre for expressing my concerns. Incorporating recognised signs while developing my own iconography, I try to present my views without falling into crude agitprop. Some humour
Exhibition open Tuesdays to Saturdays – 11am to 4pm.
The gallery closes Sundays and Mondays.
