CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

Liz Shreeve
Light and Colour

19 March – 12 April 2020

Liz Shreeve’s work investigates light, colour and the mathematics of architecture and nature. Her practice is based on observations of the natural and man-made environment, with inspiration coming from the way light hits and colours surfaces. Small repeating units are used to catch and colour light, to recreate, for the viewer, the sensual experience of those observations. 

The work in this exhibition is an attempt to strip things back to their simple rules, to recognise and acknowledge the patterns and order that surround us. It is a celebration of the visual, a recognition that delight really does have something to do with light.

Kaylene Brooks
RAW

19 March – 12 April 2020

Taking inspiration from Dutch artist Sandra de Groot and French artist Jim Skull as well as Oceanic and Tribal Arts, Kaylene Brooks blurs boundaries by moving the old and mundane into the odd and contemporary with her unusual and at times uncomfortable and unnerving pieces.

In this collection “RAW” Brooks explores texture and form through contemporary fibre art. In a story of sculptural mixed media fusions, the artist brings the 13th century Arabian craft of Macramé (also made popular in the 60’s and 70’s) into the modern era by combining natural materials, manmade and industrial objects, as well as light and negative space.
