    Thu 10th Dec, 2015 - Sun 3rd Jan, 2016

    Resemblance: Paintings by Fiona Gregg

    'Resemblance' is the culmination of Gregg's desires to bridge the gap between artist and audience; using mirrors not only as subjects but as objects within the exhibition space seemed a pertinent solution, situating the viewer inside the show and implicating them within it: a work of art themself. In this way each visitor will experience a different exhibition-- one which does not shy away fro... read more...

    Hollow: New Works by Jaedan Chayce Leimert

    Through sculpture, painting, and photography, Hollow contemplates themes of materiality, naturalism and the presence of absence. The works are restricted to specific materials to collectively unify the objects, allowing room for internal conversation. Arrangement is of equal importance to the individual pieces. The exhibition is reductive, reflective and delineates a raw poeticism. Jaedan C... read more...

Following a methodical routine, she filled the 24ft roll of paper with an intric... read more...
