RESISTING THE FAMILIAR


 

RUNS FROM  7TH TO 24TH JULY 2018. OPENING HOURS FROM 11 TO 4


An exhibition of painting and drawing by Joyce Gunn-Cairns, Mary Trodden and Hayley Whittingham, which celebrates the figure in a variety of experiences.

The work draws on the theme of shadows and the act of seeing as a consciously attentive process responsible for transforming visual information.

The shadow could be part of ourselves to which we are closely connected but which remains unfamiliar, sometimes represented as an animal or treasured object to express the disparity between the projected and inner self.

The artists seek to create a link to each other’s way of working, it is a process of discovery, of revealing things about themselves and by which the characters within the work become sanctified amid the rituals of ordinary life.

 

“As I understand it, art is one of the chief organs of what, for want of a better word, I must call the spiritual life”.

An essay on aesthetics (1909)  Roger Fry.
