FRONT GALLERY

HOLLOW by CHRISTOPHER HANCOCK

'Hollow' is a collection of new paintings by Christopher Hancock made throughout 2017. This new body of work sees Hancock continue
his exploration of evocative forms that appear as though dramatically sculpted onto the canvas. These paintings reflect a notable
point of progress in the artists practice, and reveal crucial developments within medium
and technique. Peer into the hollow, a void
of opportunity. Create shapes, for curious
minds avail.

 



 

BACK GALLERY

JOURNEY by LUKE RION

Continuing on from the theme of the previous exhibition ‘Osmosis’, ‘Journey’ is a body of work that further explores a displaced emotional state of identity. Through environment and colour, the paintings expand on the concept of an internalized emotional shift. Over the span of one day, from pre-dawn to late evening, the works follow a series of characters as they traverse different environments, capturing the subtle sense of change that is inflicted upon their sense of identity. 

 

SIDE GALLERY

FEATHERS & FUR by NICOLE EVANS

Compelled and inspired by animals I've been fortunate enough to behold on recent travels, I decided to create a series of studies which attempt to capture the beauty I see in them. Whether they be creatures adored greatly by humans or ones that are typically considered pests, all the animals I have depicted are ones that I find enchanting. I hope my pieces have an almost hypnotic effect that draw the viewer in - much like the experience I had when witnessing these creatures in person - and that the works convey even somewhat of the sense of warmth I felt when witnessing these fauna.

 








 

UPSTAIRS GALLERY

SPOOKS by NADIA TOUKHSATI

Spooks is an exhibition of figurative paintings developed over the last 18 months designed to illustrate a narrative concerning human nature, fear, ideology and our pursuit of happiness. Islamic patterns and devices are often explored in my work and are intrinsically linked to my Moroccan heritage. I also visually draw inspiration from children's sticker books, comic panels, and platform video games. 
 Some of these works explore trepanning, the practice of drilling a hole through one’s skull to experience a permanently altered state of consciousness. Tension and interpersonal exchanges feature as both literal depictions of 'spooks', and are also described in symbolic allegory. In short, spooks are thoughts and ideas that take possession of the human ego, as though they were ghosts taking possession of souls. 

"He who is infatuated with 'man' leaves persons out of account so far as that infatuation extends, and floats in an ideal, sacred interest. Man, you see, is not a person, but an ideal, a spook."
- Max Stirner
