    The Waiting Room

    09 Oct 2020 – 10 Dec 2020

    THE WAITING ROOM Doctors, Nurses and Patients This exhibition was planned in March, just as COVID19 was hitting its stride. We wanted to celebrate the heroic efforts of our front-line medical workers, so many of whom marched head long into the battle, working long hours and risking their own health. However, over the months, it has grown into a contemplation of ‘waiting’. There are many different types of waiting. Waiting for a train, waiting one’s turn, waiting for an answer. Today, many of us are waiting for the end of a pandemic. We are waiting to be reunited, for our businesses to open, our jobs to restart. We wait to be tested and we await the results. We await medical diagnosis while we wait in the doctor’s virtual waiting rooms. When Jim Pavlidis’ ageing father gave up his driver’s licence in February, Jim stepped in as carer and now drives his ageing parents to their various medical appointments. The result is a series of thoughtful portraits as a meditation on ageing and frailty, observed over many hours in the “waiting room”. Aly Aitkens other worldly sculptures, whist made of solid materials such as wood and concrete, also consider the frail and vulnerable. With daily headlines warning us of a mental health crisis gaining momentum, Aly’s works points to the turmoil experienced by those who live in isolation and questions whether the whole is really greater than the sum of the parts. Steve May knows about waiting rooms, as he documents a very personal journey through illness and the medical system, reminding us that we are fortunate to have such skilled professionals who can repair, heal and make well. Savina Hopkins interest in the interface between damage and healing developed during an artist-in-residence program at St Vincent’s Hospital. During her residency, she explored this relationship through her delicate band-aid portraits. Patrick Francis paints people at work, often those he admires. Using broad brush strokes and symbolic colour coupled with form and content, Patrick highlights the essence of his subject whilst accentuating his customary emotional absorption in his work. This exhibition is dedicated to our front-line medical professionals for which we give thanks, not only during a pandemic, but for being there… always.

    Amorphous Gorgeous

    04 Sep 2020 – 10 Dec 2020

    Studio experimentation is the birth place of most finished artworks, whose genesis lies in the interplay of materials and creative behaviour. Dead ends, happy accidents, and discoveries in solitude are variously important to all artists, but particularly those artists whose process thrives on the aesthetics of random outcomes within a controlled working environment. This exhibition showcases work by four highly energetic and experimental artists. With interests in the new, the sustainable, the political, even the geophysical, these artists are united in their knowledge that fearless experimentation is transformative. As they dwell and play amid the dynamic fluidity of materials in their practice these four artists have each, in their own way, discovered the amorphous and the gorgeous.

    Get some perspective!

    10 Aug 2020 – 10 Dec 2020

    We live in a three-dimensional world where the two-dimensional are constantly rendered to appear as 3D. It’s such a familiar concept to the contemporary viewer that it’s easy to forget there was a time when the idea of lineal perspective was still very new. Of course, “perspective” has always existed, and the ancient Greeks understood it philosophically. However, measuring it and modelling it, was left to the 15th Century Italian architect and engineer Filippo Brunelleschi who, around 1415, demonstrated a mathematical approach that proved how forms and space shrink in size according to their location and distance from the eye. In 1435 Leon Battista Alberti was also working on a theory of linear perspective relying on mathematics. Alberti made this new and exciting field popular through his published treatise Della Pictura (On Painting). These two key players had an enormous impact on European artists and their methods are still used by artists, designers and architects today. In this exhibition we showcase works by artists who apply their own “viewpoint” to the wonderful world of “perspective”.
