    Unspoken

    31 Oct 2020 – 22 Nov 2020

    I paint from remembered landscapes that I carry with me. I don’t wish to reproduce what I see in front of me, merely to try and paint how I feel about a world that inhabits me. Their inceptions are never clear nor planned but start life like unarticulated words that hang between the said and the unspoken.   Design is sought in moments of uncertainty, building upon marks that appear from the canvas, brought about by fragments of colour, smells and memories.  I have learnt over time to find solace in the confusion and frustration, which at times feels like wearing shoes that slightly pinch but, knowing, trusting that in this flux images will appear without warning or great fanfare; like an pair of lost jeans, the sight of which brings shy comfort.

    Her & Him

    10 Oct 2020 – 28 Oct 2020

    Morgan Jesse Lapin uses nostalgic material from his childhood from the 80s, such as VHS Tape boxes, video game cartridges, and any other 80's house hold items that could cause you to experience flashbacks. Having a background in collecting and curating, he set out to assemble some of his favorite collage artists from NYC, and so in 2013 the Brooklyn Collage Collective was born. The BCC has now exhibited all over the world and has a strong global presence amongst collage makers and collectors alike.  In 2017, Lappin collaborated with The Very Warm, a parent company of Weatherproof, using Lappin’s original collages to design outerwear for men and women which sold-out with Nordstrom’s. In 2018, Lappin was chosen as a guest speaker at Kolaj Fest, a multi-day festival & symposium about contemporary collage and its role in art, culture, and society. I am a decent woman. A pretty good wife—with a great therapist, otherwise I would’ve screwed this one up way too many times. A mother—I think this one I do best except between the hours of 6:15 and 7:30pm and certain whole days at a time. A daughter—I was a pretty terrible daughter growing up but I’m starting to get the hang of it now that I’m a parent. A good sister. And lastly a friend. To some, the best and to others, impossibly guarded. I’m forty three years-old and I’m trying to grow as a person but so is my skin. I’m not that interested in holding onto my youth. My life is far greater now. But letting go isn’t as easy as it sounds. Some days I don’t recognize this person who looks back at me in the mirror. She is older, has responsibilities. She has had to learn that sometimes God has a bigger plan for her life than she does. On the outside, she strives for peace but inside there is a turbulence of holding on too tightly to all these things that have finally brought that peace and true joy. With HER, she turns away from the mirror and turns the camera on her own life—examining the psychology of her age and her gender in black and white, through surreal interpretations and exaggerated gestures, reminiscent of Italian cinema, creating photographs that reflect the universal idea of womanhood and assure HER that she is not on this path alone.

    Wonder

    15 Aug 2020 – 09 Sep 2020

    Two painters, Nat Anderson and Peter Roux, each deeply in touch with the natural environment, take a unique approach to revealing the wonder of the ambient landscapes in which they live, and in turn reveal their own visions of beauty. From brooding melancholy and shimmering light to vibrant playfulness, both bodies of work share a vibrating dynamism that the artists have encountered, understood, and revealed in their own unique way.

    Don't Think Twice by Andrew Antoniou & Paul Thomas

    20 Jun 2020 – 03 Jul 2020

    "Bob Dylan, his songs and poetry, has been a part of our vocabulary of images for over 55 years, since the early days of the folk based protest songs through the electrification of the music that married his stream of consciousness lyrics to rock and roll and all its incarnations. Those images have been moving through our psyche transmuting with time and demanding a place on the page and on a welcoming wall in full view of those, who will hopefully, relate to how we have experienced this epic body of work from one of our greatest Nobel Prize winning poet musicians. Paul Thomas & I have known each other for 50 of those 55 years and we thought perhaps now is the time to start our conversation through drawing, of where Dylan has led us in those 55 years"

    Ethereal World

    04 Jul 2020 – 26 Jul 2020

    This exhibition explores, in a sensual way, movement and stillness; isolation and engulfment; the personal and the global, especially as developed under recent environmental and medical world events. The work invites illusions where figuration and abstraction exchange and engage in ways that transport the mind from external reality to an internal one, to moments beyond language, to an ethereal world of “in-between”.

    Where the Light Is

    12 Sep 2020 – 09 Oct 2020

    Jasmine Mansbridge says of her work - I have poured myself into this new body of work and it is always an emotional thing to come to the end of a process in which I invest so much energy. As the title suggests the exhibition started with an idea in which I could talk about growth, change and metamorphosis and somehow visually represent all the ways this can happen.I could never have predicted that in the time between starting the paintings until now (roughly six months), so many things would change on a large scale with the impact of the Australian bushfires etc.. and then on a global level with the coronavirus now affecting so many people’s plans and livelihood’s. My own personal life has also seen significant shifts, challenges and opportunities, all which are forcing me to expand and learn more about myself and my place in the world. Veronica Green’s mixed media work full of dense and bright colours, shiny materials and a pinch of fluorescent paint, these are the ingredients that allow the New Zealand artist living in Venice Italy to open up to us the doors of her enchanted world. Once immersed in this magical universe, the symbolic elements and thus the many cultural references will show us the way to decode reality, “Where the light is”
