His latest exhibitions in Winsor Gallery announces the entitled Perplexities: Space, Form, and Image. The exhibition run from March 1st – March 28th. An opening was held on the evening of March 2nd, from 6-8pm.
The exhibition Perplexities: Space, Form, and Image seeks to investigate the unaccountable, and each piece evokes questions, wonder and confusion. The artwork encourages the audience to make their own connection with perplexity and explore how these works may relate to our own judgements and understanding of the human condition.
Perplexities: Space, Form, and Image presents and challenges the way we consider the various aspects of bodies and spaces, materiality, identity and our environment. Painting against photograph, portal versus realism, materiality against medium, subject against subjectivity, or ambiguity against modality all suggest perplexing distortions of a dual reality. Perplexities: Space, Form and Image forces the viewer to contemplate and connect with what they are looking at and the perplexing questions being asked. Each nartist within the exhibition presents a juxtaposition of “the new” against a background of traditional constructs. From geometric blocks suspended in space, to meticulously manipulated textiles, to overly saturated colourful canvases, the works are influenced by the artists materiality, identity, object and spatiality. Connected by their artistry, description and questions, the works explore the complexities inherent in each piece, and in dialogue with another.
