Parallel to Being
Runs from 15 January to 3 February 2018.
Mikaela Marshall's exhibition builds and extends from her research for her Master Thesis, and sits under the umbrella of Conceptual Art.
'Wherever there is life, there is movement, and the movement of life is specifically of becoming as it draws the whole of being to itself to become, by itself alone, a source of meaning. So I choose the humble city as the foundation to mapping meaning, as I think it is important to visualise the interplay of transience and read the inhabitants; to listen to the voices not heard in place and express this movement. With intense investigation, but also with artistic intuition, I attempt to cut across this division, this spectacle of disconnection, and bring to the forefront what connections might have been, and what connections could yet be. Condensing relativistic conditions such as time and space onto a single plane will reveal, behind the conventional image of a network of interacting entities, the meshwork of interwoven lines; interwoven lives.'
On show, work by students of David Ryan's Studio painting classes.
Opening, Tuesday 16 January, 5:30pm, All Welcome.
Runs until 3 February 2018.
