FRONT GALLERY : : DREICH by Brian Cheung

DREICH is the culmination of a recent string of artist residencies in Norway, Shetland and Finland. These residencies were undertaken for the most part in quiet isolation in remote studios on islands and lighthouses where the element of water was an inescapable recurring theme. The show features work created both during and after returning home from this extended sabbatical. From violent gales in Shetland, to calm ripples in the Finnish archipelago, the grey mist of the Baltic and the clear salty air of the Victorian coastline – DREICH is an exploration of the commonality of water, and the differences and contrasts brought on by wind, weather and light.

BACK GALLERY : : The Man On Analogue Television Is Concerned About Reception by Jonathon Harris

Jonathon Harris explores the idea of symbols, image, abstraction and representation in his new installations that merge memories, past events and recollections.

As the past vanishes into the present and the present builds for the future; this is either a set where previously spoken words and actions hang around like ghosts, or a space where the performer is about to lead us through a story of ‘when’, ‘how’ and ‘what if?’.

Look carefully, answers and history are present.

SIDE GALLERY : What Cheer by Emma Hampton

Between colour clashes and simple patterns there lies some kind of cheer, but what cheer? This body of work was created over a couple of years in which I very much struggled with this question and have still struggled to answer. Hoping to find it through the brightening of my own world; these pieces were born.

UPSTAIRS GALLERY : : Creatures, you and I. by Anna Seed

Animals possess an infectious and alluring freedom of spirit; unfettered by the trappings of a human existence of work, social responsibilities, and expectations. Theirs is a life in the moment, of emotions and experiences unrestrained. Humans share in this life for the brief time of their childhoods, years of wonder and exploration. This show draws on my experience of that time -unhindered play in nature, delight in the world and its beauties, and joy in the company of the imagined (or not-so?) characters who were my playfellows, and who have followed me through my art to this day.
