BACK GALLERY : : IMAGINABLE CHARACTERS by ALLURE (GEORGIA LAURIE)

An exploration of how everything we have done, seen and created is stored inside our bodies. Our experiences and the people within them are literally apart of us. Through portraiture I want to capture some of these deeper narratives people store within themselves, bring them to life make them imaginable and relatable, as if to paint a visual x-ray of one’s story. Delving deep into the relationships between fragility and strength and how they coincide throughout these experiences. How our vulnerability can become the backbone of our strength and help us to reconstruct an imaginable autonomous identity. Since experimenting with public/street art I fell in love with the freedom of doing art in this manner. walking past a corner that was once just a corner and it then being a corner with a piece of art on it. the simplicity and honesty of it excited me and continues to do so. Through painting I hope I can urge people to imagine and make their own interpretations of what stories, strengths and weaknesses are stored in us just waiting for the telling.

UPSTAIRS GALLERY : : SENSORS IN GRIEF by SARAH TAYLOR

This project aims to redefine the relationship that one has with the dead, and with mourning. In western culture, grieving for a death seems to have a limiting and untrue agenda. Usually observed through time, memory and tears. In ‘sensors in grief’ Taylor stimulates an immersive experience for both artist and audience as a means of learning about and acknowledging the warped and uncertain nature of grief.

SIDE GALLERY : : GINMOKUSEI by BENJAMIN KNOCK

The sweet smell of the forest that permeates down from the hills into the city. Artist Benjamin Knock captures those elements, flora and fauna using traditional woodblock printing techniques (hanga). The inspiration for his new body of work has been derived from exploring the mountains and jungles of Yakushima Island situated off the southern tip of Japan. This ecosystem, being one of the most diverse in the world is perfect brain food for this collection of works. “I hope you all can have a taste derived from its natural splendour”.
