A framed work from Melinda Le Guay's Conflict series and a Peter Tilley sculpture are now available at the Gallery.

Melinda Le Guay:

This dress was made by the artist laboriously knitting layers of enamelled copper wire and then embellishing the garment with found objects and items of adornment.

Le Guay comments on this series saying: “My research and work has become increasingly concerned with nurturing, healing and protecting the fragile and vulnerable… [It] hinges on the physical and psychological susceptibility of the young female… Still immersed in materiality, my work is not generated by conscious thought but is experiential and process driven…” – 2011

Peter Tilley:

Interested in the associated meanings of symbols such as the standing man, empty chair, suitcase, vessel, cloud and lone tree, Peter Tilley is able to convey messages using a simplicity of form. His newest work utilises the symbols of the vessel and the cloud, whilst also exploring texture through his use of mixed timbers in both raw and finished states, along with bronze and gold leaf.
