‘MAKING MUSIC’ Exhibition

New paintings by Sean Conway
Sean Conway’s work plays with the energy of life, light and colour ? and the movement and music they make together.
Abstract ideas about his love of beauty and balance in nature on various levels have been explored and have evolved over forty years of artistic practice.
His use of wave forms and ‘key lines’ reflects the rhythm and order within the seeming chaos of ‘worlds within worlds’. Many of the shapes and forms are symbolic of what has been seen, sensed and experienced on different levels of reality.
The harmonics of number, form, colour and sound are expressed in many pieces ? in a continual search of finding some balance between our scientific and spiritual consciousness.
The work is always about feelings of wonder and joy that resonate, and help colour our lives. An effort to capture those special but transient moments of pleasure and transcendence; simply being in the moment of enjoyment, and having the freedom of spontaneity in expression ? is behind everything he does.

Open: Tue-Fri 10am-2pm, Fri-Sun 7-9pm

‘Liaisons’ Exhibition
Prints, drawings and paintings by Aloma Berg, Helen Bodycoat, Adele Discerni.
Three artists explore the elemental relationship of a sense of place.
Adelle Discerni looks at her experience from a recent trip to Shanghai s a city of conflicting extremes. These extremes are represented in the streets, its people and their ideals, and of course its architecture. On one hand the city is a realisation of its romantic, harmonic eastern ideals whilst at the same time contrasted against this idyllic representation are the ever increasing and chaotic technological systems that are fast over taking the city. These photos of shanghai try to capture these differences through a pictorial representation of a society trying to find a balance between two extremes appearing and surviving along side each other in Shanghai’s modern landscape.

Helen Bodycoat’s ‘Kumarina Landscape’ works compare the notion of a print in contemporary visual life with that of painting onto canvas with light. The photographic image often records moments of a journey. These point and shoot images depict moments in time, offering glimpses of the landscape around Kumarina. Here the land is seen fleetingly and from a distance, which resonates with the memory of journeys made whilst travelling in a vehicle.

Aloma Berg examines our suburban connection to our decreasing natural flora and our ever increasing capacity to conquer and divide. A focus on the contrast and conflict between the macro and the micro of local environment.

Open: Tue-Fri 10am-2pm, Wed-Sun 7-9pm
