Rust, Resin and Reality

Darryl Rogers 

Opening: Friday 6 December, 6pm

Exhibition Dates 30 November - 5 January 2020

Impermanence, permanence, transience and the timeless are symbolised in a series of 3D works where rust and resin are used as the primary sculptural medium. As a sort of physical manifestations of temporal extremes, these two materials in concert with assemblage, text and other detritus explore aspects of quantum physics, the metaphysical and other entangled bits of informed reality.

Serene and Menacing 

Poetic tensions inherent in the conscious experience of physical bodies

Olly Read

Opening: Friday 6 December, 6pm

Exhibition Dates: 30 November 2019 – 5 January 2020

Serene and Menacing consists of material driven multimedia sculptural and video works exploring the metamorphic nature of flesh as being continually simultaneously formed, unformed, and deformed. Looking to tensions as reflecting the inherent poetic experience we have of our own bodies.
