The current show at Oriel Q features the first solo exhibition of Geraint Evans entitled “Landscape of First World Problems.” Here Evans examines the contemporary survival strategies of those living in the first world. He considers both the turmoil and the banality of these circumstances using large scale drawings, prints and installation. This work is the culmination of three years spent examining contemporary life on the fringes of the urban landscape. The work urges the viewer to participate in dialogues and promotes engagement with some of the social issues affecting a post religious, post financial crash Britain.

This exhibition transfers the underlying ailments of the typically urban condition to the rural heart of Pembrokeshire for exploration and contemplation.

Also exhibiting on the stairs is photography by Chris Rees. Superb black and white portraits of characters in their surroundings including shopkeepers in some quirky establishments in Pembrokeshire.
