We are extremely pleased to be exhibiting the wonderful work of artist Deborah Gardner - her work is an explosion of thoughts, memories and fragments on canvas.

About

'How small a thought it takes to fill a whole life' Wittgenstein

For over thirty years I have been making images combining colour, line, shape, texture and words.  I am influenced and inspired by myriads of things - conversations, books, films, music, TV, history, politics, religion, newspapers, places, people, relationships, feelings and memories.

Like a magpie I hoard these fragments (both real and imagined) then reassemble them, turning unimportant scraps into rectangular visual narratives.  I weave these elements with loss, sadness and the small euphoric minutiae of being alive and here, whatever that means.  I attempt to evoke other realities enabling me to become something other than myself.  A picture works when I don't recognise it; as though it has come from somewhere or someone else.

To read more of Deborah's artist statement you will have to come along to the exhibition, it is a visual feast.
