Things are not what they seem. These two artists grasp under the surface. Camilla Lyon focusses on structures that resonate something of a particular era and function. Using decorative lamination - sourced from domestic furniture, in this show her sculpture uncovers a tautological twisting of ideas. It is physically possible to see what's going on here, and yet we grunt wide-eyed with bewildered assent. We collude with her. As usual we want to believe in the veneer. It really looks real doesn't it? And is that bird landing on that - thing, or is it holding up the bird? Jane Ward's collaged digital images of idealised environments depict a world in transition. This subsequent confusion of scale and fragmentation leads to perceptual questions around reality and the imaginary. And …. because we are currently hyper-aware of global states of flux, this work inspires lateral thoughts on utopia and dystopia. Dreamlike it unfolds other possible…..or are they impossible dimensions? What a massive scale. It makes us remember the phrase ' the space beneath us' (beneath the world)
