The predictability of Chaos and the uncertainty of Order are the focus for this dynamic and colourful exhibition of paintings and drawings at Highgate Gallery from May 18th until May 31st.


Order and Chaos philosophies have peppered religious and scientific history for millennia with ideas formed around the ‘Chaos Theory’ coming to the fore in the middle of last century.  These are the subject matter for playful new works, many executed in low relief which adds to the visual uncertainty - a change in the angle of view reveals aspects that cannot be seen from elsewhere.

Slade trained Stephen Brooks has often played with ideas and questions that have created ideological dilemmas.  This was also the case in a previous exhibition, ‘Ptolemy’s Mythtake’ at Highgate Gallery in 2008.
