5 November to 28 January
Recently selected as the AXIS artist's website 'Artist of the Month', North Yorkshire based Rhiannon Lowe makes work about memories of objects and spaces. For her exhibition at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre, Rhiannon will be showing a series of delicate drawings of a variety of subjects including stilts, bunkbeds, cupboards, rooms and doorways, moths and struts that hold up wayward buildings.
Other forms are more ambiguous leaving the viewer to speculate as to their meaning or project their own imagination into images of shadows, dark spaces and indistinct objects, alluding to undisclosed fears, anxieties and half-remembered childhood memories.
'My drawings are a way of me trying to retain something, even a fleeting memory, that I have never quite had hold of, and most likely never will. I have a fear that I should be remembering more, but I'm not sure I know, or want to know exactly what.'
20-21 Visual Arts Centre is North Lincolnshire's premier venue for the contemporary visual arts. Since opening in 2001 the gallery has received over 400,000 visitors to it's five gallery spaces showing contemporary fine art, craft and design by regional national and internationally based artists. The venue boasts a popular café, daily family activities and a shop selling handmade gifts by some of the UK's leading makers.
