Curated by Laura Moreton-Griffiths
Georgina Corrie | Dom Lawson | Laura Moreton-Griffiths | Laurence Noga | Tanis Shaw | Lucy Soni | Sonia Stanyard
Georgina Corrie’s wall-based ceramics explore colour, optical geometry and ornate painted planes; Dom Lawson’s sculptural objects and drawings of pipe dreams and musings build on recurrent themes of nihilism and the void; Laura Moreton-Griffiths’ drawings and objects depict surreal narratives of war; Laurence Noga’s collages and colourfield paintings investigate process, texture and surface; Lucy Soni’s paintings and sculptural objects preserve the everyday and the throw away; Sonia Stanyard’s sensual landscapes intuitively move between realism and abstraction; Tanis Shaw paints portraits of decay, melancholy and loss.
The exhibition title takes inspiration from eye music, a translation of the German word Augenmusik . Augenmusik is the visual appearance of a musical score that communicates visual symbolic meaning. All the work in this exhibition uses strong visual language akin to the effect of music on the senses and our internal perspectives; the interplay of colour in the space behind our eyes, luminosity the dark, sunlight on our eyelids, elusive memories and thoughts taking form.
