This exhibition will show new work by six artists based in south Wales. All artists are teaching Fine Art at the University of South Wales.
Carol Hiles’ beautiful paintings of public gardens are drawn to the arrangements of natural and man-made forms within parks, which seem to combine a sense of liberty with confinement.
Lisa Krigel’s exquisite sets of hand-thrown stoneware set on oak cutting boards investigate themes relating to contemporary culture.
The vivid paintings, prints and objects by Chris Nurse, based on the interaction of 2d and 3d practice, at first seem to be humorous comments on history and politics, but ultimately question the notion of humanity.
The performances of Tiff Oben critically comment on the state of art, artists and art institutions.
The series of quiet still life paintings by Andreas Rüthi investigate the relationship of the vernacular and high art.
Heather Parnell’s evocative drawings of domestic objects explore metaphor and temporality.
