Three emerging multi-media artists come together to show work resulting from an investigation into the world we inhabit today and how it affects us. Probing the mind to discover another layer of experience, the unconscious, which lies beneath the layers of social and psychological conditioning, they invite the viewer to form their own responses.
Indra Alubauskaite’s paintings reference how we have come to accept at face value what we see from the barrage of information the world of marketing produces. By focusing in on small details of familiar advertisements, the viewer is asked to consider whether we have independent thought anymore or if we ignore choice as an option.
Daniel Heelan uses old printing screens in the creation of abstract portraits. Using the surface as a cathartic transformational mirror into the human mind, these images serve as both a reflection and an enquiry. This enquiry is concerned with whether the outer world we inhabit as individuals increasingly reflects on or affects our psychological state and whether a good balance can be drawn.
Hilary Kennett’s ethereal installation suggests a language of memories created as we pass through the same spaces and times. Our many and varied responses and experiences create rhythms as we move around and interact with each other.
These works sit well together as all three artists use an intuitive process, intended to stimulate both the viewer’s visual and underlying senses, asking them to come to individual conclusions on how they view this world we all share.
