eight new-generation artists explore what it is to be human

About

Wallspace presents the first of an annual series of exhibitions showing the work of emerging and mid-career artists. Inspire: mortal & visible gathers together eight artists with a track record in highly individual explorations of the human condition. Jyll Bradley Aileen Campbell Julie Cook Katharine Dowson Kaori Homma Cath Keay Rona Smith Sparks Julie Cook combines 'found materials of comfort' as protection against, or healing for 'internal turmoil, collective trauma and pain'. Rona Smith and Jyll Bradley examine, respectively, moments of everyday and heightened ritual. Japanese-born Kaori Homma deals with feelings of displacement and disinheritance and the concept of 'eastness'. Aileen Campbell draws on her choral background to challenge assumptions about what it means to 'give voice'. Katharine Dowson responds to the fabric of the church, using glass to harness light in an ethereal exploration of miraculous biblical narratives. Cath Keay's earthier extruded clay sculptures depict the dialogue of female psychiatric patients who discuss their feelings in very physical terms. The collaborative artists' group Sparks (Michael Gough, Andy Huntington and Caz Puntis) employ their distinctive 'skills switch' to produce a mixed-media meditation on hope.
