About

Responding to the themes of love, loss and need, Mission Gallery will be transformed through poetic imagination into an ethereal place of contemplation using figurative construction, painting and sound. ‘We are lost. Spiritually adrift. Road side shrines. Make shift memorials' — Keith Bayliss (2011) As a former place of worship, Mission Gallery is the ideal place for The Enclosed Garden to be presented. Contemporary society has gradually moved away from the use of traditional places where religious celebration and personal contemplation takes place. Instead we see an alternative use of make-shift memorials to lost loved ones and the mass mourning of national celebrities. Responding to the themes of love, loss and need, which have occupied his career, Bayliss examines society's continuing need for spirituality. Expanding the variety of mediums he is predominantly renowned for, including pencil and ink on paper, oil on canvas and relief printing to create an encompassing environment. An environment that contains half life size figurative constructions of painted tissue and wood, placed in a space filled with sound and surrounded by paintings that are figurative, expressive and large scale.
