Curated by Edd Pearman, âManderley' represents duality - the characteristic of being two-fold: Lightness with Darkness, Life and Death, the tranquil amidst the dreadful. This collection of works presents such dichotomies - each individual artist extracting a sense of beauty from the profane. August yet imposing marquetry, warningly serene photography, and magnetically hypnotic but voyeuristic video work: all initially appear to embody one intention, yet possess in equal measure, opposite qualities. Each of the artists have either studied or taught in the Printmaking Department at the Royal College of Art, London.
âManderley' is kindly supported by: FORSTER, Mark Jason Gallery, My Life in Art & TAG Fine Arts.
