Final Day of this free exhibition which is a display of artwork that has been created through the COVID crisis.

About

This exhibition is a new series art created during lockdown that explores the themes of repetition, meditation and contemplation.  The artwork consists of many thousands of shredded pieces.  Some include photo-luminescent pigments that have been an ongoing interest for the artist.  Digital pixels in appearance but very much an analogue creative process.  

The practice of destroying something to be able to create something runs through the series.  Visitors are invited to bring their own papers, photos and documents that can be shredded at the exhibition for the artist to use in future artworks.  A symbolic act to let go of something that they no longer want in their life that takes on a new life.     

Artistic influences include Lee Krasner and Agnes Martin.  Other influences include psychotherapy, in particular the archetypes of Jung and Assagioli's inclusion of spirituality into his theories of the human psyche.  Optical illusions, psychedelia, electronic music and the repetition of minimal classical music also have an influence. 

Due to COVID 19 and to keep the exhibition safe, we are asking visitors to book a time to help maintain social distancing in the gallery.
