Our second SUMMER MARATHON takes a revitalised approach to the traditional ‘group show’, presenting 4 artists in back­-to­-back solo exhibitions (in lieu of one group show) over the summer.

About

Inspired by his wife’s pregnancy, the new series of works by American artist Miles Debas looks at the creative power of the human body, using emblematic figurative imagery to illustrate ideas about love, communication, and interrelationships between persons, places, and things. The works create a type of visual language and the malleability of the body and the object. The title of the show is named after one of the paintings and it refers to the idea of separation/connectedness that we are all experiencing at this time. Both the work and the title point to Debas’ effort to manufacture a bit of joy and positivity in order to counteract the stark realities of the moment. He states, ‘I want to present the possibility of optimism’.
