The notion that ‘black implies white, self implies other and death implies life’ is a dualistic take on human existence explored by Alan Watts

About

This exhibition takes these ideas as its starting point, with particular reference to the relationship we have with ourselves, the need for solitude and social interaction that are often in a state of constant flux and dissonance. 

You can hold yourself separate and this may be the result of blockage, trauma or choice. Existence, though, can also be thought of as an immersive experience of the flesh in all our days and lives. Our existence is always with our ‘encounter’ and ‘experience’ of the world. The painters, sculptors and poets in this show explore the relationship between ‘self’ and ‘other’ and how we are in a constant state of ‘becoming’.
