A conversation in images between the artists Dean Byass and Geoff Dunlop

About

Two artists meet. They are fascinated by each other’s work, despite the lack of obvious visual correspondence. They start a conversation, and discover that the theme of time is a significant point of connection. This exhibition is a continuation of that conversation, expressed through images. Time, they agree, is perhaps the most slippery of the essential concepts. Einstein, the great guru of time, even suggested that it was a fiction: ”... we physicists believe the separation between past, present and future is only an illusion, although a convincing one.” In his multi-layered prints, Dean Byass interrogates the “moment” and discovers there Einstein’s illusion - not a fluent narrative but a series of 
discreet fragments that we reconstruct in our minds, to make the world at least seem coherent. In his “paintings with a lens”, Geoff Dunlop presents evidence of layer upon layer of simultaneous timescales, from the instantaneous to the infinitely ancient, all held together in an illusion of the now.
