Gallery 1: FROM SCRATCH - Ella Relf"Audiences carry the freedom to judge art as good, bad, challenging, dull, pleasant, empty or inspiring."From Scratch" seeks to detach art from its creator and reattach to the audience, placing the viewer at the centre of the artistic process. What is required within theself?
Tobe bold enough, proud enough, open enough or daring enough, to create something and call itart?Literally, this exhibition asks you to step beyond observation and paint.
The work seeks to open the daunting aesthetic of creative freedom, and the consequences of judgement; opportunities which are common enough in the digital world but rarely found in the context of a gallery. I invite you to take part inthis moment of ambiguity."
Gallery 2 : Close Up - Serena ReneeThe Close Up' collection is a part of an ongoing series, created from my obsession to observe and capture emotion, moments, spaces in time that I pause with my camera. I need feel energy from my productions for them to be complete, framing them with both visions, of the naked eye and mind's eye.
All images are personal, capturing relationships, whether it be an artist's relationship with her work, relationships with others or self-reflection. The work often shows feet and hands, as I cherish touch and its important part of human exchange with each other and our environments.
Closing in on these moments and gestures promotes and exhibits contemplation of our conditioningas Humans, revealing organically my perspective of life.
Gallery 3 : Contour - Michele DoneganMy art practice involves travelling, noticing, collecting, remembering, valuing, transforming and reconsidering.
As I walk I collect objects and images from the world around me. Walking allows slow progress through the world and encourages the walker to notice things in detail that other forms of travel do not allow. The works in Contour share this experience and detail with the viewer.
Contour consists of works that are a remake and reinterpretation of small pieces of cuttlefish found whilst walking on the beach where I live. The tiny details held within the bone are seen as contours. These contours form their own landscapes and each piece is unique. I see these landscapes as capturing both time and the movement of the ocean.
My work always invites the viewer into my world where I re-present the world as I see it. I see beauty in the everyday object and aim to express that beauty through a visual philosophy that references place, history and memory.
