Self Reflection: Benon Lutaaya Benon Lutaaya’s work, borne out of struggle materially and emotionally is expressed through a very particular stylistic methodology that can convey such struggles. He works with recycled found paper, overlaid and worked into the surface where rough sketches of the image and then painterly interventions create an image that is powerful and intriguing. - Dr. Danny Shorkend

Cross-Pollination: Lars J. Fishedick “In the heat of working towards this exhibition, on five or six pieces at the same time, unexpected things started to occur. Each piece did something to the others: infecting each other. There was a fertilisation taking place… a cross-pollination.  This word is mainly used in botanical terms, but it is also used in relation to

Redemptive Beauty: Group Show

2017-08-03T09:54:58+00:00

REDEMPTIVE BEAUTY The curious thing about beauty, even though aestheticians have attempted to discern an objective definition, is that it seems to change just as fashions do – from culture to culture and from individual to individual. This applies as much to the artist herself as it does to the “consumer” of art. With the advent of pop and the breaking down of

Paradise Regained: A group exhibition.

2017-08-03T09:57:14+00:00

Seventeenth century poet John Milton’s epic masterpiece, Paradise Regained is a complex tale. There are obvious biblical references to Adam and Eve, the Fall and subsequent attempts to reclaim Eden. Although the language is often convoluted and terse, there are subtle nuances: the beguiling force of the evil tempter; the mythical love shared between the first people; the attempt to recover
