Tropicana by Damien Kurth

Tropicana

Damien Kurth

10 April to 29 April 2018

Damien Kurth’s paintings play with representation in a confounding way. There is nothing deceptive about them, though there is an element of mystery, or the unknowable. They present the viewer with something that is familiar and comforting, yet at the same time subtly challenging. The majority of the objects are vessels of some sort, although their contents and purposes are obscure.

Upcoming Room 1

Dream of Heaven

Reagan Lee

01/05/18 to 20/05/18

Reagan Lee’s style of painting has its origins in the Western painting tradition of Expressionism, although the spiritual basis of his work acknowledges the Eastern religions dominated by Buddhism. In his work, East and West come together in a synthesis of great power and individuality.

Mother and Daughter on Hiatus by Claudia Edwards

Mother and Daughter on Hiatus

Claudia Edwards

10 April to 29 April 2018

The other night my mother and I were talking about things that I do that she finds frustrating. I asked her for an example. She immediately responded with this, “There's a platter of lobster tails for dinner and everybody is eager to go and help themselves, Claudia happens to be the first one to the platter and she will pick the largest tail on the plate ... that’s you.”.

Upcoming Room 2

Animal Life

Paul Martinson

01/05/18 to 20/05/18

What makes a fish, a fish? Why is a light-bulb not a fish? How does a bird relate to a fish? These types of questions, although ridiculous on first reading, reveal a quest for epistemological knowledge, that is to say an appetite for the knowledge of knowledge itself. Martinson boasts a career as a research technician, committed to the science of nature, he asks questions to explain connections between seemingly disparate incidents of vitalism.
