Damien Kurth

15/06/21 to 11/07/21

Representational images such as a teacup or a jar from the studio are initially considered to be straightforwardly understood.

Self Healing

Shintaro and Yoshiko Nakahara

10/11/20 to 06/12/20

Dynamic artists Yoshiko and Shintaro Nakahara work both individually and collaboratively. Yoshiko works in black ink, delicate and detailed; it is a labour intensive and meticulous process.

Imagine you could rearrange the world.
