September Fri-Sun 12-6
The show is made up of a series of recent works that lead the visitor through the gallery space, inviting a narrative interpretation – the large wall-mounted abstracts that hint at industrial scale building plans introduce a log cabin that doesn’t so much recall a specific place but more a displaced memory. Alongside this a large drawing on glass is scratched out of red oxide with objects that have meant and continue to resonate with meaning: the empty house in the woods, games from childhood, holidays away.
On a formal level the show questions the relationship between the sculptural line in space and the line on the page: lines that define edges while adding colour, tone and light and lines that are themselves simply edges.
the show has a strong sense of timelessness in its rejection of the fashionable
and faddish, it also recalls a time, both historical and individual that
pre-dates the split between what might be called ‘gallery art’
and the vernacular. As Mark Croxford says “In the show there’s
no dividing line between folk art and high art”
