Opening Night: 15.03.2018, 6-9pm

We live in complex and complicated times.  For many these times seem fearful and full of uncertainty with little respite from the social and political assault from those who we would seek guidance and leadership from.  Our leaders use democracy as an exercise in nostalgia with the political imagination paralyzed and its future cancelled indefinitely.

 

We now need the greatest amount of effort to create the smallest degree of change.  The identity project is in need of constant updating yet the effort required to make these changes precludes any change from actually taking place.  A crisis in identity ensues.  The works in this exhibition show the nature and effect of this crisis. 

 

My work has been described as visual skepticism.  I use the visual as a means of challenging received notions of truth and reality, and within the portrait genre notion of self, identity and beauty.  It is a knowledge that understands that truth is reliant upon context, experience and fearlessness.  It also expresses the understanding that “Art” is not made, but found.  (A) truth is always inherent in the real and resistant world, and it is my job, as an artist to act as the facilitator that brings it out into the light.
