‘On the Edge of Infinity’, draws together recent works by artist Jerry Shearing with his passion for the written word. Having held an interest in the concept of infinity for a long time, the exhibition explores efforts to express this idea in visual language, with individual pieces supported by written compositions as he strives for representation towards the infinite. “I am intrigued by the nature of the sea, wrapping itself around the sphere of our planet; we view the horizon, the line where the sea meets the sky, but in reality, the sea in fact falls away and disappears, whilst the sky continues on, a void leading to infinity.”

The exhibition features paintings and drawings exploring this triality of sea, sky and land, often in triptych form, with a tendency towards to abstract, though representational nuances populate the work with suggestions of the three natural elements.

In ‘Coastal Resonance’, Andrea’s work looks to challenge the traditional form of the rectangular, wall hung painting, her series defying the expectations of 2D visual art in work that breaks the barriers between the sculptural and the traditional expectations of wall art. Similarly, 2D works take sculptural form to become 3D freestanding pieces with specially constructed plinths that form a part of the work itself. “Since my Foundation Course at Eastbourne College of Art and subsequent training at Edinburgh College of Art, both located by the coast, I have had a passion for painting the coast, the sea, the cliffs, the rock pools and breakwaters.” The series explores the seascapes and coastline vistas of the south coast.

‘On the Edge of Infinity’ and ‘Coastal Resonance’ will launch on July 6th, 18:00-20:00 with the exhibition running from 3rd-23rd July.
