Whispering Pendulum

Private View: Thurs 14th April, 6-8pm
15th April – 18th April 2016 11am – 5 pm

A one-way, onward chain that alternates between writers and artists, Whispering Pendulum is paused here to exhibit the works of 13 contributors. The links between the works move, by turns, in oblique, subversive – and surprisingly reoccurring – patterns, being hastened into existence by one another and the confines of time.

The exhibition is accompanied by and a limited edition publication.

BIG MAD LOVE: Katie Gulson Solo Show 

Private View: Thurs 19th May 5pm – 9pm 
20th May – 22nd May 11am – 4pm 

A surreal and highly ornamented take on modern pictorial scenes taking influence from tempestuous relationships and happenings in her hedonistic lifestyle. Stylistically it draws on memory banks of lurid 80s cartoon imagery and artistic influence of Japanese anime and Ukiyo-e woodblock printing inspiring her bold line work and use of tribal textiles, tattooing and the heavy adornment of the human form. 


Private View: Mon 23rd May 5pm – 8pm 
24th May – 29th May 11am – 4pm 

Transform is a series of collective artworks aiming to confront specific issues regarding human nature. The focus of this project is to set up a dialogue between the artists, their artworks and the audience. Recurring themes of contrast, distortion, and patterns of behaviour have heavily influenced the work, whilst one question kept arising; is it possible to alter human perception?
