The work featured in this exhibition brings together a group of artists at varied stages of both life and career. The common threads that tie each of these works together is the unstoppable need to create, the drive to experiment, innovate and continuously make new work that challenge the makers and the concept of “finished” work.
The use of traditional mediums such as charcoal, oil and acrylic are made contemporary as featured artists have plied these mediums into forms that convey their current places of physicality and spirit. The same threads of innovation and currency are seen in non-traditional mediums of discarded aeronautics hardware and laundry detergent bottle that have morphed from their utilitarian purpose into art created with a
distinct aesthetic as unique as their makers.
This exhibition invites viewer to experience each work as a moment in time, a thought, an idea made visible to be observed if only for this moment. And this moment is the only thing we can be sure of.
We are perfect. We are broken.
We are here, in this moment.
