Opening Celebrations Day with the artists: Saturday, 23rd January, 10am-5pm

Gallery 1 | Ontmoeten in De Bos (A Chance Meeting in the Forest) by Lisa McKimmie

'In the Dutch summer of 2019 I began sharing a small studio in the forests on the edge of The Hague. I started drawing and moved to oil painting in the late summer and autumn. While I originally planned to use the studio as a base and move about the forests and dunes to work, I ultimately worked in lockdown in the clearing by the Princessetuin garden, painting the same view again and again.'  

Gallery 2 | An Uncaptured Imagination by Andrew Ensor

'What happens to the imagination that escapes capture? What happens to all the unexpressed thoughts, all the hope and dreams that remain unfulfilled? In this series the artist takes famous objects of jewellery and art, symbols of status and wealth and uses them as subject matter to explore the boundaries between painting and drawing. Decorative sculpture is deconstructed, the door to the House of Faberge is kicked down, it’s priceless eggs reduced to little more than Kinder Surprise for oligarchs and plutocrats.'

Gallery 3 | IMPRESSIONS by Leila Frijat, Monisha Chippada, Raya Tolentino, and Sivaan Lansdowne Walker

'Impressions is a group show composed of works by Leila Frijat, Monisha Chippada, Raya Tolentino, and Sivaan Lansdowne Walker. Impressions is an attempt to consider the residual impressions of human gesture and experience. Impressions, characterised by indistinction and ‘unintention’, allude to something more.'

Gallery 4 | Fondest Regards by Remy Roberts

'My work is best described as abstract and surreal landscapes using mixed media. This new body of work is a made up of canvases, paper works and slip cast ceramic canvases. Subject matter comes from a fascination with naive cartoon like figures, graffiti patterns, photography and streetscapes. A lot of concepts derive from my own photographs, which I like to dissect and use as black and white collage pieces. It is mostly about materials and process. Understanding how to use different mediums together in a simplified approach. The works are driven by how the materials speak to one another. Letting the materials guide the process of how they are created but in no particular order.'
