FRONT GALLERY

LIGHT COLLAPSING
By Ryan Pola

This body of work follows a theme of light. Light beams, glimmers, bombards, and thrashes as it filters through both person, creature and land. Drawings dually explore the darkness that permeates behind light, how both contend to consume one another in an ouroboros of nature.

 


 

BACK GALLERY

MORE LIKE A SPOON THAN A FORK
by Matthew Dunne

We are both a part of nature and separate from it. All actions, no matter how mundane affect the world around us. We live in that grey area between everyday thoughtlessness and the adaptability of nature. Trim a branch, save a bird, park a car: something is altered. There are no pointless actions, just unintended consequences.

More Like a Spoon Than a Fork is a series of photographs that examine this grey area and its facets. Our relationship to the natural world – for better and worse – is the central theme in this work.

  




 

SIDE GALLERY

FRAGILE AND FEROCIOUS
by Veronica Cashin

Golden rays land on my collarbone. Fingertips glow. Lighting up the tiny hairs. The garden tap filling her bucket. Avian sopranos harmonise with the distant rumble of a dusty old car. I don’t mind the smudges, by the dog’s old seat, from his nose dragging across the window as the breeze overfilled his cheeks. A flaking yellow fence post falls. I am here to hear it.
As an environmental scientist, kaleidoscopic perspectives of the fragility and brutality of nature rarely escape my mind. These watercolours entomb an intense year, created with energy that harrowingly reverberated between my trained brain and intuitive body, exiting through my trembling human hands.


 

 

UPSTAIRS GALLERY

SOLASTALGIA
by Nicole Macdonald & Greg Harriden

With 'Solastalgia', artists Nicole Macdonald and Greg Harriden invite us to reflect upon theimpacts of human-induced climate change, our current responses to the issue and how we might act moving forward.

With her intricate graphite drawings, Nicole focuses on the effects of climate change on the natural world - even in parts of the world that are seemingly out of reach from the impacts of human behaviour. 

Drawing on his interest in comics and political cartoons, Greg's work breaks down the human response to climate change into three areas: denial, fantasy and change.
