Mr Everybody - A nice place to sleep

A Nice Place To Sleep is an exhibition of new paintings by Mr. Everybody.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin considered that it was in the encounter of the “material things” of a place such as earth, sand, gravel, wood, grass and water that a person could find “a fresher contact with the roots of the spirit.” Knowing that, and knowing that Mr. Everybody’s current concerns include aspects of the human condition such as alienation, isolation, hope and resilience in the face of the darkest emotions, it is not surprising that for this series that the artist has returned to the landscape.

Robert Duxbury - Misanthropic Paradise

Misanthropic Paradise is an exhibition of new watercolour paintings by Robert Duxbury.

Misanthropic Paradise explores the elusiveness of the deep and complex emotions that reside within our subconscious. Like the memory of a dream, vague and without form yet stirring with meaning, calling out to us in a voice we can hear but not understand.

Greg Olijnyk - The Contrivance

The Contrivance is an exhibition of hand made cardboard sculptures by Greg Olijnyk.

The thing contrived, planned, or invented; a device, especially a mechanical one; an artifice; a scheme; a stratagem.

Greg Olijnyk’s sculptures turn the everyday medium of cardboard into fantastical objects. While this common material would seem to defy manipulation, Olijnyk manages to fashion it into sophisticated shapes and mechanisms. From a set of buildings where you can see crushed beer cans on the roof, to a feather in the hat of a robot samurai, the complexity and detail of his work contributes to a sense of whimsical character and narrative.
