This exhibition involves the work of three artists, a father and daughter and a friend. They are different in their styles and you will see an interesting collection of pieces, but they share the common quality of engaging the imagination. Their work reflects concern for the visual interpretation of the world around them, but in ways that expand on what is perceived. As humans, one of our greatest gifts is to see beyond the surface to the underlying currents, and as artists we can explore these and manufacture them into representations for others to see. A crow is so much more than a black bird walking on a lawn. An arbutus tree speaks of ‘otherness’ as it twists and turns, reaching for the light while clinging precariously to a rock face. A face with one eye larger than the other opens our minds to realities that we know exist, but that remain mysterious.
