Margarita Sampson

The Peotic Lens
The Poetic Lens:
Relative Constructions

12 September to 28 November 2015

Blaide Lallemand, Caroline Huf, Ellis Hutch and Genevieve Swifte have been drawn together by common interests that span multifaceted art practices. They have formed the artist collective Relative Constructions in order to create exciting and experimental exhibitions, publications and collaborative projects.

In The Poetic Lens they explore extremes of sensory experience through photography, video, installation and sound to create immersive and poetic works of art. For this exhibition each artist has started with photography, using the poetry of the lens through which to encounter landscape and environment. While the end results are not necessarily photographs, the poetic lens has provided a frame, and a point of departure for the artists’ to create beautiful, mysterious and thought provoking works of art.

Marilynne Barnes & Liz Priestley

29 August 2015 to 10 October 2015

Marilynne Barnes and Liz Priestley, although using different techniques and subject matter both are anchored in the style of the romantics. They both paint using a language of moods and emotions; Marilynne’s paintings convey the changing physicality and sexuality of the female form, and Liz’s outlining of a nostalgic landscape influenced by the likes of Turner and Constable, with a contemporary sensitivity.
