Archaos by Ingrid Stephenson
8 July 2018 – 8 September 2018
Objects originate and evolve over time, even millennia, and yet ultimately return to what they came out of. ARCHAOS explores the duality of creation and decay. It’s about the evolutionary process, the evolving complexity and intricacy and sophistication of what is created, alongside the decay, destruction, dismantling, reduction of all things back to their origin.
Artist Ingrid Stephenson says: “ I do what I do because I enjoy the process of making. I live close to the land and the sea and use what I find there. I like to look forensically at a found object – peel it back, identify what processes or treatment it has undergone; whether it has been hammered or worn. I like to see how things degrade. My subject-matter tends to be bleak because my materials include dead things, bone, metals, and things in the process of decaying. Sometimes there is a dark humour in decay.”
8 September 2018 – 9 November 2018
Canadian mixed media artist Carol Howard Donati works with fabric, paint, print, and recycled household materials.
An anthropologist by training, the focus of her art is everyday life and how it provides the framework for our human experience.
This mixed media collage installation aims to connect the artist to our local community from a continent away.
Carol says: “The world is an increasingly small place: We are drawn together, not just by technology and travel, but also by our common human interests, daily activities, and overlapping histories and cultures.”
“I am inspired by connections of heritage, culture and commonwealth and the opportunity to provide a personal presence in your community”.
