Thursday 4 May - Saturday 3 June
Observing the characteristics of time, space and place, McGuire and Dixon create an exhibition of spatial phenomena.
Mandy McGuire's mostly figurative paintings construct a sense of time and timelessness through the manipulation of space within a constructed place. The images act as a narrative suggestive of a situation or a memory.
Time is further explored through Andrew Dixon's layered, process-driven artworks, beginning with the grid as a formal element and successive layers of mark-making built to document time as a process. The paintings become an exploration of time as a continuum, showing interplay of the flat and the virtual.
