PART II: THE TURNING WORLD
Mar 31 - May 6, 2017
Three painters who draw on their personal experience of specific places to investigate the fictional nature of landscape. They ask us to question prima facie acceptance of contemporary and historical landscape imagery, and encourage us to consider misremembering, idealisation, reality and artifice. And by extension, we are urged to consider what is natural, and what is man-made, and what is, in fact, a landscape.

DOMINIC SHEPHERD : OLD ENGLAND
Jun 23 - Jul 29, 2017
Private view Thu Jun 22 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Shepherd’s ongoing concerns have reached beyond the personal and historical to the political. In a climate where nationalism has gained so much traction globally, Shepherd addresses the relationship between actual and nostalgic notions of received traditions, opening onto a consideration of the complex relationship between Romanticism, folk, patriotism and nationalism.
