The Magic Theatre

14 Feb 2012–25 Feb 2012


An exhibition of works by the Time and Being collective. Rooted in the traditions of imaginative drawing and image-making, the group and its international guests all share a passion for picture making in its broadest sense and utilise many forms of expression from images to prose. Much of the work is based around visual storytelling and is without a linear narrative or literary or literal text - the images often therefore, evoke an element of ambiguity. The varied works in this touring show are a mixture of personal and interpretative responses to the myriad themes of myth, magic, habitat and landscape in all its forms. Works include Quentin Blake's unpublished personal drawing 'Women with Creature', Audrey Niffeneggers haunting images and new works by graphic designer, author and critic Jessica Helfands.
