Spaces for making, conversation, and reflection.
Occupying their own space from wall to floor to ceiling within South Block, these works present an exchange of ideas through sculpture, print, painting and installation as vehicles for creative discourse. Each piece is connected through making over time and through experimentation that expresses the individual focus of each artist. These range from incorporating objects with printmaking, to suspended rhythmic sequences, and from paint saturated sculptural forms to embedded pattern.
