West Gallery, Quay Arts | Sat 30 Sep – Sat 2 Dec 2017
Marius von Brasch and Howard Hardiman explore transformations within myths and alchemy through contemporary painting, drawing and video in their latest exhibition ‘Illumination’.
Kindly supported by the Arts Council of England, von Brasch and Hardiman have embarked on a year-long journey to find common threads of storytelling and mythological tales within their work. Although very different in style, their work is complimentary through examining shape-shifting animals and beasts, time and space and narratives of love, fear, sex and death.
An exhibition catalogue will be available to purchase, which includes images of all the works, annotations by the artists and an essay titled ‘Narratives of Perception: Time, Relationships, Identity and Transformation’ by artist and writer Ella Clocksin.
