- English Tea Party...gone wrong, 2014

7 October to 1 November

My 'English Tea Party…gone wrong' is an installation that typifies an ongoing epidemic plaguing Great Britain; TEA, the most sought after narcotic on the British market, and the drug of choice in the United Kingdom since the 18th century.

In this installation addicts have gather together for the ritualistic “Tea Party”…but something has gone wrong. The degradation of the party becomes apparent in its’ aftermath as each junkie is feeling the adverse effects and ramifications of overdosing on tea.

Group scenes of these individuals’ highs and lows are captured in large drawings tacked to the wall. Extruding out from the base of each drawing, across the floor, are low banquet tables covered in white tablecloths. Each table has disheveled tea and tea paraphernalia randomly distributed between mounds of scones, jam and random objects. This installation is just one example of what is happening on a large scale throughout England.

- Systems of the Infinite, 2014

7 October to 1 November

'Systems of the Infinite' continues my interest in pattern systems and their relationship to the natural world. I draw on both traditional Japanese patterning and scientific visualisations to explore the mapping and cataloguing of nature. The pattern structures and colour codes make reference to scientific technologies, but also to the understandings of patterns from visual practices such as textiles, ceramics and architecture.

Daniel Connell, 'Night Light'

- Black Box Projects, 2014

7 October to 1 November

The project captures the ability of indicator and stand-by lights to signify and recall space. Standby lights can be abstracted into navigation points in order for an individual to recognise familiar spaces when nothing else can be seen. The imagination acts upon space, referencing indicator lights as a signifier to determine where things are, or where things should be. Collectively, indicator and stand-by lights are experienced in the form of personal constellations; constellations that become a second nature to the occupants of an inhabited space.

Standby and indicator lights are collected and charted across a wall. They cluster and disperse in accordance with their observed relationship to one another. Lights are abstracted to engender the unseen spaces they reside in.

- Studies in Motion, 2014

9 September to 4 October

Drawing is a personal obsession, through it I dissect the world its occupants and my relationship to these elements. 'Studies in Motion' is a series resulting from two years collaboration with Carl Sciberras and our collective Flatline. It features studies of choreographic sequences, their physics, energetic states and an intuitive response to the two. Furthermore it is a series of experiments with the drawn animation practice which has obsessed me for the last five years.

- La Baigneuse, 2014

9 September to 4 October

This exhibition references the depiction of the bather in art history, but using the medium of ceramics. It is a further examination of the sculptural form in various poses at rest and play. The figures are clad in vintage to modern day bathing costumes including some imaginary outfits! Which further adds to it being, a frolicsome look at the concept of swimwear.

Flatline, 'A Dance for Paul Klee'

- Black Box Projects, 2014

9 September to 4 October

Just like drawing, dance can be the process of taking a line for a walk...

Flatline is an interdisciplinary collective, at its core is Brenda May Gallery artist, Todd Fuller and dancer/choreographer, Carl Sciberras. Together they merge the values of their respective genres to create works which are a new dance/art hybrid. 'A Dance for Paul Klee' is a choreographic score forged from the logic of mark making after several drawing classes with a group of dancers. The piece is filmed on a beach made famous by Arthur Boyd and then articulated by a hand drawn transcription of itself. The culmination of these elements sees art and dance augment one another while taking part in a filmic duet of sorts.
