MOST artists would be horrified if their precious works were smashed up by an angry passer-by, thrown on the back of a council truck or souvenired buy a furtive admirer.

Disrupting Space/Creating Space
Six contemporary sculptors

Sculpture, by its very physicality, disrupts the spaces that we occupy as human beings.

The viewer is forced to engage with the work in an active manner: they change their path to move around it, contort their bodies to peer into it, move through it and observe it from afar. Beyond this physical engagement, the pieces of sculpture on show in this exhibition also force the viewer to reconceptualise their notions of space on a metaphysical level. The works provoke the viewer into questioning how they perceive their own world, both natural and man-made.

This exhibition features the work of Corrigan Fairbairn, William Lungas, Emily McIntosh, Patsy Payne, Morgan Shimeld and Jacek Wankowski. ...more

The Art of Tolerance

IT MUST be quite confronting to be asked by Tanmaya Bingham if she can paint your portrait. It's not just the shape of your nose or the colour of your hair she's trying to capture. And it's not just you.

What Bingham wants is you and your partner. And before she starts the painting, she wants to come over and have a deep and meaningful conversation about your relationship.

LOOK

Waratah Lahy studies people while they're absorbed in the art of looking: taking a photo, studying a painting or cutting a cake, for example. She then paints then with all the effects of light and shade on their skin, hair and clothes but without any background and on transparent perspex so the focus is almost entirely on body language.
