Hang in the Saddle
13th - 20th November 2015
Curated by Paris Johnson
Artists: Paris Johnson, Daryl Brown & Robin Fairburn
Paris Johnson brings together a collection of abstract painting and sculpture that explores the conscious and subconscious inevitability that is faced highlighting themes of faith, pain, life and death, the relationships between random shapes, objects and how we ourselves may see ourselves within the emotions this randomness might stir up and invoke.
Hang in the Saddle derives from the saying 'in the saddle' where one feels they are in control but are hanging on from the pressures of the responsibility in order to get it done. From this point we can take a minds-eye-snap of what is around up , the relationship towards or against each other and how (if at all) we might be affected by this.
