misquoting Einstein but retaining the sense:
‘the perfect end in a process should be as simple as possible but no simpler’
In relation to . . . assumes a subject and in this case the subject explores notions of space, planes and the values between. Some of the work references the gallery space and some does not. Some of the work alludes to imaginative space whilst some to metaphysical space. Other work references what we cannot see. What is apparent in all the work is a constant engagement with the practice and practise of art to understand our world a little better.
The curators of this show are interested in pulling together artists with whom they feel a kind of artistic kinship, and hope this will create an overall gestalt which will allow the work to sit together, despite the very varied approaches of the participants. The aim is to create an event which has resonance coupled with engagement of the senses. It is said that art cannot be pragmatic but perhaps, instead, it only needs to be necessary.
