BLAIR MCLAUGHLIN
Depart de biscottes
April 13th – May 1st (P.V. April 12th 6-8pm)

Depart de biscottes is a French expression for a difficult start; Biscottes is a kind of dried toast commonly eaten for breakfast; they are very fragile and tend to break easily. It can be used to explain the situation of looking at a past event from the present perspective and seeing that task you thought was very difficult was actually very easy.” Blair McLaughlin 2017. Blair’s paintings are amalgamations of meticulous research and explorations into violence, politics and philosophy. He is interested in what is our shared reality? Politically his work questions what time are we in? And if all of us in the same time?

CHARLOTTE KEATES
Sojourn
May 5th – 30th (P.V. May 4th 6-8pm)

Sojournis a new body of work made in response to her recent ‘inspiration trip’ around the United States and Canada.  “I am trying to negotiate a space that captures a sense of stillness and peacefulness that can be achieved from a temporary experience or place; even if only for a short while. I want to attempt to trigger a feeling or memory within the viewer, it’s important that they feel something; whilst documenting my own personal experiences and observations. Crossing the boundaries between nostalgia and the anticipation of the unknown.” Charlotte Keates 2017.
