TRACE Private View - Saturday 8th January 4 – 6pm Exhibition - 8 January -19 February 2011 John Hansard Gallery Project Space
Elizabeth Tubergen – Exposure
‘Trace’ is an exploration into the removal and recording of geographical forms from their original, fixed context. The study of the landscape treads the line between representation and abstraction, to extract and reinterpret a given space; to re-contextualise segments of the landscape by calling attention to a space that is permeable, and that is associated with a sense of fragmentation.
The exhibition is an attempt to question elements of space, scale, and occurrence of light. The artists are exploring the limits of removing, capturing and pushing the rudiments of the ever-changing landscape through their own semiotic systems, making observations outside of the gallery space and re-contextualising them within.
Artists: Eloise Rose, Joel Papps, Elizabeth Tubergen, Oliver Gardiner and Frank Pudney
