A Place Apart
An exhibition by Julia Devereaux
A Place Apart explores the concept of identity loss in large institutional environments. The medium used to explore this loss is wallpaper, with its surrender of originality in patterns and repeats.The Place Apart exhibition has been created as part of he Art House’s solo development opportunity SOME TIMES, enabling Julia to develop new large scale works, as part of her exploration of this complex subject.Discarded treatment records, watercolours, inks, drawing and digital imaging have been combined in multiple steps to create the artwork – the process of making reinforcing the erosion of identity.
A Glaring of Owls
An exhibition by Lucy Mellor
A Glaring of Owls explores the mixed symbolism of the owl, a bird whose identity is both wise and terrifying.Their large forward-looking eyes are often associated with the human characteristics of wisdom and knowledge, whilst others see these birds of the night as an ill omen whose cry heralds death, ill health and misfortune.The Glaring of Owls exhibition has been created as part of he Art House’s solo development opportunity SOME TIMES, enabling Lucy to generate hundreds of owls from etching plates.An installation of the owls created will be roosting in the exhibition space, ready to meet their audience. What will you make of them? And what will they make of you?
