MISCELLANEA

Overall, Miscellanea is playful but sometimes dark, humorous but sometimes sad, and occasionally mysterious for no good reason at all. As always, it’s the audience who tells the stories.

FLESH AND BONE

Flesh and Bone is a show of two separate, yet complimentary, bodies of work by two unique artists that viewed side by side reminds us of our own mortality and suggests that perhaps beauty is not only skin deep.

COUNTERPART

Human beings are wonderful actors.  Our masks help us get into character and we call on our counterpart as needed to act out the scene as the script requires. 

The Concert Series

Rapin’s work highlights the harmonious intersection of two art forms and encourages the
viewer to explore and celebrate the aesthetics and powerful psychology of music.

Enigma Variations – JT Winik

Thematically, Winik’s new paintings are composed of two main series; Girl(s) in a Corner and Female Circus Performers. The first series depicts young women in party dresses, sitting alone in corners, confronting the viewer face on. The simplicity of the theme allows the artist’s process to focus solely on interacting with mark-making until a figure forms, each with its own personality and attitude. Sometimes these girls appear a bit broken, other times they challenge the viewer, but mostly there’s a bit of both. It is that merging of conflicting senses that keeps the audience intrigued – with strength and vulnerability co-habiting as they so often do in real life.

CELEBRATION – New Works by Rob Niezen

New Works by J.T. Winik

“As a visual artist, I often explore themes of isolation, introspection and the fusion of contrary states of being.”

Cityscapes in oil by new artist Rob Niezen

His nightscapes show the dream world of our cities created by artificial lights. Rainy night reflections create bursts of colour, and reveal our theatrical surroundings. These paintings are a testament to the vibrancy of the city, and vary from broader contextual city views, to close-ups that render more abstract compositions, as the artificial lights create magic on small and large scale.
