Mel Brown:

Mel Brown’s series of paintings explores notions of the body as a conduit for dialogue – individual and collective. A conversation initiated by the physicality of body positionings, acting as a medium for contemplation on perception, temporality and space. Skin operates as a performative surface, a dance of light and temperature, exposure and concealment, tension and release. The works bring to attention the intricacies and complexities of human connection. A reflection on the delicate balance of life and ways of being in the world and with each other.

Trena Everuss:

The pastel drawings by Trena Everuss continue her interest in urban environments and making the ordinary become extraordinary. 

Travelling to Asia frequently I am fascinated by the world that exists behind the tourist-focused sights. Often, I can find fodder for the extra-ordinary, as was the case with the trees on top of a shop, other times I make it happen.

Equally important as representing place, is the formalism in her drawings.

My aim is to create a distancing of the subject by focussing on the design elements of the picture. By doing so, an intimate representation of a familiar scene is created in conjunction with an abstract, in some cases moody image. This gives the drawing the contrasting qualities of a strongly detailed memory and also a detached more abstract scene.
