A solo exhibition of the work of Simon Brewster, 11th January - 2nd February 2013  (Private View 10th January 6-9pm)  ...a grimy scuff-mark becomes a bank of twilight clouds – and back again

Simon Brewster’s recent art practice has sought to explore the boundaries and crossovers between contrasting states such as: urban squalor and poetic dilapidation, beauty and ugliness, accident and contrivance.  He is interested in the perceived value of objects presented as art works, and how the context of such presentation affects that perception.  This investigation is infused with a romanticism regarding landscape.

Exhibition curated by Joanna Bryant
