Fall 2016 in the Gallery

ExpandOctober 1 - October 13, Andrew Bonnycastle & David James Taylor

The exhibition shows the contrast between Andrew Bonnycastle and David James Taylor and their mediums, subjects and themes. Taylor shows a pure and imagined fantasy world with works centred around the themes of magic, mythology, ancient history and science fiction, which are popular at present. This contrasts deeply to the representational works depicted Bonnycastle, where locality and the human condition make his works intrinsic to the world we live in and often the things we overlook.
