Wed 13 Nov - Wed 04 Dec 2019 'A Party Hat for St. Denis' - Dr. Matthew Jackson (Gallery A)
An exhibition of paintings by Matthew Jackson examining identity through the narrative interplay between truth, memory and imagination. The title of this series of work speaks to this weirdly redundant endeavour. Saint Denis, famously beheaded before being beatified, is often depicted as a saint with his detached head carried in his own hands. Suggesting a party hat for Saint Denis is both inciting a sense of ridiculousness, but at the same time posing the question; why should such tragic figures not be celebrated?

Wed 20 Mar - Sat 06 Apr 2019 'Bloom' - Wade Taylor
Bloom explores the relationship between painting and the film image, between personal memory and its connection with the histories of those who are strangers. Working from a long-ago acquired collection of Kodachrome film slides, Wade interprets images and worlds that he has had no direct experience with. Locations, subjects and time periods are unknown but through the process of painting the subjects take on a personal dimension, borrowing memories and elaborating, editing, and drawing out narrative. The work is a process of restoring life to forgotten histories.
