Caroline BroadheadSurface Tension
A new body of work sees Broadhead returning to the chair form, upon which acts of transformation and reinvention upend expectations of familiar objects and materials. An accompanying series of intricately beaded pieces further explore the instability of seemingly fixed images, imbuing them with a kinetic energy that can shift their sense of presence and meaning.
The gallery will be closed on Saturday 1 June.

Carol McNicollSurface Tension
A new series of 'patchwork pots' inspired by the artist's early work and continued interest in making clothes. McNicoll's ceramics are conceived to exist in the domestic sphere, also taking on external elements of the world through using inventive moulding techniques and found objects sourced from charity shops and flea markets. Her work casts a wry, albeit entertaining, glance at our complicated society and encourages the viewer to engage with questions about identity and global issues.
