A joint display by contemporaries and friends Robert Marsden and Bryan Illsley. The exhibition features gallery artist Marsden’s new body of minimalist plinth-based sculptures alongside Illsley’s lively dramatic paintings, and demonstrates their differing, yet instinctual, relationship with their respective materials.
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.
