Wolves by the Road
May 16th-June 5th 2019
Wolves by the Road explores the space between familiarity and the unknown. The artists in this exhibition produce paintings that are often figurative while also questioning the relationship of the figures to their surroundings. As viewers we are included in this, sometimes invited into the scene. Other times we are voyeurs, unsure whether we should remain too long. The works oscillate between cheerfulness and darkness, comfort and dread, like a party with the lights flickering in and out. Things start to feel a little sinister. Is everyone accounted for?
