Audrey K. Hulm
No comments

  Conversations surrounding the over-arching and increasingly redactive term Feminism in panel or group style setting, can tend to be focused on picking apart semantic terminology and deciphering the ideology’s dogmatic past. It can be frustrating when one is looking for more tangible answers to proposed prompts, in this case the intersection of binary concepts…

Meg Stoios
No comments

  The culmination of Sophia Dacy-Cole’s residency at Friends of the Earth (FoE) first presented itself to me as its title, Irrational Emotions. The itchy two-word phrase struck me like a mosquito bite and my attempt to navigate a way around it only increased the need to scratch. Unless the title is tautological or false,…

Harriet McInerney
No comments

    Pat Brassington creates a miasma of unusual images, sometimes carnivalesque or puppet-like and at other times stretched or contorted human forms. There is always a hint of lusciousness, or a just-out-of-reach intimacy in these representations of beings and ideas that are more complex than a single image can hold. The artist’s stretched and…

Depending on whether the work is commissioned or Leung’s own, it exists somewhere on a spectrum of cartoony to psychedelic, but is always brightly coloured.
