To Break and To Build | Suzie Smith
Friday 7th June – 26th July 2013
Artist Talk: 7pm, Thursday 13th June
To Break and To Build is a non-traditional print based exhibition bringing together various bodies of work that coalesce around the idea of transformation. Through deconstructing and reconstructing familiar objects, materials, and symbols, the work is an attempt to reveal new truths, perspectives, or double meanings. It is about looking at the world around us to try and find new ways to configure elements to better reflect what we want to see, pointing out how that understanding is often based on an already constructed context and perspective. The work plays with oppositional ideas such as strength and weakness, order and chance, sameness and difference, as well as, mass production and the handmade.
