"Art wakes you up to three profoundly important realities: One- the reality of the world, two - the reality of people, three - the reality of yourself.”

Bridget Watson Payne

You are here is an evocative exploration of creative identity that delves into the unique presence of the artist within their work and the profound moment of connection experienced by the audience. This exhibition invites artists to showcase their creative processes, revealing the personal, cultural, and emotional layers that shape their art. The wordplay in the title underscores the presence of "you"—both the artist and the viewer—highlighting the shared experience of being "here" in the present moment.

 

Theme and Inspiration:

 

The title "You Are Here" cleverly intertwines "hue" (a nod to the artist’s signature) with "you" (the presence of the individual), emphasising the intimate connection between the creator and their creation. It also subtly speaks to the audience, reminding them of their own presence in the exhibition space. This dual interpretation creates a rich dialogue about how art reflects personal identity and engages the viewer in the here and now.

As we prepare to hibernate and direct focus inward, we would like to invite artists to apply to take part in our group show opening Spring 2024.

 

You are here emphasises the connection between creator, their creation and the intimate space and time it takes to make something where once there was nothing.

By something we mean either thought provoking, beautiful or aesthetically intriguing.
