In the places between language, when you feel the grief of loss, the only thing we have are our bodies and time. Gwagle tries to speak the language of grief, uses abstraction and automatic gestures to create a feeling of confinement and peace.

Antagonym - Where two opposites coexist. This exhibition explores merging the line between figurative and abstract and unifying the dream-like state that both Jonathan Retallick and Dottie-may Aston’s work muse upon. The centrepiece of the show Antagonym is a sculptural collaboration between both artists. Made on-site for three weeks Antagonym was treated as an opportunity to push creativity and familiarity with media.

Veiled Speech
10/09/22 - 15/10/22

In Veiled Speech, Paul Eastwood exhibits a new series of tapestries that evoke the ruins of an imagined architecture. Monumental disassembled stone blocks are restacked to form new patterns. Some display fragments of Welsh inscriptions. Their weathered surfaces vie for attention with encroaching ivy.

Jonathan & Dottie-may

21/09/22 - 08/10/22

Antagonym is a three-week collaborative residency between Dottie-may Aston and Jonathan Retallick. Antagonyms are words with two opposite meanings. The couple feel this accurately describes this project as they approach it from opposing creative perspectives. Their opposing figurative and abstract practices have been brought together to challenge both artists to create work powered by their own inspirations. It’s a synergy of ideas as well as an invitation to showcase their creativity and actively engage with visitors. The duo wishes to start that creative conversation while working intuitively together for the first time on a sculpture.
