Look Again: Form + Void

Print of a landscape of a snowy field with a line of trees in the background

Exhibition Run: February 18, 2023 – January 20, 2024
Curator: Corinna Ghaznavi, PhD

Look Again is a study in representation. It examines how an artist creates form and volume using a minimal amount of colour, how the use of negative space enhances an image, and how repetition and slight variations in a series alter how we interpret and understand what we are looking at. The selected artworks have muted or monochromatic palettes, and many are pared down to a few lines or a single focused object. There are works that draw us in and require examination, and others that need us to step back to see the whole.


A Delicate Hand: Florence Carlyle

Painting of white roses

Exhibition Run: February 18, 2023 – June 24, 2023
Curator: Corinna Ghaznavi, PhD

In response to the exhibition Look Again: Form and Void in the main gallery, A Delicate Hand showcases works by Florence Carlyle that are dominated by neutral, white, or pale palettes. Similar to the works in Look Again, these artworks by Carlyle examine how light and atmosphere are depicted and how pale objects are given volume against a pale background.
