Chris Banks, Elaine McCully, Ragna Mouritzen and Rhiannon Ewing-James are bound by a fascination with the stuff of everyday life.
They each recognise the ability of certain objects and materials to resonate with meaning – memories of childhood, domestic routines and the human touch - that is, both a physical and aesthetic ‘touch.’
It is often the most ordinary objects that can induce the most nostalgia, and a desire to hoard, collect and arrange meaningfully.
Each artist has a distinct approach to conveying the ‘language’ of material. Each firmly believes it is a commonly spoken and understood language.
They invite you to look at the artworks, and find fresh eyes for looking again at the ‘ordinary.’
