Nov 18-Jan 6 Nick Wade Study of a Collapse and Other Works. In elegant works combining painting and sculpture, Wade joins forms that echo domestic objects like a shelf, drawer, or cabinet, to purely painted forms or designs. Perspective becomes irrational while circular apertures create ellipses of light on each side, changing the appearance of form and colour. These are mesmerizing works that exist in between rationality and the play of instability, throwing into question our perceptions and experiences of everyday space.
