BIOGRAPHS

12th Nov > 21st Jan
Main Gallery

Large scale abstract paintings and mixed media sculptures in this exhibition can be read as biographs or time-maps. Each map is a performance record or test result of how we individually engage with the drama of passing time. Each new moment offers us the experience of life refreshed.  This show is both therapeutic and conceptually provocative.

REAL MEN AND THEIR DOGS

The artist was born in Morocco in 1960.  During her childhood, her family used to hunt wild pigs and kept 3 dogs to help in the hunt.  For A-F there is a romance in this continued hunting tradition.  Hunting feral pigs with dogs is not for the faint hearted.  It can be brutal and bloody.  It is always intense.

A-F has painted portraits of hunting dogs for many years.  In this exhibition she has included a portrait of the hunter as well as the dog portrait.  These portraits bring the viewer into the world of hunting and the bond between man and dog.

[Duhk-ling] extends my exploration of belonging and relationship, engaging in a new community through portraiture in nature.  Focusing on the humanity of the local people who purchase my ducklings; I find vulnerability through their connection with new life.

It is a significant departure from my work to date which has involved intense engagement and relationship in densely populated regions.  By responding to subjects in my environment I find a direct immediacy and connection beween my camer and people.
