MANLAND: A SURVEY OF WORK 1985 - 2015
Robert Simpson

15th Aug > 12th Sep
Main Gallery

In this exhibition spanning 30 years of painting, the artist has curated works that pertain to the underlying theme in his oeuvre; man and his environment. He has chosen works that could be placed in the genre of the figure in the landscape, but where objects, mostly man-made, replace the human figure as a form of the metaphor or symbol of the human condition.

This exhibition reveals changes to his way of making art as well as the varied approaches to his line of inquiry into man's complex place in nature.

The Garden of Forking Paths exhibition draws together notable historic and contemporary computer games created by Artists. The presented pieces span the last three decades-from Jaron Lanier's 1983 Commodore 64 game 'Moondust' through to three works from 2014 taking advantage of recent technologies such as the iPad and the Oculus Rift headset -a period which has seen incredible advances in technology and the birth of the information age. All of the pieces in the show can be played by visitors, including some on the original computers they were programmed for.

All people by nature desire to know. An indication of this is the delight we take in our senses; for even apart from their usefulness they are loved for themselves. Of all the senses, we prefer seeing, it makes us know and brings to light many differences between things.

Art is the capability to make universal judgments that cover all cases of a certain type; thus, it is a "universal knowledge" that includes also the reason why something is so and provides more understanding and more profound insights than any other way of knowing.

Metaphysics Aristotle
This exhibition explores the way artists have translated the knowledge gained through seeing the world around them into abstract art forms.
