Once, Then, Gone
Observation serves as the key to decode the mysteries of reality. Whether it involves scrutinizing natural or human-made structures, the artists featured in 'Once, Then, Gone' turn to nature and introspective observation to uncover the possibilities for direct access to the divine. Amid the intimate scale and the layered patinas or textures of the showcased pieces, the artists explore the delicate balance between nature-inspired abstractions, nonobjectivity, and geomorphic interpretations. 'Once, Then, Gone' offers a glimpse into the sublime—whether it arises from human expression, is entwined with the natural world, or is purely aesthetic. Each work distils the sublime into an intensely intimate form of artistry. Here, the boundary between the tangible and the ephemeral dissolves, and the divine beckons in the works’ surfaces.
In 'Once, Then, Gone' the realms of mysticism hold dominance, crafting narratives that transmute the physical world into a universe of boundless possibilities. On view will be works by James Collins, Haroun Hayward, Ella McVeigh, James Owens, Yi To, Cheung Tsz Hin and Alyina Zaidi. The exhibition will open on October 27, 2023, and will run through December 1, 2023.
