TENSION by Conrad Armstrong
Thursday 15 September – Sunday 18 September 2016
The show is comprised of an intriguing collection of paintings and sculptures from the body of work 'TENSION' (2016) by Conrad Armstrong. For this exhibition , Conrad investigates reflections on the structure of contemporary society in Britain.
TENSION is an emotional, post Brexit outburst from the artist. The works show Armstrong’s typically experimental material approach to creating a series of paintings that explore themes of Tension, Division and Violence in society. The works, however don’t embrace a culture of negativity and fear but instead look to the future in search of positive outcomes through healing, resistance and open dialogue between fractured communities.
