Patrick Queen Sculpture

Patrick Queen Exhibition

  • 3 July — 3 August 2014 *on now

Working interdisciplinary through painting, drawing, sculpture and photography Patrick Queen's work examines this core concept of change aiming to make sense of past, present and future events and the role that they have in shaping who we understand ourselves to be today in the here and now.

"and sometimes if you sit, close your eyes and just feel who you are - where are you?" - Osho

The work on show is the result of ongoing research into the themes of time, location and movement and the influences they have in shaping and changing human identity. Central to these themes are questions relating to change and stasis, past and present and the nature of self and other - where does the past end and the present begin and where exactly am I able to locate myself within these moments? The work aims to explore the relationship between these themes and to make visible the moments of overlap and tension that can arise when exploring a possible consolidation to these questions.

Suitable for

  • Any age

Languages
