November: John O’Loughlin
‘My work begins with questions that review my beliefs in the Catholic theology learnt in my youth. My focus has been to think about the way that the saints have been venerated throughout history, about miracles, ‘life after death’, and the way that God interacts with creation. The ‘Reliquaries’ and religious vessels prompt the viewer to reflect on the use to which these vessels are put and the reality behind the ideas that this use expresses. Does God intervene directly into human life through miracles?
October: Tim Murphy: Painter
In my paintings I strive to represent the often enigmatic nuances of direct visual perception, particularly the portrayal of subtleties hidden from the camera lens. For me, painting is almost a daily ritual which usually takes place in the corner of the kitchen of my small inner-city flat, the constraints of which tend to dictate the size and subject of my work. It’s lucky I’m consistently amused by small things.

13 June – 10 August: Chris Rowe: Mixed Media
Chris’ work explores people, the way we are, our relationships with our environments and our many layers of history.
Chris’ artistic expression is informed by her life’s experiences, taking the personal to the universal. The interaction of people with each other and their environment is the constant thread that weaves throughout her work. Her people are schematic, reflective, contemplative, layered and transparent, of different times and perspectives often blending into their surrounds.

8 May – 12 June: Chieko Hester: Origami Artist
Growing up in Japan, Chieko fondly remembers her fascination and enthusiasm for origami beginning around 6 years old, when her father taught her to fold a paper crane. Whilst the origami pieces are based on tradition, she is influenced by the desire to combine both Eastern and Western design aesthetics.
