The exhibition features a wide range of works, in terms of
content, style and medium. Surreal landscape paintings are
presented, courtesy of Gordon Cheung, alongside photo-realist
paintings by Tom Hackney. They are complemented by the fairy
tale inspired drawings of Rachel Goodyear, Olivia Plender’s
large-scale gothic depictions of artistic genius, Carole Romaya’s
whimsical sculptures and Chris Jones’ hybrid plant species,
which merge the mediums of photography, print and sculpture.
Also on show are photographs from Elaine Constantine’s
acclaimed Tea Dance series; lifestyle images that are in stark
contrast to Mark Leckey’s bizarre re-workings of vintage
men’s magazine Parade.
