'We are all curious tourists': new work by Clare Johnson, Orson Kartt and Sue Westergaard

'They tell us that we are on a rock, once believed to be the centre of the universe, formed four and a half billion years ago spinning in space. We are all earth bound passengers in a universe that spans one hundred and fifty billion light years. We are all travelers and alongside every living thing on earth can trace our ancestry to a bacterium that lived billions of years ago. We have evolved and are evolving in a messy unpredictable way. We are curious beings.
We huddle together and form cultures, sub-cultures and cliques. We collect things to connect positively and emotionally with certain times, places and people. We collect to inspire us and enhance a pleasurable association, to generate an atmosphere, to create a legacy, a personal extension of who we are. Souvenirs, which help create and extend our sense of identity, a sense of being in our mixed up shook up speeding world . In short we surround ourselves with “stuff” to help us make sense of it all.'

Clare Johnson's artwork is inspired by the qualities found in old postcards and a fondness for overlooked industrial buildings
Sue Westergaard's work commemorates ersatz bespectacled 'heroes' as pull-out fanzine souvenirs commemorating a life time of shortsightedness and a recent cataract operation.
Orson Kartt repurposes scraps of culture to express the joys and confusions of life in the 21st century.

Such is the stuff that makes life more fun, more meaningful.
Meet the artists over drinks and nibbles Saturday 22nd October between 2 and 5.
The gallery will remain closed on Monday 24h and 31st.
