Through the Bramble

June 6 - June 28, 2024 | Reception: June 6, 2024, 6-8 PM

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce Through the Bramble, an exhibition of paintings and sculptures considering how space, size, and scale influence the perception of our surroundings.

Imagine for a moment: what if we were small, minuscule even, no larger than a bug? How would the world suddenly appear to us? In this whimsical yet thought-provoking exploration, the natural world takes on a surreal and fantastical quality. Innocent flower petals transform into menacing fangs, while regal bee queens become strange, grotesque creatures with bulging eyes. Frail blades of grass tower like insurmountable pylons, and tranquil ponds swell into vast, sprawling oceans. Spirited figures come out of the woodwork, pavement shadows hover like ghosts, hazy lands enshroud us in their mystical embrace. Transcending the perimeters of the physical plane, we may suddenly melt into a formless state of bliss, bouncing back and forth against the walls of reality and finally piercing through.

From monumental to miniature, the works featured in this exhibition defy conventional spatial dimensions, offering viewers a fresh and invigorating perspective on the world around us, and inviting us to explore the boundless possibilities of imagination.
