This exhibition alludes to creating beyond the centre. Beyond city shared studio facilities, foundries and print shops are few and far between. At the periphery art making can take a different tenor. It perhaps favours a more individualistic, solitary focus. There is a balance between outward observation and inward reflection; one chooses to travel to the centre or stay back to create. The periphery brings the perspective of distance and from this vantage, the artist ascribes meaning to the world through the signs and symbols of their time.
