Brendan Jamison: In-Between 7 Feb - 29 Mar 2008
The theme of ‘In-Between’ is explored through the use of space. A yellow spiral staircase connects the floor to the ceiling; a blue wool bridge rises up and stretches across the centre of the gallery; and a curving red wool tunnel.
The artist employs wool for its warmth and tangible quality, with its therapeutic healing qualities offering non-violent associations. As an artist Jamison is constantly aware and engaging with the visual and psychological effects of colour and form on the viewer. This technique breaks down many of the academic notions that can at times isolate and distance people from contemporary art. This is also a major role MCAC plays as both a Gallery and Art Centre in its belief that art is for everyone and altering perceptions of art.
