Stephen Coutts – Pareidolia and the Subconscious

The resultant works include drawings, prints and sculptures which invite subjective responses and degrees of perceived meaning.

Tony Lamont – Our Internal Shadows

12 June - 12 July

Tony Lamont’s highly saturated digital prints recontextualise elements from black and white chest X-rays. The digital image processes are cathartic to the artist, relieving stressful years he spent working in clinical medicine and radiology. The images also illuminate spiritual aspects of medical processes - “seeing” through the dark glass of technology internal bodily structures, things not visible to the naked eye.
