Featuring the work of artists Paul Hickey, Judy Foley, Roger O’Neill and Jane Locke, ‘Shul’ is a Tibetan word meaning a mark that remains behind - a footprint; a scarred hollow in the ground where a house once stood; the channel worn through rock where a river runs in flood; the indentation on the grass where an animal slept last night.
Working from this idea, all four artists have explored the concept of ‘shul’ through a series of creative sessions.
This in-house exhibition is the result of this work and brings together painting and multi-media installations.
The exhibition encourages the viewer to look for the past within the present, where the Complex itself provides a space for the artists to exhibit in a setting which enhances their work both within the physical aspect of the building and its contemporary context.
