IN THE SHADOW OF THE OBJECT

SHOP EXHIBITION
20TH SEPTEMBER -12TH FEBRUARY


I often think of the black ball as a brooding presence that stares back, and in this sense I’m excited see how it works being shown alongside the cadaver trolley paintings, which also look back at you. I want the paintings to be intense and disturbing, and at the same time fascinating. Death is like that. It is difficult to look at but at the same time compelling. Despite myself I can’t not look. Looking, when I look at death, is incomplete, out of control, my eyes no longer obey my ‘I’. I don’t want to see what I can’t stop looking at.

Jonathan Michael Ray 

I meet you at the cemetery gates (after Morrissey)

4TH SEPTEMBER - 6TH NOVEMBER 2021


This small shrine, by sculptor Jonathan Michael Ray was created at home during the first lockdown of 2020. Using objects found or collected only from local sources, it consists of artefacts that suggest debris from a burial site or sacred space. They point toward a story fragmented and unfinished leaving space for the viewer to imagine how it might unfold. It reminds me of the feeling you often have when standing in front of a grave. There is so much we don't know yet we are met with a strange feeling of familiarity through words, symbolism and imagery.  The latin inscription reads "we are all but dust and shadow".
