MICHAEL WEDD – In My Beginning is My End
Italo Calvino once wrote; My inside was out and my outside was in…originally, I was surrounded by water and now I am constituted largely of it.’ From the earliest signs of life on the planet as mono-cellular life-forms to our current evolutionary status as the dominant controlling species, we have displayed a remarkable ability to adapt genetically.
Michael Wedd’s work, both figurative and non-figurative, is an exploration of ideas pertaining to our collective identity. “It is a mapping of spatial and tonal relationships, antithetical opposites, micro-macro relationships, symbols, languages and mark making. A personal D.N.A of emotional intelligence/existence.”
In My Beginning is My End (the title taken from T.S Eliot’s Four Quartets) is a retrospective exhibition of unique state prints made within the last decade of Michael Wedd’s art career. Michael describes his art practice as “a way of connecting with the world and reconnecting with the primordial aquatic. Submerging and emerging images caught between creation and destruction.”
Exhibition dates: 2 – 23 March 2017
