Laurent Craste: Shards of Vanity

Curated by Virginia Eichhorn, Director and Chief Curator

Craste’s artwork explores the many layers and meanings of decorative collectibles: as indicators of social status and class, and demonstrators of power, wealth and politics. He is fascinated by vandalism, especially that which accompanies revolution “when the works of art are destroyed because they incarnate an ideology, or symbolize a specific social class.”

Scott Everingham: Nothing is Too Dear

Curated by Heather Hughes, Curator of Temporary Exhibitions

Everingham’s work investigates the act of painting as a tool to create familiar yet fictional environments.  Nothing is Too Dear reveals shifts in the paint application itself and removal of the image.  As though a work of art existed before the removal, the dragging an depositing of the surface paint allows for a clean start; a second painting; new imagery.
