An exhibition of new paintings and sculptures themed around portraiture and representations of the human body will be held in Paradise Row. Tom Gidley looks at the perception of the self in relation to the destructive and regenerative forces of the natural world.
Gidley combines objects and paintings to create intriguing relations and playful juxtapositions, a web of connections forming an open ended narrative. Seen in the context of the faces around them, the objects could be read as devotional objects or totems, the physical manifestations of thought processes we aren’t aware of.
