- apocalyptic archaeology
Apocalyptic Archaeology features works that are depictions of a ruined world. The works are meditations on the brevity of life, and reveal the awareness of passing time, erosion and decay, and the ultimate deterioration of manmade artifacts, such as architecture, interiors, and landscapes.
- dreams and memories
Dreams and Memories includes works that explore the intangible and inescapable realm of the psyche. The artists pose questions about the nature and meaning of recalled experiences, and about the way in which dreams and memories intersect and even morph from one level of consciousness to another.
Voyeur/Provocateurs includes subversively witty scenes-satirical commentaries on art, culture, and politics. These works make the viewer into Peeping Toms that spy on secret scenes.
- unnatural nature
Unnatural Nature features work by artists that recreate natural environments using artificial materials and found objects which fool us into believing they are real places.view
'A watery yellow sun started to penetrate the thick fog. As I climbed through the broken window I noticed that tree roots had finally broken through the outer wall and young green shoots were growing up inside the room. A perfect stillness filled the building as the suns rays drove the shadows from the corner of the room. We knew this place as Bleak House'.
