Otherworlds presents a collection of works which delve deep into views and states of being which parallel, or allow access to worlds which sit outside the ordinary. It shows us what painting can do as a medium and as a space to reflect on where we are now, by taking us, (the viewer) on a journey to the Elsewhere.
The exhibition features the paintings of seven artists based in South and West Wales. The works demonstrate their ability and mastery of the medium itself to conjure, invent and use the pictorial space as a portal through which fantastic or dreamlike states can be visualised. The works shown draw on film, science-fiction, animation and leaps into the imaginary to combine elements taken from experience, with somewhere referencing the normal, to a place very far from it.
