Rod Barton Gallery - Gabriele Beveridge, Tomas Downes & Stuart Elliot 04/08/11 - 03/09/11
08 August 2011
The latest group exhibition at Rod Barton Gallery showcases the work of Gabriele Beveridge, Tomas Downes and Stuart Elliot, a John Jones artist surfaces client. Working across mediums of sculpture, photography and painting, the works on display have an open and fragmentary nature, allowing them to reflect off and communicate with one another. ‘The gestural surfaces of Stuart Elliot’s paintings mimic the images of ruptured concrete shielded under tinted glass in Tomas Downes’ floor sculptures. These in turn are reflected in the dappled faux granite and complex imagery within Gabriele Beveridges assemblages’. Drawing comparisons between the pieces forces the spectator to consider the negative space around them, their own physicality and that of the gallery space.
