10 February - 9 April, 2022

This group show opens 2022 with a number of artists that have all created portals of one kind or another – visible, conceptual, mythical or otherwise – remaking the pictorial window and breaking through to the other side, leading viewers on a journey through the looking glass. The assembled works, some historical, others completed recently, open up the gallery space through a number of physical, metaphysical and metaphorical portals, offering passage to entirely speculative or abstract realities, new spatial prospects, fictional worlds and even paths through time.
