The exhibition will be held from
12th January to 12th February. 

Madeleine Cruise explores the role of ritual and habit in everyday life and the way these practices contribute to personal identity and purpose. Her work is inspired by iconography and the performance associated with her experience of religious and cultural festivities.

Jen Denzin has exhibited regularly in Newcastle for the past 10 years. She uses commonplace materials such as plastic buckets, drinking straws, cable ties and tacky mementos to construct gaudy assemblages and vibrant environments. Her work is informed by historical meeting points, honing in on the interplay between peoplegroups and cultures specifically in the AsiaPacific region.

Mandy Robinson uses the repetitive nature of her practice as a form of meditation. Her wonderfully detailed line work builds up form and texture. This same meditative practice translates into her sculptural work, which she describes as 'examples of three-dimensional drawings.'
