For many creatives, art is not simply a means of expression but also functions as a strategy for making sense of the world around them. These constructs of meaning provide the artist with an insight that is subjective yet transcendental, appealing to the narrative of personal experience while also reaching out to grasp further understanding. The selected artists in this exhibition all achieve this in a variety of ways, from Belinda Lee's multi-layered paintings that convey complex systems to Benjamin Lowder's process of drawing awareness to the geometry of the natural world.
