An exhibition of abstract acrylic paintings by featured artist Barry Driver.
Barry says, “Imagine if a spaceship arrived and was found to be carrying artworks from a distant galaxy. Imagine how priceless those works would be to us humble humans.
Well, as far as any art-loving aliens out there would be concerned, my artworks ARE from a distant galaxy and, if I could just somehow deliver them in such a spaceship, they would surely be deemed equally priceless.
For me, the fact that the universe has the ability to produce and appreciate art is a profound source of wonder.
For my turn as the gallery’s featured artist, I’ve imagined just such an alien delivery, which I hope you’ll agree is a fun way to present my exciting new works."
