White Night at Melanie Roger Gallery

Ruth Thomas-Edmond presents new paintings alongside her fantastical sculptural 'heaps' created through layer upon layer of cardboard.  Thomas-Edmond's work renews our wonder of the meandering journey and particular passage that is the exploration of visual space.

In Alexi Willemsen's paintings the absurdity of being human is captured in strange tantric physiques carrying out ordinary actions layered with ceremony and iconoclasm. The painted veil is a metaphor and the painterly surface becomes a meditative borderland.  She embodies a sense of humour and lightness across mediums, in form and physicality.  Her paintings' diverse physical responses to light illuminate the ephemeral and fluid nature of experience, and of painting.
