to sit beside you - group show February - March 2023

Posted by Erin O'Malley on

This group show celebrates the unique relationship between all the artists collectively involved with the Railway Street Gallery + Studios. Curated and styled by Erin O’Malley of Madder & Rouge, this show has a specific interior context. You are invited to join us we explore the conversation that often exists between art and the interior setting in which it lives and breathes.

While many interior spaces call for one large feature piece on a key wall - a painting, print, photograph or sculpture, there is a wonderful energy that exists in the grouping of many art works of varied sizes.  A collected body of works placed together in a space becomes a curated work of art in and of itself.

Jean Willy Mestach, the late Belgian artist/collector wrote, “Assemble rather then collect. This means thinking of the collection as a whole, as a work of art in itself…”

‘to sit beside you’ encourages you to do this. To enjoy each work individually but to also consider the relationship of line, colour, texture, shape & theme that now exists with the works around it and the new meanings and connections such groupings of work invite you to make.
