In the eighteenth century the term 'rococo' was initially intended as a slur, a flippant reference to fancy curves and fantasy sea-shells. But for a style discounted as superficial from the start, the rococo has had a remarkably enduring influence. In our next exhibition, we look at how rococo's pursuit of elegance and playfulness has provided a rich source of inspiration for contemporary artistic practice. The exhibition brings together the work of two artists: Alexia Sinclair and Sue Williams A'Court.
'Part of the mystery of art lies in what, as viewers, we connect with and part is in the artist's domain to have made that mysterious spark possible. Through many of these works are very different from one another, for me the interest is in what they have in common'
Prof. David Remfry RA

"...now here was I, new-awakened, with my hand stretching out
and touching the unknown, the real unknown, the unknown unknown."
- DH Lawrence, New Heaven and Earth
"A fascinating exhibition that lures you in gently, and then slowly seduces you, until you find you've entered another world, another reality, the unknown ... A superb and cleverly curated show."

Telling Tales is an exhibition rooted in fiction, in which worlds, truths and realities are created, dismantled and questioned.
The exhibition traces the fragile lines between utopian fantasy and its dissolution into dystopian realities. The artists are testing alternate narratives, realities and blueprints, examining life stories and unravelling (other)worldly designs "and the stories we tell ourselves to make sense of our existence" [Lex Thomas]. Telling Tales showcases the work of artists covering the age range of 19-84.
